2 in just over a week!? The first was my fault. Mostly. Doing a trailer separation the yellow airline got tangled somehow and snapped - or rather shattered. We couldn't find all the pieces and as it was white rather than yellow, consensus was it was time expired. Today though, all i may have done wrong was turn the key too fast? Either way the starter seems to have jammed and i'm waiting for the green flag cavalry...

Lots of strange police cars...

Originally to be posted 8-2-11!

On Saturday, I went to do a trailer swap at Stoke on Trent. Along the A50, just before Uttoxeter, I was overtaken by a black Lexus 'blue-lighting' at speed. This was immediately followed by a black Vauxhall and a black BMW. A few minutes later there was another pair of black cars 'blue-lighting'. Reaching Stoke there was even more police activity. Is this what happens when somebody 'important' passes along the way? Or just coincidence?

Dirty linen....

This is what happens when an M&S (or Next?) 'loose load' goes over speed humps (or similar) - so check what you are buying and moan like the blazes if its grubby!  Its not the store's or the driver's fault, its just a naff system :-)
