    Ahhhhhh. A typical automotive mechanical technicians snippet of information.
    For this information and subsequent check the price , plus VAT will be £ 173.40. This includes a multipoint check and “ free valet”.

    If they're cleaning out the wallet. They may as well clean your motor too...
    Just shake the matting & spray a bit of "cockpit shine." :wacky:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR my fellow posters!

    In the months ahead, may your blood glucose levels be totally unremarkable and may some clever guy invent some kind of immunotherapy treatment to cure T1! (Ok so maybe it's a lot to ask but we can dream can't we).

    Enjoy. Catch you on the other side.
    Urb.

    I'm not certain I should've trusted myself to change all three lancets in one go after
    • the Pepsi Max can explosion over the carpet, (now cleaned up - luckily on an already interestingly stained section of ancient carpet due for replacing sometime soon-ish)
    • the trapping of a backpack strap in the washing machine door and thus causing a minor leak (mopped up and sorted fast as I'd not moved away from the kitchen)
    • losing the bus travelcard somewhere between lunch-stop and post lunch loo stop about 5 miles walk away... and of course, the phone number to cancel it and get its replacement was impossible to find on the website, and I have a feeling they weren't open to calls today. That's now on Wednesday's list along with the prescription mishaps.
    It's probably as well I didn't decide to tackle HMRC and the annual self-assessment (I do some self-employed teaching + freelance music work) as the chances of that going well on today's showing was not high. It's usually an easy job, fortunately, but better on a different day, methinks.

    Still, remarkably, Madame BS is behaving well, didn't sulk at lunchtime chips, the new walking books had arrived whilst I was wandering about to the north of here for 14 miles or so, and the gas and electric bill wasn't as nearly bad as I thought it was going to be.

    I'm now sitting quite still, with easy food to hand, all drinks on a tray to contain potential spills, and pondering how to while away the next few hours in a gentle fashion.

    Nearly here, 2019
    Time to let go of 2018,
    Things that went wrong
    Things that broke out hearts
    Forget the grudges
    Forget the falling out's
    Look to the new year ahead
    With love and hope in your heart

    I too am wimping out and off to bed. Hope you all enjoy whatever you're doing this evening, whether it's Hogmanaying like crazy or catching up on some zzzzzz's. Here's to a happy and healthy 2019, thanks again to @Robinredbreast for giving us this brilliant thread, and to all the people on here who've been kind, helpful, interesting, and especially thanks for the laughs ;)

    Happy 2019 all! It is lovely to be awake and looking forward to the day. Pre diagnosis (5 years ago this week,) I always missed 1st January due to over indulgence the night before. Always a silver lining!
