Pat: give it time you'll be surprised how you get used to it. One thing though- keep the sensors clean! (Bits in the bumper that tell it when to beep). It would infuriate me when his lordships car would need incessantly while reversing through an empty street because the sensors were dirty.

Morning all; a manic weekend with over 500 miles in the car covered. My spine (already damaged) is in bits. I think it's time to look at upgrades for the drivers seat!

Today is try to get all the jobs done although with no tumble dryer it's going to be tricky!

So far I have made a cup of tea and started writing a to do list. That's enough to deserve a rest now surely? ;)

Punk: the Sheffield honey company have tweeted a few photos of snow fluttering in the wind.

Nothing to get excited about yet.

His lordship is redeeming himself after this morning's delights - He's stopping at the only fish & chips shop that does gluten free battered fish.

Hedgehog or Rat Hole??

That looks definately rat like.

But it won't just be one rat. There will be a family and the damage they can cause is immense.
