I suspect there will be tears and tantrums from her sister as she can't afford one due to being a college and then heading to Uni - No I'm not sticking my hand in my pocket for rent and a car...

    I sensibly accompanied said daughter on her journey home leaving my car at the garage to be collected later...


    ...this is when the fun started

    gandy took me to the garage and parked right across the front of my car.

    gandy: How do I get out of the car park?
    Me: Just back up so I can get out then you can follow me?
    gandy: eh?
    Me: <somewhat perplexed> just back up then I can get out and you can follow me
    gandy: I don't reverse anywhere!
    Me: You've only got to move back 6 foot then follow me, at which point I jump out and get into my car

    gandy drives forward 6 foot

    I pull up inches behind her and wait for her to pull out of my way...I wait...she waits...I wait...she moved forward 1ft...I pull up...she waits...eventually she pulls out of the way so I can get past her so she can follow me around the one way system to get out of the car park.

    There was a frank exchange and scornful looks from gandy as I drove off

    Apparently, asking someone to move back 6 foot is not a clear instruction

    It bloody cost me dinner as well

    Women are quite lovely but don't ever forget or be fooled into thinking they have minds of their own, it always leads to drama

    Was it because he didn't use any commas?

    I've put some bigger wheels and some bracing on the bandsaw, gathered another pile of shite to go to the tip tomorrow, accidentally opened a cut on left index finger , twatted the end of right index finger and given up on the day in a fit of cold hands/arthritic hands/cackhanded hands and strop. Rock n roll...

    I had my first tinkering session with my new (to me) landrover today. Manage to nip out of the house whilst the kids were having their post lunch nap to do a non essential job which should take about 30 minutes.

    My wife came out to see 'how I was getting on' about 4 hours later and to announce that it was my turn to entertain the kids so that she could get on with one of her projects.

    So 4 hours later most of my knuckles are skinned, I've got a grazed wrist and I still had to bodge the fekkin' thing back together so that I can use it during the week and then fix it properly next weekend.

    I've waited years to have another landrover, and within days I remember what it was like the last time. Sodding things. I love it.

    Has been a funny old weekend...

    No1 daughter has moved in on a permanent basis after a major falling out with her <insert your own adjectives> mother. Her mother is unrepentant and has basically said not to move back in. So instead of furtling and fettling in the garage, it has been a stressful time of sorting out a new wardrobe to make her feel "at home".

    I'm revelling in the fact that the ex wife paid for the wardrobe but is oblivious to that as I've discounted from the maintenance which she no doubt expects me to maintain...

    Thankfully, gandy has been the voice of reason throughout the entire process, I suspect she is rather enjoying the daughter being here

    Reminds me of the Christmas where my wife asked me to get something that will make her look beautiful.
    So I bought myself a bottle of whiskey.
