    I paid for one about a year ago for one of the brexit deadlines and never used it, going on holiday in March so will probably need to go through it again.

    If you are going to an EU country that requires a 1968 variant then it lasts 3 years anyway. I did same as you before travelling to Holland last year .
    Regardless of confusion of UK gov…[Read more]

  • Got all mine from Victorian Plumbing, set up a trade account for further discount.
    All the bathroom stuff, plus radiators . Courier dropped off next day (about £30 delivery I think ). Website easy to use , and tells you what’s in stock

    I’ve got Enfields in current up and over. Temporary measure before fitting side opening security door.
    I’d save your money on the Asgard and spend on decent ground anchor and chain, I expect locksmith might be able to fit if you are unable to. If the current concrete isn’t thick enough (would have thought it would be at least 150mm ) then you c…[Read more]

    You would be better off putting it outside the garage. Where people can see them breaking into it.
    Thing is, once they are in the garage, they can shut the door , and within reason make as much noise as they want breaking into it. Who’s going to know. Unless you have a nosey neighbour, they are just going to assume you are out in your garage.

  • @revs You might struggle with that now.

    I was working at the Waitrose in Teignmouth just before Christmas….. transforming it into a new Lidl store.

    Excellent, now I can have 90 mins free parking when I take the kids to the skate park 😉

    They are changing the one in Torquay to a Lidl too. Obviously not the right demographic for Waitrose in t…[Read more]

  • I use the Waitrose car park in Teignmouth to park whilst shopping in town.
    The sign there says the car park is for use of Waitrose customers only.
    As I am a Waitrose customer , with a bone-fide Waitrose card and everything , I feel I am entitled to park there.
    If I get challenged by the parking attendant, then I would proudly say, I am a…[Read more]

  • Shoplifting is rife down here in Torquay. On several occasions , whilst in sports direct ( yeah , yeah I know that’s a crime in itself 😁), I have watched guys stuffing stuff up their tops, in their bags etc. I just told the guy on the door what they had done, and left it up to them to sort out. None of my business ? Perhaps ? It just pisses me o…[Read more]

  • Looks like it starts 23 Feb. It’s been a while.
    Seems like most of the main characters are in it too.

  • Ffs Boris, keep our military out of this **** storm in the making.

    Would have probably been better if he’d stayed drinking vodka in the Caribbean 😉

    And finished by 2pm

    Usually finished by 1.30 and spend last half hour congregated by the fence 😉

  • But isn’t the Monday the 4th day, with statutory sick pay kicking in ?

    SSP is paid when the employee is sick for at least 4 days in a row (including non-working days). You start paying SSP from the fourth ‘qualifying day’ (day an employee is normally required to work). The first 3 qualifying days are called ‘waiting days’.< …

  • Quite handy if you need to see a doctor over there. Wife was feeling unwell and managed to see a GP within an hour of phoning mid morning….
    Try that at home 😉

  • revs1972 replied to the topic Definition of swimming…..? in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    Having heard various stories in the past regarding pool pumps and accidents / fatalities, why cant there be an emergency stop button located near to the pool ( behind breakable glass etc).

  • revs1972 replied to the topic PSA Tenda Mesh for £60 in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    Do you know the difference between the MW3 and MW5 (which is a tenner more ?)

  • Technically true for 4G (as it has no voice in the standard) but would indicate the bloke was about as clued in as a finger of fudge!

    It sounded good at the time 😁
    Although he was the same bloke who, when i was buying a new phone, was trying to sell me insurance . Told me a new screen was £450 , yet the piece of paper in front of me stated it…[Read more]

  • revs1972 replied to the topic Vehiclehiretrackworld in the forum Chat Forum 3 weeks ago

    You would like to think they would tell you the speed limits when you hire it, but then again they would miss out on their “admin fee” when your speeding ticket comes through 😜

  • I think the technologies they use to get the signal are different. Something about Cat7 signals. I went with the Huawei B535 router as you can plug an external aerial into it if needs be. I spoke to what seemed a clued up bloke in our local Three shop when deciding. It’s a data sim and, as far as I know ,does not carry call signals, thus using i…[Read more]

  • i looked into this a while ago and wanted to try a three wifi jobbie, but i got as far as experimenting with tethering my phone to try and watch netflix on the tv, it kept freezing so i got no further

    I am using the three wifi router in the new house whilst it’s being renovated. It’s got 3 blink cameras running on it, and I use it for wat…[Read more]

    Complete waste of money. The kid cried, we heard him, the kid screamed we heard him, when the kid coughed we heard him without the monitor.

    Pointless landfill tat.

    We spent the first 7 weeks of our eldest’s life in hospital with him wired up to a monitor for most of it. Towards the end of the stay he was in a cot with a monitor and sensor p…[Read more]
