Oh yes that reminds me, I need to check that when the kitties have gone out. Test one, see if they all wail. Or not.


Very Scottish term that.   Also found in areas of the Scottish diaspora (e.g. NZ and some bits of Oz).

Running in the cabling for new mains-powered interlinked smoke, heat, and CO alarms.
To comply with the new retrospective building regs, this is going to require a total of seven devices due to the layout of this place.

Bloody hell!

I used to do that many years ago, before I got an actual violin (though I did have to improvise a bow from sticks and string). Not recommended as the bridge is too flat so it's chords or nothing. ;D

I'm at a 'happening' at my local.  Not a bad blues band out in the garden.  Oh, and I've just bought 1 ton of logs for £76 in the auction.  Bloody hell, £76 A ton.  That will do very nicely.
Admission.  I'm actually not that fussed about cake.

Recovering after fishing a huge pile of the previous occupant's long hair out of the bath plughole. Not the greatest idea I've ever had straight after eating breakfast.  :sick:

This Hairy Unit endorses the use of a spare bicycle spoke for hooking surplus hair from plug-holes. Then Mr. Muscle, should it prove necessary.

I did indeed use a spoke to remove all the hair, followed by a wodge of soda crystals and half a kettle of boiling water.

This hairy unit is going to pre-empt whichever ostensibly sensible hairy unit is going to recommend GAMI by grumbling about the leaks she had to fix last time a man meddled with her plumbing.

My wife use to have short expensive hair, now it's long and cheaper and a bloody nightmare because it's everywhere.
