    I just had some major auto repairs: $1200. Major bummer. At least the truck is paid off.

    The downstairs toilet cistern is knackered now and on wednesday I had to kick the living room door in because the catch fucked up in the barrel and to top it all off the string has snapped on my fucking Sthill saw.

    Last night the missus spotted the neighbour gardening and mentioned how I could be doing ours while I am about the house:lol:

    The water rates and the Council tax bills have both come at the same time:eek:I might have to drink myself into a good fettle:cool:As soon as I get my van back of course.

    Not particularly Jillian, but the weekend is here now and I have just gotten the van back and it was a paltry £50.

    It was the immobiliser, I got them to bypass it altogether, I didn't want to start ripping wires out or it would have never moved again, I can build a house but.:cool:

    I can fix the door myself and the saw but I will have to get one of my plumber mates for the cistern.Don't worry we aren't all pissing in a bucket just yet we have another lavvy upstairs.
