doc I had a car problem a few weeks ago and I totally agree - the faffing about waiting for them etc. I had taken the girls out for dinner so just waited till I got home rather than hang about the restaurant with them - indicator had stuck on and wouldn't go off. In the end it needed a new unit but by the time AA came out it was almost 10pm etc etc. The guy was great but the AA were very pedantic about everything. Someone else had to come out and take the car the following day because they wouldn't let him take it there and then without charging storage for it at the garage overnight.
Yvie - I'm like fidget - live and let live outdoors but coming in's a different matter! I had one in my shed over winter. Didn't know he was there till I saw the marks on the inside of the door - nothing for him to eat in there apart from grass seed that he couldn't get into. Found him when I cleared out a little bucket...
Got a lot done outside as it cleared up - a washing out as well - but off to hairdresser now with youngest fairy for her 'return to school' haircut and my eyebrows waxed. I start to look the Gallagher brothers (both of them) if I leave it too long. Could see it far enough
