Found some Stella Artois on the doorstep when I got home.  Guessing from an OOF'er :)

Hope it wasn't from STEMO. You might find that drinking St. Ella, now means you wake up with a sore 4rse rather than a sore head.  ;D

Well, seeing as I managed to rupture Tim again whilst sat on the potty yesterday, and suffer the aftermath of a Lamb Naga today, I already feel that way...   ...part "uncomfortable", part pain, mostly fully clenched.

Took the Battlebus to work in order to replenish its lost electricity.  Had to replenish its lorry fuel as well.

Took offside front wheel off to investigate slight rubbing on r. hand lock. God, i hate wheel bolts. >:( Getting too bloody old for that sort of thing, Managed to get it on in the end but too knackered and CBA to do the other side. Apart from a couple of very slight scuffs couldn,t see anything obvious anyway. Will let my friendly indy garage have a proper shufty next week. :-[

The Battlebus seems a bit lacklustre again.  After Mrs TB has used it, it goes much better.

I assume she is ragging the 'nads off it everywhere?

Been noticing the odd sluggish turnover on the daily driver, wasn't sure if it was a dying battery or starter motor acting up (Seems more inclined to do it when the engine is hot) did it the other night so I popped another battery on it from one of the other cars and so far normal service has resumed..... will see how it goes. Previously metered out the alternator output under load etc and all seemed fine.
