happy new year fella's.
I was working, but I'm having a couple of beers now.
Best wishes to all for 09.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Fell asleep on the couch about half nine after a day dicking about getting to the hospital and back for an out patients appointment ( did I mention our 2 week old Zafira is dead?, no? Oh well its currently siting on the drive all nice and Fubar whilst trying to set itself on fire every time its switched on - the dealer? Dont mention the dealer - cant take it back before the 6th of Jan - so booked it in with another Network Q agent tomorrow)

Currently also suffering with tonsilitis and taking some gram +ve antibiotics I found in the cupbord hoping that they will take the edge off it. Wife woke me up about 11 and I went to bed and hd a sh1t night due to throat and pain in arm from some nerve conduction tests they did on my thumb ( deadder than a can of spam) and the fact I still have to wear this bloody awful long arm cast for another 4 weeks.

Wished the wife happy new year about 2.30am when the carbon monoxide detector went off due to the batteries having died, bloody "peep" every 2 minutes - it is curerently doing sterling work in the garden as in my sleep lagged state I could not get the battery cover off, s it went out the window ( I aimed it at something soft and will recover it later once I have had a bath). Why do fugging alarms always choose 2am to have the batteries crap out?

2008? Utter arseflakes. Bring on 2009, Im waiting with a pickaxe handle, first sign of any grief and I will rip its nipples off.

Happy new year one and all

I guess my day wasnt that bad after all.

just after 10am went off to a road accident didnt get back until gone 3pm, campervan with swedish family on a trip of a lifetime had a crash that claimed the life of the Father. Not my nicest start to a New Year and my thoughts are with the family.

I think I can answer that one :lol: because at about 2am the house temp falls thus the battery voltage drops, hence, ping! :lol:

As for the rest of your ailments, it's just old age coming on. :oops:



Trust me I know :lol:

It was like Sarejevo here last night with the intensity of fireworks being let off out in the street. After an hour I couldn't even see the other side of the street for smoke (though my eyesight was already a bit wonky). The pets didn't enjoy it much though.

Lovely weather here today - bright sun on snow. Now dark and parky, nothing for it but to continue as 2009 started with a few beers and let my system adjust to the huge change! Should be right by about Monday.. week :D

Let's have a picture of your railway layout then Ken. Have you got an APT125? The one that was meant to tilt. Or are you more of a steam guy? I bought a 16v gearbox off a bloke last year who lived in a world of Märklin model railways - he very kindly showed me his collection and layout in the loft. I used to always go the model engineer exhibitions in London every year - fascinating!

Just APT, not 125 ( that was the inter city 125) - Now worth seroius wedge if you have the set in the original box with bernard cribbins flexi-disc. I should know, I flogged mine when I got maried for £50 to discover it was worth 4 times that amount when I discovered eBay.
