    Car still not back another major problem found .

    Is it just my experience that garages say it will be ready by lunchtime and they will call, they invariably don't and then when you chase them late afternoon they have bad news - which they cannot sort today .

    Anon, might be worth posing on the motoring thread, or pistonheads to ask if anyone can recommend a good garage within your area? (Dont mention you go to Hellfords though or the pickforks will come out! )

Fingers crossed for rain tomorrow xx

    I've just spent an hour trying to find out why candy lives and requests aren't getting through to me I've either been booted off or something wrong, I'm hoping it's something wrong that can be sorted out.

    Anyone here that gets lives from me? Have you had any today? Just checking that it's working one way at least xx
