    Garages trying to rip me off

    Hi. I run an old car that I've owned for over a decade now.Its my daily transport and I'm quite sentmentalay attached to. Its in remarkable condition for it's age and it's now bordering classic status. As you can imagine it takes a bit of looking after considering it's age and parts are often...

    Worst Christmas Present.

    SIL has surpassed herself this year. Not quite as bad as a singing mug she bought me once, but just got a small bottle of hot mango sauce. I don't have sauces. It will either go in the bin, or I'll pass it to my sister's hubby as he loves hot sauce.

    Merry Christmas Everyone.

    I think Santa's been. He left the bottle of whisky out. Hold on that might have been me.

    Christmas Eve Ride !

    Now this is how you start a four-day holiday weekend. Out of the house at 9:30am and on the trails by 10. We had a light dusting of snow and freezing temps (23 degrees / -5 Celsius). I haven't put the studs on this bike yet, but they are on the fat bike already. So, we will play it safe and not...

    Do or did your kids/grand kids believe in Father christmas?

    As an official old fart I don't think I ever believed in 'him' as being real. Never taught my kids he was real. Just wondering about other's views.

    Dreaming of a white Christmas?

    Looking unlikely here now, despite the forecast just a few days ago. Weather experts on the radio were just saying it's more likely the further north you live. Well, that's why they are experts, who would have thought that snow in the UK is more likely further north? :laugh: P.S. A REAL white...

    Christmas Trees - How do you do yours?

    I don't know whether it is a family thing or whether there is a North / South divide when it comes to decorating a Christmas Tree. Growing up we always had tinsel, baubles and coloured lights. Now that I live down South we follow my wife's family traditions which include a ban on Tinsel, and...

    Christmas presents you'd really like to receive

    I am sure most of you have everything you would ever need. But what sort of things would you really like to receive on Christmas day? Some nice Park Tools, expensive Goretex rain jackets, Books, Wine, Whisky. Hit me with your wishes. I might even add some of them to my letter to Santa

    Christmas day meal at the pub/restaurant. Anyone go?.

    I am always amazed at the prices people are willing to pay for xmas day meals at the pub etc. £65/75 upwards for a pub meal I really understand some people have real reasons** but the pubs are full on the day. ** I know a lady that lost her husband, could not face cooking, so took 8 of the...

    You know it's nearly Christmas when..

    For me it used to be the smell from the Sugar Beet factory on a cold crisp morning. Now it seems to be when the brushes wear out in the washing machine!.

    Christmas dinner in a can

    Heinz have brought out their answer to Christmas shortages. Their Big Soup contains turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy. All for 1.50. Anyone tempted to partake of this feast on Christmas Day?

    Keeping a homemade Christmas pudding till next year

    The Mrs made her pud back in September but we didn’t have it over Christmas. Will it keep till next year? The recipe states that it will keep for a year, will an extra 3 months make a difference? It’s covered in grease proof paper and a muslin cloth, I thought about putting it in an air tight...
