There are some fantastic clifftop trails round about there, especially St Anthony’s Head opposite St Mawes, I’d try that on the cross. The roads round about there are winding wee lanes with nowhere to go if you meet anything head on, I’d go off-road. Or down to the Plume of Feathers.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Volkswagon Tourans – any good?
Yes, we have the 2.0tdi engine sport, not too sluggish and handles well for what it is. I really like it as much as you can for a wee people carrier but it does suffer the known vw faults, water pump replaced but foc by vw. Egr also failed but easy to replace. I’d take a touran from a known source for £1k without hesitation.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
I would not consider the risk of falling especially high on those stairs, just because they aren’t to current regs doesn’t instantly make them dangerous. If I was doing a risk assessment on them I may note for improvement at some point but not urgently though I’d probably highlight the treads for the visually impaired.
I think there is a tendency to forget that everyone has a personal duty of care, sorry for the op’s other half but if she’d been a bit more careful the accident may well not have happened.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post

Reply to: Seat Leon ST FR – Any experiences?
I tested the ST FR against the golf & octavia estates and the preferred the ST-handled the best, looks good, boot was a good size- as with the golf it has a false floor which drops to give you more room. The finish is a lot more similar to Vw than older seats though not as much silver bits as Vw or Audi. I would definitely go for the technology pack with led lights, they do a good job. Wasn’t as nippy as I was expecting but the engine hadn’t been run in yet.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
Ross & Liddell should have contacted you directly to let you know your flat had a leak, and should have been able to send someone to turn a valve off in the stair, I’d be holding them partly responsible as well. Afraid to say there are few decent factors out there, they’re as bad as each other.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Should I try motor biking?
Loved my bikes, rode for 20 years with no accidents by riding defensively and not pushing things too far. At 27 with no kids I never gave it a second thought but years down the line and as the sole earner in the house with young children the cbr was sold last year. When they’re self sufficient I will quite likely get another.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Snow problem
If they hit you with breach of h&s I would definitely recommend them to do one. Risk assessment only required when there is a significant risk and as appropriate for a snowball fight as for a game of conkers. Anyone willingly participating accepted any risk involved by default, and any injuries hardly took place during work. You unfortunately seem to have a few chancers at your place!Posted 4 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Dodgy property letting agent ?
The flat downstairs should claim for this on their own insurance, any payment you make is goodwill only. The letting agents may well operate a maintenance company in another name and they know if they go through their own insurers that the work could go elsewhere.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post

Reply to: Rome – aside from the obvious
Evening meal in the Trastevere lanes, does not get any better! Imo all the usual sights are all stunning, Roman forum one of my favourites. If you have the time then jump on the train to Orvieto, only about an hour or so and well worth going to- wee tour of Umbria, amazing church and of course some local refreshments! Trevi fountain beautiful, Spanish steps nice but you will get constantly pestered to buy flowers.Posted 5 years ago | Go to post
Now that’s a greenhouse. Great to see a building like that being maintained with care and effort instead of money just being thrown at contractors to get the job done, always intrigued to hear what project is going on nextPosted 5 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: British Gas Hive, any experiences?
Looked at it too but at the time three were reportedly reliability issues with the app. Ended up installing a programmable thermostat which has been great, once set up I’ve never had to adjust so wouldn’t have neededto use the hive controls via the app anyway.
The hive won’t help with heating different parts of the house, use the radiator trv’s for that or look at zoning the system so you can heat the ground floor only.Posted 5 years ago | Go to post

Not sure how much interest the HSE will take in wet floor signs & soap at sinks, I’d like to think they’re addressing higher level risk. Sepa for general waste but LA for air pollution, you can check on sepa’s site to see if they have necessary exemptions, if they are putting coshh through waste water then business stream, trade eflluent authorisation will be required.Posted 5 years ago | Go to post
