Pissed off that a minor chest infection and a tummy bug a couple of weeks back has sent my INR blood reading through the roof. Had to go in today to have that foul tasting Vitamin K fluid to try to reverse the symptoms.
On the plus side, Iím not allowed to do anything manual in case I cut myself and bleed to death, so bang goes her plan of me plumbing in the new vanity unit.  :) :y

Just been watching Bangers and Cash and one of these is up for auction. Must admit I've never heard of it, but what an amazing car.

I tried to find the episode  :(

The news that there were another 534 yesterday ........

I was just reading that around 6000 migrants so far have crossed the water this year alone, with the 534 you mentioned being the highest in one day.
What the hell is wrong with this country, is nobody running it anymore.  >:(

Years ago it used to be normal practice when coming up  behind someone you wanted to get past, to give a quick non aggressive flash of the headlights, and more often than not they would move out of the way to let you past.
Do that these days, and someone might just force you off the road and stab you.  :(

Many years ago I was travelling up the chalk hills on the M40 when I came up behind a Vauxhall Senator in lane 3. It sat in lane 3 for some time so as I approached I gave a quick flash of my headlights. The Senator moved in to lane 2 so as I passed it I gave a two tone horn thank you and raised my hand as I passed. He responded with a two tone horn acknowledgmentÖÖ except his horns were a Police siren.  :-[  He did pull me over and thankfully he was an old school copper who just gave me a lecture and a warning about my speed, but with a grin on his face.
As we parted, he said ďIf sir would please accelerate hard on the hard shoulder before rejoining the motorway that would be good, but given the way you drive that shouldnít be a problem to youĒ.  ;D
Iíll never forget that, and what a decent chap.  :y

Ah, driving is so much more relaxed now Iím reformed.  ::) :y
I thought they'd been muck spreading on the fields, but I think the smell might by YZ's bullshit ;D

I was reformed, as I sat behind the GLA all the way. Totally reformed. A new me.

 ;D ;D :y

ÖÖ..
 I'd still love to have a decent run again in an SD1 Vitesse but again I'm sure it wouldn't feel the same as the first time I drove one!

I owned a Moonraker Blue Rover SD1 3.5 Vitesse TP for around 5 years. It was a big (for that era) comfortable car, but boy did it like a drink. It sounded sweet, especially after Iíd removed the centre boxes from the zorst.  :y  Rust got to it in the end, mainly the door bottoms due to poor drainage and the rear arches. In later years a couple of colleagues completely rebuilt their Vitesseís with new parts from Rimmer Brothers, but back then I had a young family and was finding 16mpg on a good day a drain on my wallet, very often much lower the way I drove it. As far as I can recall the V8 and transmission never let me down.  :y

Does passing on the left if there's a clear lane between you count as undertaking, or could it be argued that it's safer than being sat up someones arse getting all pissed off about it? :-\

A43 so only two lanes.  :y  Personally, as Iím properly reformed now, I would have moved back into lane 1 and slowed down very slightly, taken a chill pill and put on some soothing music.  ::)

The old me would have waited for the gap in lane 1 and then very innocently crept up the inside for the undertake, keeping a constant lookout for any danger from the car Iím undertaking. Ah, driving is so much more relaxed now Iím reformed.  ::) :y

Ö..
all prescriptions are requested  on the NHS app and they text me when they are ready for collection,  ÖÖ.

Yep same here.  :y  Our app is Patient Access, which is what I use for my repeat medication that Iíll need for the rest of my life.

My dad manages independent living with carers twice a day.

His eight tablets a day are delivered weekly in a nomad ( daily dispensing box) by the local chemist.
ÖÖÖ..

My parents had their repeat medication delivered monthly, and the pharmacy told me to order the following months medication at the end of the week before the final week of the month. That way they always had a weeks grace, so they were always covered.  :y

One of our directors had one with the limiter removed. It did around 205mph apparently, which was perfectly legal on some of the roads where he came from.  :y

Wow, you get some decent courtesy cars donít you.  :y  Whenever Iíve taken a £50K beemer in, Iíve been given an old 318 or similar.  ;D
Car salesmen can smell wealth so they know itís worth letting you rag about in it if theyíre going to get a sale in return.  :y
A Competition Edition as well you jammy git.  :y

A whole squadron of birds that shat all over my car pissed me off today. It was so peppered with bird poop I had to pop in to Tescoís to buy a bucket, car mitt and water to wash it off. As Iím away from home I guess Iíll have to bite the bullet and take it to one of those scratch and go car wash places, as my attempt hasnít dried out favourably. ::)
you had to buy WATER  :o
do you wash it with Evian or Perrier  :-\
are you in the Sahara Desert  :-\ the UK has water falling out the SKY for free
that's how my Omega is getting washed right now  :)

These birds were loaded with Napalm Dave, so it required emergency measures.  ;D  Iím hoping for rain now, to wash off the absolute dogs dinner I made of it washing the poo off with just 1L of water.  ::)  The wash wipe wouldnít touch it on the windscreen.  :-\
