There's a French car nutter in the Victorian town of Anglesey with the same name as your man (well, excepting the first part of the hyphenated surname). It's uncanny.

For the whites, usually nappy type stain removers will do it.

I recently bought some Dr. Beckmann stain remover from Aldi for my daughter's new white top she had spilled something down that wasn't coming out.
Didn't really expect it to work but it did and perfectly.

JIM: I am absolutely shocked that you have 2 weeks off work and not going on a package holiday to Turkey !!
A fortnight off work and you are doing exactly what you want? Are you some kind of Bohemian ? :-D

I've clearly missed the purpose of leave then lexi :lol: I'd better mend my ways and get down to the travel agents right away..

Although technically I am going overseas this week, Anglesey is across the sea isn't it?

I thought you'd tell him to embrace the holiday spirit and go for a Brazilian.

Don't forget the decaf teabags! I found that Tesco do Twinings decaf Earl Grey, and I believe that they were appreciated.

Last time I went up there was more teabags than you could ever imagine!

There can never be enough tea plus I need to keep normal tea for most of my visitors..

James, you're spot-on. I'm very partial to a cup of Twinings decaff Earl Gray :-D

Mike, be good to see you and the DRK :-D

The karate went well this afternoon. my gi has only a few grass-stains on it and no blood!

We did it in the Italian Garden at Castle Ashby

An absolutely gorgeous place and a lovely afternoon spent. I took the Activa and enjoyed a bit of an extended route back because I was enjoying the car so much despite the humming wheel bearing...

It was humming because it had forgotten the words James :)

The only way to stop it humming is to go round a right-hander and then it's totally silent..

I forget which bearing that indicates is at fault now and my brain is too addled to work it out. Can someone remind me please? Thanks :)

One would presume it's a left hand bearing, but they're weird things and those humming noises travel in some weird ways.

Jim just buy the pair and get them both done as the other will end up doing the same and go for OE so they last a fair while :)

Sent you a text as well about some other bits you may want ;)
