Re: HEEEEEEELP!!!!!

The D9's are renowned for electrical faults, check under the front carpets for a couple of connectors; these can be prone to corrosion, also check the condition of the earth straps in the engine bay.

I don't think my car will be too happy on it, it's got the Mitsubishi direct injection petrol engine. Bugger!

Re: Welly's Boiler woes

Good result Welly!
We had a Wickes boiler at our last place and I had to replace the diaphragm in the DHW flow switch and the microswitch that triggered the CH. Very satisfying when you can fix them yourself! (No I would never touch the gas side :supafrisk: )

A plant. Used in herbal medicine and also homeopathy.

Anti-inflammatory, and for reduction of bruising.
Yep, I've only seen it as a homeopathic remedy, my wife used it before and after her last two ops and it really sped up the recovery time.

Re: Umbilical Hernia

All the best Trem, the recovery time after keyhole surgery is pretty speedie, they usually do it as day surgery.
Get yourself some arnica, it sounds a bit hippie but it does help with the healing.

Re: Cost of running a house!

Monthlies:

Rent £1095
Council tax £194
Gas £99
Elec £55
Water £19
Virgin BB/TV/Phone Average about £75
Contents insurance £8

Credit cards - won't go there!

We do get child tax credits which makes a huge difference, it pays for the food which with 3 sprogs can be quite a lot!
