  1. Give 'em a vote with 3 options. Leave the UK, be part of the EU Leave the UK, leave the EU. Stay in the UK, ergo leave the EU. Then let's see what they really want and be done with it.
  2. I've always thought he's been in the running for years. Not sure why, just something about him.
  3. Yes, anyone putting their shoed feet up on seats gets my goat. So does sitting kids on tables in restaurants or on counter tops etc.
  4. Just found this on my iPad. This is what we were up against. If you aren't planning on staying long perhaps you can get away with giving it a lick of paint.
  5. I don't like people starting before everyone has their food. That means everyone else's can get cold too.
  6. Today's irritation is that I feel OXO are misleading me with, what they claim to be cubes, but are in actual fact now x shaped. When did that happen?
  7. Agreed about the health issues. We left there two years ago now. My kids haven't been sick since we moved. They had recurring problems when we lived in that damp mouldy house, particularly their chests. It finally came to a head for us when the rain would come in under the front room window and I found my curtain pole on the floor one morning because the wall was so wet and crumbly it fell out. Landlord claimed he couldn't afford repairs and then somehow afforded to leave it empty for over a year when we left, seemingly not missing the £675 pm rent. It's recently sold for around 260k. Good luck with that I say.
  8. I agree it looks like condensation. We had this problem in our previous home. It had a flat concrete roof in the utility space just off the kitchen. The kitchen had a window but there was a conservatory built on to it so opening it only meant cooking steam went in there instead. The utility ceiling would get so wet it would drip on your head and not long after we moved in it started looking exactly as you picture. It was a result of the warm air in a house with five people living there hitting a very cold uninsulated roof. It was only a small space and we rectified it by putting up some kingspan and then tongue and grooving over it. The landlord reimbursed us. Another thing we found helped in other part of the house where we had similar problems was to use kitchen and bathroom paint.
  9. I love this. My bugbear is dawdlers and I shall try to think of this to stop me getting my hair off.
  10. We have loads of Himalayan balsam along the route where I walk the dog. There are only a few houses along the route valued between 500-900k and I noticed in the summer that it's crept into their gardens. The council don't seem bothered about it running along the riverbank. Not sure how big an issue that particular plant is compared to knotweed.
  11. Because of floor space. In July I previewed and ordered for SS15. Some brand's SS lines arrive as early as December. Not far into January and whilst SS is still arriving I'll start forward ordering for AW15. The reason Next will be having this issue is because they're AW lines are already coming into stores but the weather is still too good for anyone to be interested in buying as you've said. Companies such as Next would have forecast and booked their orders with the manufacturers and organised the deliveries months ago.
