    I have learned that I can go from Calor Propane to Camping Gaz by loosening and tightning one jubilee clip to change the regulator. :Smile:

    I found out that when Autoglass say they will come and repair a stonechip between 8am and 1pm they don't bother to phone or turn up.:Angry::Angry: and when phoned to enquire where they are was told I'll send an email and find out. what crap service.
    If I now use the van and the window cracks. I will hold them responsible for any excess.
    still at least whilst sitting and waiting I can continue to read the posts, hee hee.

    Lol @ Joy :)

    To trust my sixth-sense...I knew that, if I went to the C & CC rally this weekend, that I would be sitting in a soggy field.

    So I didn't go. Woohooo - there's always next week. :Laughing:

    That we are setting off to France at 6pm and all tyres need air in them and the compressor that does 260 psi doesn't. Aaaaarrrggghhhh:Angry:. But...the new jack works and now we have 1 less tyre as it is at the garage up the road being pumped up!!

    Giving the van a check up before we take off for another few weeks on Sunday and found the wires to the inverter loose, also got on the little collapsible stool I bought at Stratford show and found some packets hideing at the back of the cuboard 2008. So now having a good sort out before getting on the road again. :RollEyes:

    Oh no....you've been taking those big blue pills again, haven't you? :Mellow:You were supposed to throw them away.

    Sigh...here comes another restraining order.....first Argos, when the car battery charger was faulty and I didn't have my receipt anymore.....now Dunelm.

    I told you we should have stolen those expensive memory foam toppers at Knutsford, remember? You were going to kick up a fuss again with that trailer bloke regarding the ramp for your trike....form a distraction.

    (ooops....I've mentioned the trailer bloke....now she's going to go postal :Eeek:)

    I have learned that when the van is booked in for a MOT you have to remember to go and get it out of storage and take it to the testing station if you want it done:Doh:

    That the sensors most likely needed cleaning in the waste-tank. They did. They were cleaned and they now give a true reading! - well at least it's correctly showing empty now instead of half full LOL

    I've learnt that when SWMBO says NO we can't go yet, we have to wait until our daughters comes home to say hello/goodbye. SHE MEANS IT:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
