You can actually cut hard upto the hearth as long as all other sides have an expansion gap. There are some small trims which would be better than sealent.

Hopefully they did a proper job and replaced the skirting with the laminate under, rather than bonding the awful quadrant on?

Unfortunately .... they used the 'awful quadrant', though in their defence it's the deep (8"?) stuff in an old Victorian terrace. And all the rooms have just been painted
Which small trims do you mean? A look on Google shows there are flexible flat trims more like door thresholds

My daughter has just had laminate flooring laid. I know there has to be an expansion gap around it but .... they have left a gap around the front edge of the fire place/hearth. While my daughter is very pleased with the whole thing, I think this gap looks horrible and will be a general sh1te trap.
My question is .... is there some kind of flexible 'rubber'/flexible 90 deg trim available to cover this gap? There are some fairly small radiuses/radii around the hearth. Or just fill the gap with wood coloured sealant?

Mrs B works for ASDA and their saving scheme is shares based .... we/she have virtually doubled the amount paid in a few times. Time will tell as to whether there is chance to buy any more ....

You joke, but yes they tried everything to persuade me they were genuine after I said that, then after I rang off to report the event, they rang me back working hard to convince me they were legit.
They were panicking, then when I repeated what I thought of them, THEY cut the call! 

I had pissed them off and I was happy! ;D ;D ;D

'THEY' cut the call with me when I question them too ..... I very much doubt the mention of plod has them even bothered, let alone panicked  ;)

Didn't early cars just have the one reservoir?  :-\

Rear tyres are quite large 285/30/20 and about 270 each.

I had an advisory on a tyre on my ML last week, a bit smaller though than yours at 265/45/20 I asked at a local tyre place, they ranged from 120-odd for Landsail to over 300 each for a Michelin!!  ???

Is that piece of wood on the handbrake from a toilet chain flush?

I certainly looks like it  ;D

Most newish cars are. Corsa courtesy car I had last month was.

At least I have the option of using it or not .... from what I can tell, a lot of newish cars apply it when you stop whether you want it or not.

Rears tend to be a bit more complex because of the handbrake mechanism(Omegas are just old with their separate drums) and  .....

It's not something I've really looked at, but the rear brakes of my 07 R Class were a similar set up to the Omega ie disc/drum.

ML is a silly electric thing though that acts on the disc

Captain Sir Tom Moore, earlier this afternoon.

//TB ponders if he has ever had to do anything to TBE's front brakes, other than regular pad and disc changes, and the associated light cleaning whilst doing that.

I think the addage of use 'em or lose 'em is apt here ;)

All my Vauxhalls have been the same as yours. The only car I've needed new/recon calipers on was my R Class & it had plenty of use.

I've just put 78 litres into The Barge to fill it.

I expect that to last until March ;D

I put 99 into the ML last week .... (I paid at pump so that's all it would give me) .... it'll be lucky if it sees the next couple of weeks  ??? ;D

I've just been Top Trumped by James ...  ;D ;D ;D

are they not all as bad/good as each other?
My daughter ordered a bathroom suite for her 'new' house, the courier was DHL. They were delivering to a terraced house in a northern mill town so they arrived in a wagon that turned out to be too big to get up the street. So while at the bottom of the street suggested that my daughter collected it in her car & take it to her front door herself (obviously didn't want to carry it in the pissing rain) :-X. Bathroom place wouldn't allow her to collect it herself & DHL could only deliver a week later despite their opps up. Following week her delivery time was between 7 & 11 am, she tracked the delivery until 7:20 at which time she then got a message to say that they were sorry but they were unable to complete the delivery  :-\. An hour later after various phone calls it turns out that that her bathroom had not actually been loaded and it looked like it wasn't being delivered that day.  Then she got a call to say, that as it was going to arrive on a smaller vehicle,  the bathroom was coming from Skem and would be arriving that day .... which it eventually did. Left hand ... right hand springs to mind.

Yesterday, she got an email to say that her bathroom would be arriving this week!!!!  ??? ??? ???
