Not me someone else.  ::)

I collected a nice scrape in the drivers door on the Mondeo today in Tesco's car park.  >:(  On the plus side the guy was honest, promised to pay for the damage and I have his (London  ::)) address and phone number.

I'll have ago at polishing it out this afternoon, but to be honest I'm tempted to put it into the bodyshop, get them to sort it and all the other dings and scratches, and send him the bill!  ::)

Didn't think us grockles were supposed to be going there! ::)

Took the new wheels to be refurbished... Will find out on Thursday how they turn out  8)

Broke the combination stalk and got a nasty misfire on Pot4... Presumably made worse by the fact that each pot has two plugs, although the code didn't specify, so probably the coil getting warm... I was being, er, enthusiastic at the time :D

Replaced the used fuel as well... Must be almost a month since I last put any in, and that was only a top up from the tank in early March  :o Not grumbling at a pound a litre though 8)

My wife reported that her Insignia was not cooling properly and we could not recall having it regassed. Like a good husband I went to assist and selected AC button and hey presto problem solved. She has only had it since 2012

You mean the big button with the snowflake on it?

I probably wouldn't mention how you 'fixed' it...  ;D

Washed both of them. Just went outside to check they were locked and a bloke walking his dog stopped to tell me how he often admires my Omega as he is passing. Full of praise for how nice it looked for its age etc. Turns out he is retired flying squad and used to have one in the same colour as a "company car".
Spent some time telling me how he has fond memories of driving them.  :)


Of course, he might have been full of shite.  :D

I would like to know what will happen this year, but I don't have 20 20 vision.
