  1. Tips on rejecting a faulty car?

    Waylander, if it is on finance then she will need to ring them and ask them to start the process (as they are the car owners). If she has bought then she needs to take back to the dealer she bought from and reject the car.
  2. My first buy to let was a London flat on the 7th floor ..... was partially furnished & tenants always paid on time. About 6 months in I received several complaints about dogs barking!! I turned up with the agent to find the tenants had 2 dalmations, they used the balcony to house them when they were at work and they had obviously been sleeping on my sofas. They didn't get any deposit back and the flat needed a good scrub I still have no idea what made them think they would get away with housing such big barky dogs without getting found out

  5. Family Holiday with Kids

    Lots of hotels do adjoining rooms now ... we just lock the "kids" bedroom from the inside and leave the do not disturb sign on permanently and we all use our door (they are only 11 and 8 so always with us). The teenagers now also get their own twin room and so far we have always had 3 rooms in a row - I knock to say we are off to brekkie but generally now leave them to it (16 & 17).

    I have heard it before, but it's still funny
  7. 17 Plate

    Cancelled my order last year as I couldn't be bothered to wait any longer and I kept looking at cabriolets. Sods law I also overtook a transporter full of them the other week so I guess mine might have been sat on the drive by now - SQ5 is staying for now, does everything and more than I need it too .... .... and I can always use Biscuits' car if I fancy a change, afterall he changes more often than me

  10. San Francisco

    We have decided to fly to SFO purely because a lot of the driving routes are closed due to snow (based on this yr) and we don't want to spend the whole holiday sat looking out of a car window! If we want to look at Yosemite we can go into from SFO and will drive into Death Valley from Vegas as a day trip as neither of us have been, do another Cirque show and Grand Canyon as a helicopter ride (I've not done) - we've both done Vegas several times now so don't need to stay any longer than we are. Did LA as a business trip and have no feelings of need to see it again yet (although I did like Santa Monica) so not bothering this time. Still not quite sure on where to stay in SFO, but have found the site above for ideas too and bought a Moon guide book which was recommended and pretty comprehensive! Seems we need to book now for NYE parties now too .....
  11. San Francisco

    Alcatraz on our list to do, not been to SF before so will need to do a few touristy bits Looks like we are flying into Vegas for a few nights, then San Francisco for 29th Dec, spend NYE there and will then hire car and do the Big Sur drive heading down for Monteroy & Cambria and a night or so up in Napa too for wine tasting and chilling, probably another night or so in SF again before heading back home. Not looking for a beach holiday so cooler weather will be welcome. If I want hippy culture I can just visit my parents ....
  12. San Francisco

    Talk to me .... hotels, must see's/do's/eat's etc etc please. Looking for NY 2017 (and a week) ...
  13. Tada!!

    looks friggin FAB .... I'd even have my next car in blue!! Soooooooo, about time we all got together (so we can see it in the dark )
  14. Wetroom Shower Taps Advice etc

    we've got the Aqualisa Digital shower, you set the temperature & press one button for the normal shower with the flexible hose and can only change to the rainshower setting by pressing another button so no mistake can really be made (and a 5 yr guarantee)
