Yes, manual. Funny it's just instinctive when driving either flavour now although Mrs_Welly sometimes forgets to dip the clutch when stopping :oops:

Re: Welly's Fleet extension happened

I (and missus) are probably over-protective about possessions but we've worked hard to finally get nice(er) cars and make an effort to keep them out of harms way......this is all well and good but when it recently came to circling a car park and saying "nah" and leaving the exercise I knew we needed...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Eww don't talk to me about cutting yourself, since being on blood-thinning and anti-platelet meds the slightest cut sees a non-stop stream of claret :frown: The other day I cut my finger cleaning the car and a large jellyfied 'blob' of blood fell into the bucket....have you finished your lunch? :oops:

Welly's Fleet extension happened

6 weeks after sending the Twingo off to Daughter_Welly at her new 'oop north' gaff I have been missing it (the car not the person haha) :) Most of all I have been missing using a not-so-expensive car so I can do things like parking with common folk and such... Also it was always nice to have a 'tip ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

1 utterly barmy cocker spaniel Funny you say that, our ex next-door neighbore had one that got too much for them in the end. And then yesterday a neighbore a few doors up came down to see me with their cocker spanner and that too was 'enthusiastic' I crouched down to give it some Welly fuss and it ...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

You mentioned , as I recall, also steering clear of grains. What did you actually mean by that ? I'm still learning but things like White Bread, Pasta and Rice are all bad for causing a Glucose and Insulin spike and an inflammatory response in the arteries, these foods also lead you on the route to...

Love that Warty Well! The water pick up and hidy-cover are ingenious, a very well done from my camp sir! Doggy I reckon with HDi's of Frenchness you either get a good one or you don't, that problem kinda sounds like ignition barrel but guess you've exhausted all the easy-ish checks yourself, not eve...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

Cars: I've learnt you can't really buy a 'bad' car now. All the fuss about electronic handbrakes and electro-mechanical gearboxes well they just kinda work now and work well. I do think the Citroen could have headed towards the wrong end of a major repair at some point and do wonder whether all thos...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

Just checking back in to say everything is ok with me, been 8 weeks now. I've lost nearly 1 Stone in weight, although I wasn't 'fat' as such but by cutting out Bread, Crisps, Chocolate, Cereal and Alcohol the 'podge' on my stomach has gone and without really trying (regular easy walking only). I now...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

WillNZ - I agree and I've been told to avoid: Grains, Potatoes and Sugars and above all eat 'real food' which I mostly do anyway. I now eat Walnuts, Almonds and dried Sultanas/Apricots for an alternative to Crisps and so far I like that. Carbohydrates raise your blood Glucose alarmingly and make you...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

Thank you all forum friends! I feel pretty good now, they want me to try a new diet with less flour-based foods going forward; although I always thought we ate a good quality diet (all home cooking with real ingredients) but some aspects were less than ideal for health apparently, FFS what can you e...

Re: I can haz a new Car and a free.......

I am fit, 49 years old and 11.5 Stone, never get out of breath or tired :? Just never saw it coming, although I had shoulder pain for a week before which also radiated into the chest (I thought I’d trapped a nerve).
