  2. [quote user="marmite"]Just turn the appliance around the other way.

    [/quote]

    I tried that one, couldn't get the washing in the machine.

  3. Thanks for the heads up. My drill is marked NF.

    I will make sure that I put the drill into reverse, when I want it to go forward, forewarned is forearmed.

  4. [quote user="Pickles"][quote user="derf"](Quoting Quillan)"I know it's a slight change in subject but you are also required to keep a spare set of bulbs and fuses in your car."

    I don't think this is true.

    You could be fined for having a blown bulb, but if you able to replace it immediately when stopped, you may get away with it.[/quote]

    (My bold) Which pretty much requires instant access to bulbs, ergo you need a bulb kit ... (?)

    It may be sensible, but it's not a requirement, unlike the breathalyser and gilet.

  5. "I know it's a slight change in subject but you are also required to keep a spare set of bulbs and fuses in your car."

    I don't think this is true.

  6. You can try THIS company, but my advice is to use a new email account just for this, they seem to spam you forever after you have had the quote.

  7. [quote user="Keni"]

    No sell by date on the ones I've seen Deb.

    Also we've been told that initially there will be the usual checking on all vehicles followed by indifference - as with the high vis jackets.

    [/quote]

    They require a valid use by date to be legal.

  8. "In any event they seem fairly cheap and if its like the triangle and

    Hi-Vis waistcoats they will never see the light of day from the pocket

    in the boot"

    The testers will have to see the light of day at sometime, to check the use by date and for replacement.[:)]

  9. Although, lot's of people do register their vehicles without being resident, the official version is no.

    "You can only register a car in the country where you normally live   or have permanent residence.

    You cannot   register your car in a country where you have a secondary residence or holiday house."

  10. WHO IS

    JACK  SCHITT?

    For

    some time many

    of us have

    wondered just

    who is Jack

    Schitt?

    We find

    ourselves at a

    loss when

    someone says,

    'You don't

    know Jack

    Schitt'!
     

    Well, thanks

    to my

    genealogy

    efforts, you

    can now

    respond in an

    intellectual

    way.

    Jack Schitt is

    the only son

    of Awe

    Schitt.   Awe

    Schitt, the

    fertilizer

    magnate, who

    married O.

    Schitt, the

    owner of

    Needeep N.

    Schitt, Inc.
       They

    had one son,

    Jack.

    In turn, Jack

    Schitt married

    Noe Schitt. 

    The deeply

    religious

    couple

    produced six

    children:

    Holie Schitt,

    Giva Schitt,

    Fulla Schitt,

    Bull Schitt,

    and the twins

    Deep Schitt

    and Dip

    Schitt.

    Against her

     parents'

    objections,

    Deep Schitt

    married Dumb

    Schitt, a high

    school

    dropout.  

    After being

    married 15

    years, Jack

    and Noe Schitt

    divorced. 

    Noe Schitt

    later married

    Ted Sherlock,

    and because

    her kids were

    living with

    them, she

    wanted to keep

    her previous

    name. She was

    then known as

    Noe Schitt

    Sherlock.

    Meanwhile, Dip

    Schitt married

    Loda Schitt,

    and they

    produced a son

    with a rather

    nervous

    disposition

    named Chicken

    Schitt. Two of

    the other six

    children,

    Fulla Schitt

    and Giva

    Schitt, were

    inseparable

    throughout

    childhood and

    subsequently

    married the

    Happens

    brothers in a

    dual

    ceremony. 

    The wedding

    announcement

    in the ne

    wspaper

    announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.

    The

    Schitt-Happens

    children were

    Dawg,  Byrd,

    and Horse.

    Bull Schitt,

    the prodigal

    son, left home

    to tour the

     world. 

    He recently

    returned from

    Italy  with

    his new

    Italian bride,

    Pisa Schitt.

    Now when

    someone says,

    'You don't

    know Jack

    Schitt', you

    can correct

    them.

    Sincerely,

    Crock O.

    Schitt

  11. "I am assuming that either there was no verification in place or your place is 100m2 and uninsulated Wink [;-)]"

    That's correct.

  12. Mine was delivered free the next day, that was using the online Npower link as given earlier, after using the calculator,  inputing zero for existing insulation and going for the max m2 of 99. It gives 21 rolls @100mm & 26 rolls @170mm for a total depth of 270mm.

    You end up going to the "Build Centre" website to complete the order, but you can phone them instead of using their cra**y website.

  13. "to try and get an affordable deal for a trip to the UK possibly with my big trailer if there is any cheap insulation left."

    I had 47 rolls delivered this week, the driver told me, they just could not get rid of it, seems no one wants to pay £1 a roll.[:D]
