If you do make it to Garys, let him know we've not barred him from the site, he is allowed to visit and post occasionally.  Wink
Unfortunaley no pick-up or drop off there..
Had to go get the Van.. or should I say truck.. DAF 150 Y reg. Slow or what.. Cry
1st pick-up was Helston.. not ready and no call to arrange for fuel.. finally left abot 12.30.
Then over to Lee-Mills , Devon to drop off.... caught in traffic all the way along south cost.
Then up to Illminster, then Axminster... finally back to Lee Mills to drop off.. with 2 cages for Redruth collected.
Finally get to Redruth 9.30pm ..home at 9.55. Not bad seeing as I started at 9am. Undecided

Todays toakes me to my own store & fuel up.. then to Penzance, St.Austell, Exeter,Honiton & back to Exeter..
I can see me changing that as 2 drops at Exeter... if I'm not collecting I'll go from St.Austell straight to Honiton and drop off on way home.. can use A30 for final run then..
Last night driving back along A38 from Lee Mills was real fun.. up,down bending all the time and not one street light..  Tongue
Oh.. top speed.. 64mph downhill. otherwise just 50-55mph.

Managed to get quite a lot of units changed so far in just a few days, kitchen is a mess though but still usable.  The end price is critical of course though, �82 for units, �5 ceramic sink (not counting the �10 I paid for one a few weeks earlier--it was cracked grr!)�18 for screws and plasterboard, �35 for caulk, Impact adhesive and screws, �6 for contact, �11 white silicone, �17 Roller Blind, �15 for paint..............My time and talent............Priceless Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Still to get, worktop, �31 for taps, �10 for worktop (Duropal 4.1 m), �41 for new extractor, �5 extractor pipe, �28 plus 160 miles in pinky for dishwasher, should have most if not all of the fittings Grin

Pics on the way soon of both the old and the new soon.

I finally got flash working well in Ubuntu Linux. Took another browser to do it but at last no more stealing my laptop to watch the latest episode of whatever.

Just in time for Ubuntu 9.1 to be released breaking everything again no doubt Tongue Sticking with it though and seriously tempted to install it in more stuff as more old creaky Windows break Grin

Also tempted by Windows 7 but not by it's prices

This week has been even longer, been stuffed with flu, aches, pains everywhere Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed  You can tell by my lack of posting, no doubt.  It is going to take a few more days to get back to form.
I've still managed to rip out all the old kitchen and put in the new, ran out of money though with the worktop and extractor still to get Undecided
Using old worktop still, does the job for now.
Hope you're all keeping well, looking forward to being back to normal, soonish! Undecided

Got the worktop in MK last night at last, for �10, great bargain, its 4.1 meter's long and the lady gave me the other bits left over so I got enough to finish it............Guess what I'm doing today Smiley
Keep an eye on the earlier post about this............especially if you want to know just how cheap a kitchen can be re-fitted at.  Mr Brown and co wont get much tax out of me for this Grin Grin

Good... the coffers must be over full as they insist on giving illegals free housing a food, instead of the US & Aussie approach of just booting them back out.
When is Brown going?  As I still don't remember ever having the chance to vote him in as PM.


Good to hear you're up and about again Tom... you might just get the kitchen done in time from christmas. Wink
