You'll be lucky for Saturday as well judging by the forecast.
You will need to drown your sorrows in more Whisky :ROFLMAO:
They’ve booked us onto the 3.30, but the Premier Inn we should have been reaching at 7pm is now looking like 1am, or more likely we scrap it and book somewhere else.

Virgin Media. Got a new deal and new kit. “Doesn’t matter when you set it up as long as it’s by the 8th of October”.

Just got a text in the B&B; “We have just activated your new box. You MUST set this equipment up in the next 12 hours”.

That won’t be happening then. 🙄🤬🤬🤬

blimey, they are keen! 2 to 2.5 yeh maybe, although with winter coming etc i can see maybe why. But probably just pure speculation and expect a lot of people see it and are scared into buying! after all, 3.5mm of tyre tread doesnt sound much.

The amount of times there's a 50-50 chance and yet 90% of the time I choose wrong!!

Rowing blades - so often and my brain doesn't compute.
Changing bedding - Super King which is "almost" square...mattress protector wrong, fitted sheet wrong (so 100% wrong). Grrrr....

at least it gives you the chance to blame your better half

i was having a discussion about the incident in the England v India Womans cricket and this bozo went off about imperialism and that we were all racists, murderers and thiefs.

I might have called this person as "cave dwelling goat f**ker"
Seems a fair response

Been looking forward to a takeaway all day while the wife is out. Skipped lunch and everything. Delivery arrives well within the hour. Just dishing up and the bell goes, it’s next door collecting a package. Returned to the kitchen to find our divvy of a dog tucking into a cheese and tomato garlic bread he’d pulled to the floor.

He got the food and you didn’t; who’s the divvy here… 🤔 🤣🤣

Car indicators/signals...just do away with them.
The number of people who use them properly is staggeringly low, the number that don't use them at all is higher and the number that use them incorrectly is vast..utterly depressing...

Apps on my phone regularly asking me to sign in, despite the fact I continually use biometrics and Samsung Pass to hold my credentials. I can only remember a set number of passwords!

Hose pipe ban still in force. As an amateur car detailer, having the Audi as dirty as it is after 2 months of no jet washing is starting to grate. And no, a bucket wash is not the answer 😄
Williams Waterless Wash and Wax (4 x 1 L) + 2 x Triggers https://amzn.eu/d/hwudeL0

I bought some of that last week and used it today.
My car was awful and, also as I'm an amateur car detailer, I was utterly sceptical.
I'm now utterly gobsmacked ........................ this stuff really works!!
I have an average sized 5dr and reckon one bottle will do my car at least six times.
I also did the windows inside, much of the interior trim and the wheels.
The wheels really caught me out because they came up soooooooo much better than I was expecting!
I did, however, get through half a dozen microfibre cloths.
I reckon it cost me about £1 of product and the thick end of an hour.
Very, very pleased.
Oh, and no swirls!

Amazing isn't it. I bought a job lot of clothes to just do the car quickly every now and then. I don't overly care about the dirt because of roads I drive so just a quick clean. Really gets it up nicely
