  1. Favourite film as a kid was Little Monsters! If you aint seen it get it watched........although I havent seen it for many many years so may not be that good! lol Other than that I could watch 21 Grams, Four Rooms, Enemy at the Gate, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to name but a few
  2. To be fair you can buy cheese with fruit in it already like wensleydale (sp?) with cranberry or apricots etc, so why is cheese with jam suh a strange combination?
  3. Is your stereo on when the whining occurs?? Could it be a bad earth?? Or is it not that type of whining noise
  4. Yeh you'll need wireless capability and subscription to Xbox Live
  5. No way thats my old car!!!!! good to see it's being given some special treatment!!! I'll be keeping my eye on this one
  6. Or find a couple of powerline adapters cheaper from somewhere you could use them to get online instead

  8. haha Partytown is my xbox live tag, you from there as well? Yeh thought that, they aint in any hurry to get it all done tho by the looks of it! lol
  9. Usually your bank balance will have an actual balance and then an available balance. I'd pay attention more to the available balance than actual balance as this usually takes into consideration any overdraft facility as well as pending payments which are yet to come out (however not all banks show remove pending payments from the available balance so be careful). If you can afford it then go for it, however I'd be 100% sure you can afford it before ordering as going over your overdraft limit can be costly!
  10. I know they just seem to be moving the road works further down that road, takes ages to get anywhere in the morning! I'm from Partington but living in Flixton at the mo, where you from?
  11. haha its far from clean I tell ya, been meaning to give it a good wash in months!
  12. Were you in the red lupo by any chance?? If so twas me
  13. Do you mean like how many extra aaaaaa's people put in there when they pronounce bath or grass?? definitely baff and grass oop norf
  14. The passenger side wiper has stopped working all together, which has been a bit annoying given the torrential rain were having today! I've not yet had chance to have a good look at it, but just wondered if this had happened to anyone else at all? The wiper arm moves freely so I'm assuming its come lose or something
  15. Another thing you have to remember is that the 0% period is likely to be 9 months or so and at the rate of £40 a month paying your overdraft off you'd be 6 months short. You'd then have to go through the balance transfer scenario again and incur a transfer fee again, but doing this time after time could also harm your credit rating. Best bet would be to call your bank each month and get them to reduce your overdraft limit by £40/50 or whatever you think you can afford, it'll be paid off in no time! Worse thing I ever did was get a credit card or loan, seem to have been paying them off forever, as you get into the habit of using money that isn't yours and promise yourself you'll pay it back when realistically you wont
  16. I'll have a late summer too............Vegas baby!!! wooooooooo!!
  17. I think you may have miss read my post, the survey states £1k retention and it relates to the Timber and DPC nothing else, the surveyor mentioned that property of this age may have cavity wall tie failure not that it actually has it! Not sure what you mean by using my retention for that purpose, do I get a say in what a retention is used for?? I'm not in any rush to move, of course I'm going to wait until I find out the results of the survey........you wouldn't buy a boat with holes in so why would I buy a house thats not structurally sound???
  18. Cheers for all the advice people, basically the estate agent has agreed pretty much as above and is getting the vendor to get updated surveys etc and to pay for any work that needs doing i.e. a cash advance to be made on completion so we can get any work required carried out! The searches in the HIP are due to expire so good job they're going to pay for them or else it woudl have been another £250 on top of costs already paid for
  19. I'm in the process of buying my first house and have had the survey and valuation back........... It reccomends a retention of £1k on the mortgage subject to a timber and damp survey being carried out!! Is this likely to be the surveyor being overly cautious or a genuine issue? They also say that due to the age of the property it may suffer from cavity wall tie failure and may contain asbestos material, although neither of these relate to the mortgage retention. Anyone clued up on this sort of thing? I know it gives me some leverage to negotiate on the price, so if I get the price reduced are the mortgage company still going to enforce the retention?? Any advise would be appreciated! Cheers
  20. Lucozade..........or failing that, hair of the dog!
  21. Twas me, just heading to Tesco on the way into the office What car were you in only I would have noticed an Acid V6 Clio lol
  22. Same things happened to mine. As far as I know its either the motor or the regulator and its common fault........someone correct me if I'm wrong!! Also does anyone know the part numbers for these, or alternatively what other models the parts can be sourced from? Only this may be helpful to others with this problem
