Thanks all for the great advice
I'm on the Activa yogurts Will but they don't seem to help me walking around corners!
I love those Benecol Yogurt drinks. I could get hooked on those!!!
Had a great day yesterday: Took the kids to Thorpe Park
We were there from the time the park opened until it closed 8)
It was good until I got home to a desparate messge from Dad. Mum is getting worse with her Alzheimers and dad is having a lot of difficulty coping. I've had to come down to Somerset in some rush and may be down here a few days whilst we sort out a bit of respite care for her to give dad a break and look to see what the future holds.
I was not happy on Saturday. I went to swap the wheels between the 2.1TD and V6 as the 2.1TD has new tyres on it. All would have been good if I could have actually got the wheels off the 2.1TD
The tyre place, which came highly recommended by a number of people, had done the studs up so tightly I had a trouble undoing them with a 3 foot breaker bar. The worst part was that the locking wheelnut key is shattered to smithereens after attempting to undo a one locking stud.
What were they thinking of? Those wheelstuds must be done up to about 250 ft lbs at least. It's dangerous as if I had a puncture, there would be no way a wheel could be changed either by me or a breakdown outfit. Recovery on a flatbad would be the result and all because of an incompetent operator who does not understand rattle gun torque settings or the safety implications of massively overtightening alloy wheels.
When I get back home the company is going to get a right rocket from me and a demand to remove the locking studs without wheel damage, replace the studs with new ones, repair any other damage and compensate me for a car which is now unusable
Either that or I'll see them in court; I am that angry with them
Needless to say, that is the very last time I preset a complete car for new tyres. In future they'll just get wheels
