Matt - the likelihood is I'll be bringing my 5 year old grand son with me, and the little bugger wakes up at 5a.m. on a daily basis - bets being taken that I'll be there on time :wink:

Houston, we have a problem :cry:

Holly went in and failer her MOT on Tuesday on brake and bearing related things, and as I found out on Wednesday when I woke up, a totally seized rear brake caliper and carrier.
Well, found and ordered the bits from a breaker for a reasonable price and we both hoped it'd be with my mechanic ready to fit by this morning. Job done, I thought, until I rang the mechanic this afternoon to find that everything is done except the caliper hasnae arrived yet. Spoke to the breaker, there's been a cockup with shipping and it's only gone out today :twisted: (Second cockup like that of late, ordered tickets for the football tomorrow as a birthday pressie for Dad, and they got sent to the wrong Mr. Greenaway - thankfully he's not opened them, hehe)

So, fingers crossed for tomorrow morning, else le Wilberforce will be up the proverbial creek without a paddle.
My fault for leaving things 'til the last minute I guess.

Hi Picnic Peeps,

Uhm, yeah...
Charming, that. Not a care about me, just my coffeepot :butt:

We are not happy bunny, currently. There are going to be words had, after the involvement of an auto-electrician to bypass the car alarm after I specifically told them not to lock the car from the outside as that causes a relay to stick.

Aaahhhh,

Of course the owner of the coffeepot would be missed too, (I'd have to do the BBQ myself). :lol: :lol:
(Only joking)

Sounds like strong words are needed to the garage!!!!

We'll see how it goes in the morning. I'll argue the toss about the bill when she's sorted.

Fingers crossed

Well sadly it's official...
No sign of a parcel containing the vital parts to reconstitute Holly's braking system so she's spending the weekend at the garage, and not even my "man who can" at the hire place can help on short notice :cry:

So apologies to all for leaving things to the last minute, especially Norse as I'm sure he was looking forward to getting out and about in the woods with his new toy, but no Wilberforce tomorrow :cry:

Have a good day folks,
Jim.
