To be fair, its the first time ive waxed it in the 2 years ive had it :lol: and itll be chopped before its 3yrs old, so it aint likely to happen again either :D (sorry Kev O, Mike S, i know im a peasant :lol: )

Glad you are feeling better Craig but waxing your car :shock:

I chopped in the Audi about 3 weeks ago. Payments have ceased and I still have the car because they can't collect :) about the only good thing to come out of this :D

Crouchie, not sure how that will work mate :lol:

I know, Claire ordered the 'self cleaning' model :roll: but clearly Muggins didnt... :|

To be honest mine only moved today as kids had eaten everything edible and were starting to eye up the Hamster...put a set of new tyres on it 3 days before lockdown too!

EDIT
tyres were on the car, not Hamster, hes got plenty of tread depth left :lol:

We log on to Zoom and sit with a cup of tea & a chocolate biscuit while we take the piss out of each other!
Same as most Thursdays only you can’t throw tools or hot metal at Dad! :D

WTF is zoom, yer wasters? While you two 'ave been testin' beds I've cracked on wi' sandin' an' stuff!

Second thoughts, I like the lack o' "throwing tools an' hot bits"! So you nerds carry on! I'm busy!😎😁👍

Edited:- bleddy glad t' hear yer back upright, hope yer family's still OK. Missing the garage night banter.
