    My good lady has a second doctors appointment tomorrow, to look at the test results, it means I can't get to my usual yoga class, but its early enough that I should have time to get a bike ride in.

    Bloody hell. Ive just googled it :eek: It seems they can kill you if you just look at them wrong. The list of things you cannot do or take while on Fenyanyl is scary.Whatever your problem is I hope it improves quickly.

    Flipping heck! Not this again.

    Pork pies need English mustard (and beer is pretty good too @Dirk but not absolutely necessary).

    Do you have the option to buy the motability car? You know how it's been driven, you know how it's been looked after - could be worth keeping mebbe?

    @Drago, don't forget you also get V.E.D., servicing , new tyres and repairs in the contract, make sure you've done your sums properly first

    If, and its a VERY BIG if, you MUST have mustard then it should be French.
    But it REALLY should be brown sauce.

    Sorry! The only acceptable accompaniment, apart from English mustard, is Piccalilli. :hungry:

    I dont know buddy. We wouldnt buy it anyway - its a decent enough drive, but its had a persistent clutch fault that has required 2 replacements, and it's already starting to judder again. It ain't Mrs D, shes an ex plod pursuit driver and very good wheel woman, and I barely drive it at all myself, and convincing Kia it even had a fault in the first place took some doing, although we finally got an acknowledgement and apology when it suddenly lost all drive at about 2000 miles old.
