    Another one of my gopro clamps broke but lucky I had hindsight to have a spare.
    Gas ran out on the water heater but the sapre tank was empty too.
    Got a £60 fine for being caught in a bus lane

    And that was one of my better days :D

    Well because of the flat I went and got a spare tyre and rim for £13 and my battery issues wh where found to be because my positive cable was loose. all in all it forced me to sort out the little things. ..

    Thinking of you all, my issue is the stupid pole hose is kinking like mad, does my head in, why does pole hose do that, its supposed to be pole hose for going up inside the pole, but no I think its scared of the dark and wraps itself up and kinks at the bottom or wraps round the pole like a boa constricta, if it had an eye, i would punch it in the eye, i dont do aggression, but ooooooohhhhhh:mad: makes you look like a plonker unravelling it every time you have to extend it.
