  • bobby replied to the topic Rising/lateral damp in the forum Chit chat 6 years, 4 months ago

    why not take a builder with you to have a look and advise. Certainly damp would never ever put me off buying a place (this one had rising, falling, dry rot, wet rot) if it had that certain something. Dam can normally be solved and a trusted builder will look at it and tell you why its likley to be there. Is it lower than the ground round it, is…[Read more]

  • @ester We didn’t, just employee a new one and they contacted old one and got the paperwork from them directly. We went through two in quick succession which I was worried looked bad, but have been with current one for a number of years.

    Limited v sole trader depends on how much your turnover is. We started out as sole trader, then went limited. W…[Read more]

  • When I first got a rabbit and he lived outside, I had his run on stable matting, as the concrete was too abrasive.

    They do need a big (covered) run as they need lots of space to play. If you do want them outside, having a shed with an adjoining run is a good set up.

    Mine quickly became a house rabbit, and its so lovely to see them run and play.…[Read more]

  • bobby replied to the topic UK most obese in Europe in the forum Chit chat 6 years, 5 months ago

    Most people have no idea how many calories they are consuming, and what those calories are made of. Sugar and salt are extremely yummy, added to carbohydrate and its addictive.
    If you go into a supermarket just look at the proportion of the shelves are made up of high calories low nutrition foods, yes you have to make the choice to eat them but…[Read more]

    The modern lifestyle pays a hug role exercise is no longer essential for survival for loads of people add people who don’t know how to cook those who do and cook to much there’s a long list of things driving this thorny problem .
    I think public policy plays a huge role the NHS will be charge of you mantra has permeated the Brian’s of many people…[Read more]

    I had a brief glimpse of the world wide table on the news – odd thing is many of the English speaking countries top the list, USA (natch) Canada, Australia, NZ and us. Have we all been colonised by MacDonalds et al?

  • I think you need to seek legal advice, as your tenant has moved/moving out and the agreement was with them. If they are not giving notice their bond should cover some of the notice period. If the boyfriend stays that may become a different sort of agreement, and you do not want a shorthold running six months from now.Depending on what your legal…[Read more]

  • I go swimming and I auto drive myself there. If I am there I will go, if I dont even get there I wont go. Lots of salads with veggies like green beans, broad beans. kidney beans they make up so much fibre and take so long to eat. Hot salads are fantastic but they are also great cold.

  • bobby replied to the topic NHS spending in the forum Chit chat 6 years, 6 months ago

    I do think they need to be a little better at spending…i was reading an article on wasted time for calls outs (999 ones) and this one lady phones at least 9 times a day, and gets an ambo or first responder cause “one time she may actually need it” shes clearly got some mental issue…so instead of spending £400 for every time they have to go to…[Read more]

  • i’d withdraw too. not worth annoying an existing injury. Have you chatted to a physio about level of work you should be doing? With your injuries I would imagine runnign would be very jarring and could be making things work.

  • Used to work for fire prevention dept in the NHS. Little black beetles called thrips used to set the alarms off regularly. Is it the time of year or them? sometimes seem to get them when its muggy and thundery

  • Thank you for this, after posting I felt guilty about how I felt about her, and a tad disloyal! Oh dear.

    Yes I think I WILL have to be specific and not woolly about future arrangements; that was the problem this time I think, plus I know she is dealing with a lot of changing things in her life right now and does look to me as a kind of Guru as it…[Read more]

  • Firstly let me say that it is safe to assume that the person who I’m grousing about won’t read this, as she isn’t horsey……… not yet anyway (working on it!!).

    Sorry, a bit long.

    OK so a good friend came to stay with me recently. We’ve known each other about 20 years, met through work and then stayed friends when we’d both moved on to other…[Read more]

  • I am frankly gobsmacked that she said that your colleague should prescribe for you! We did have a medic who could and did, prescribe for the team, but this was because she was part time with us and part time GP! I do wonder if some of the problem/hostility you are receiving, is in part because you are “in the business”

  • bobby replied to the topic Drilling steel? How? in the forum Chit chat 6 years, 7 months ago

    I’ll have a go at sharpening them tomorrow. I’ve just ordered some colbalt ones as well. Thank you!

  • bobby replied to the topic Drilling steel? How? in the forum Chit chat 6 years, 7 months ago

    They probably arent sharp enough. The old bolts are stuck, especially now I’ve angle grinded the top and bottom of them, so they’ve melted in place for want of a better word. They were already pretty stuck though. But the new holes are going an inch over from them so not conflicting.

    How on earth do you sharpen a drill bit??

  • I am at an absolute loss with this now! I’m renovating a trailer. I dismantled it down to the frame and am slowly putting it back together. I want to put the floor down now. Its cut to shape and drilled ready to be bolted down. The problem is I cant drill into the steel frame to put the bolts through. I had to angle grind the old bolts out and…[Read more]
