Has Robson Green left the NE? Can't see how else he'd be encouraging folk to go there...... ;)

Roads round here filling up with motorbikes on "essential journeys".....

Yes, it is odd how easy it is to forget how to operate various essential bits of equipment - in fact, I had to be careful when writing out a cheque the other day to get it right. And I am always reminding myself how much maintenance and servicing everything needs if it is not in regular use. Have you tried all the different patterns of lightbulbs, for instance? You could fill a whole drawer with all the different shapes and sizes.

While I haven't done the van hire in a long time, I've found that being a known customer at [hire place of choice] means they're far better with [known person] than [random new person].

Over the years I've had several examples where 'no, sorry, we've got nothing' becomes "Oh yeah, no worries, there's this one, but it's not been cleaned yet" or where they've gone the extra mile to help me out on stuff when I didn't expect it.

So yeah, "hidden vans" doesn't surprise me at all. :-)
