Morning Losers!

So it turns out my car is farked yet again. There's no power when accelerating. It struggles to get to 3,000 revs. Anyone any idea?

Quickly jumped on my bike and got over to Bury for a meeting. Then went shopping at Tesco and rode home. Not my greatest move. The milk decided to explode in the top box, so I found all my shopping swimming in a white substance.

Today, not only do I get to solder, I get a lesser-minion in to learn how to solder. Fun times.

Laters!

    Having fun there TKM!

    Today is beach, bar, beach, bar, bed - consistent!

    Today is also avoiding work as I honestly thought the current wife was going to loose it on our boat trip yesterday :(

    Matt, you could go crazy and mix things up a little by going to a beach bar. That would also save on travelling time between the two.
    Had to drive in today. Had to transport bits of the Mini to fettle. Looked like a cab driver again as I dropped the EPO off at work then had the boy and another colleague in the back that I was giving a lift to. At least I haven't got Jewish racing gold wheels though.
    Need to get myself sorted for the Ride London thing soon, apparently it's not far off now. I might change my tyres, although big fat cross tyres are more comfy. Once I've done it I'll have 2 weeks in the Tuscan sun to recover.
    Until then tea and chocolate chip cookies...

    Does it have a turbo? Possibly a hole in or split turbo hose.

    Morning all.

    Enjoyed last night with an Italian :wink: I'm off work for a week as well so happy days. Might go for a swim or a bike ride today. Swapped my rear tube yesterday before heading out for the first time in yonks and got a puncture within half hour. Pretty lame. Il have to swap it again if I wanna go out again today.

    Might just go for a swim at the pool, but I dont think it will be as nice as swimming in the sea weekend just gone.

    Laters
    :D:lol::)cooldad :shock: :? :cry:

    Afternoon twunts.

    Nothing exciting to report whatsoever, the highlight of my day is going to be a stroll down to the lake in a minute to see what's occurring, as this is the middle of nowhere I suspect the answer will be censored all :lol:

    He wouldn't have enjoyed it if he'd been with me.
    I'd have bored him stupid.

    Apparently it does. Astra CDTi. I believe it's leaking fluids. I had to refill the coolant again, so that must be escaping somewhere, though where or how quickly I don't know. I've also found a couple of oil splodges.

    Damn thing is going to end up in the scrap yard at this rate!

    Evening Gits,

    An uneventful day on the corporate hamster wheel but I'm at least pedalling home shortly and it's warm n sunny outside :) There's a bottle or rum with my name on it for when I get home.

    I had the same thing 3 years ago so I can tell you all about the way they're going to slice open your groin to fix it, and the rather unpleasant post op swelling and bruising :P
