    I hate not having a car - my routine is all out of sorts . It is still broken as I have been away all week so have not had the time to sort it (or rather, I am stupid and didn't get it arranged while away so that it could be done when I got back ... so I am now waiting for the garage to confirm when they can do it!). I didn't realise many garages work short or no hours on a Saturday .

    I used one of those garage comparison services online (they submit your requirements to garages to quote against) and appear to have a good price quoted earlier ... but time will tell (and now closed until Monday - while I was waiting to see if other quotes came in).

    I think I need to get it back on the road, then perhaps get rid of it as the clutch going is sign that it is perhaps time to get a different one before other major problems, but at £300+ to get it on the road it is not cheap just to then sell it on .

    I know this is a piece of string question but has anyone bought a dashcam recently - if so what do I need to look for, what criteria?

    Its one of those items that has been stuck on the wanted list for a long time

    We set off for our smaller Sada this morning in the next town further away but much easier to get to, free parking and its en route to waitrose. Then we found the road was closed and the diversion route was about 10 miles across country so we gave up and headed for home via Mortibobs for salad
    Then we were nearly broad sided by this #%}#% - he nearly drove into the side of us So we got onto the bypass and drove into town, the car behind us before eventually passing us - tailgating other cars, overtaking on double white lines, pulling out on the road-about and generally driving like an idiot.
    I don't know why we ever leave the house

    I've halved my Hovis COS loaves and put most in the freezer.

    We don't eat as much bread these days and if we do need it we can just take what we need out of the freezer.

    Em.....did you hear about that terrible accident last night with the acrobat in Spain?

    Rather annoying, my oven has just gone wrong in the middle of cooking the rolls.

    Light works, fan works, but none of the elements heat up.

    It is so hard to find out what is wrong with it, it looks like it is in demo mode but how would it switch to that in the middle of cooking, and I can't find anything about a demo mode on my oven

Very unusual for the time of year, normally when they have a heatwave it is only for a couple of days. I really don't know how anyone can work in that heat. I spent last 6 days on me lilo eating more magnums than was good for me

    See the diet is still very much on track, well done
