Re: HMO or Lodgings

I think that is were it got a bit fuzzy - it was the sons family home - so whilst he did not own it - it was where he had always lived. From the little I know HMOs seem to be cold and clinical and purely a business - whilst the premise for this scenario was that son stayed at home but shared with a ...

HMO or Lodgings

Recent discussion with pals raised a question with lodgers and HMOs. A friends son had been in living in a house with two pals for over a year, the house was owned by the parents of one of the pals. The three pals shared all the bills and it was all very amicable. For arguments sake does this arrang...

Car Windsceen

I have a chip in the windscreen however before I seek out someone to mend this I want to know about all the other tiny nibbles the windscreen has. None are in my direct vision that I notice - the new chip is a small back blob on the periphery. Our roads here though meant that the windscreen notched ...

Re: Tyres

I am sure you are all wanting to hear the update! Tyre down a wee a bit but not showing as a warning and drove the the garage fine. I was told that there was 'something' in there and was close to where it was not repairable. Once some said that really I should not be inflating so often I remembered ...

Re: Tyres

Thanks Paul - I think it must be me! It definitely goes into the cigarette lighter as the the diagram shows the ciggie lighter coming out and this bit to go in,though in truth its a 12V marked hinged lid. The silver bits that get squeezed to insert it into the aperture are very small - less than 1cm...

Re: Tyres

I have just spent an age trying to get the end of the compressor into the 12V thing. How on earth does it go in. The now defunct one I had used in the past just pushed home by pushing in the two silver bits. On this one the two silver bits are tiny and there are also two black bits - so it looks lik...

Re: Tyres

Sounds like a slow puncture or leaky valve. Or if you've had this problem since the tyre was fitted, I suspect it wasn't fitted properly in the first place. I'd take it back to where you got the tyre from. And sharpish, you don't want the tyre to give out on you unexpectedly. Especially if your in ...

Hi folks A couple of questions in a ramble/rant with regard to a back tyre from someone relatively new at car things! (So please be kind!) I don't have a spare wheel (not that I need a change of wheel, its clarification of what I have) just a compressor and a can of stuff - can the compressor itself...

New tablet

I am considering a replacement for my 2012 ipad (3rd generation) - it takes ages to start- sometimes goes back to home screen and other wee glitches. I have a desk top and iphone and was initially thinking of Kindle fire (I also have a paper white that is always in my bag) however I have been told t...

Re: Hand luggage only

Thanks all. I will go hand luggage size only, now with a view to putting it in the hold - saves the hassle of putting it up high and generally having it around when it can be elsewhere! Also on a flight earlier in the year, we were told that some hand luggage needed to go in the hold and if not enou...

Hand luggage only

Hi I have done a week in the sun with hand luggage only. I had no problems. I had to push myself to make sure I wore everything! So could have taken less? I am now going away for 10 days with my daughters family in a couple of months again to a resort in the sun. I will also stay a night either side...
