Glad to oblige. Could always be a competitor's review of course.

I clicked on the link - the message said unable to deliver to the Philippines due to high demand. Lying c***s - who in the Philippines needs a garden heater of any description?

Anyhow, I'm glad they don't deliver here as it looks like a heap of shite.

How are you supposed to pronounce James Tavernier's last name? Most people seem to go with Tavernier, but I've heard others say Tavernier? And I've even heard it pronounced Tavernier. It's so confusing.

Ally McCoist has this perfectly as he does with our striker, Morales.

Cleaning up the garden and we decided to lift a slab we've never know why it was where it was and this was underneath. Something to do with pipes? We've got a mains shut off in the street and I've nothing to lift it off with to see inside.

That's a manhole, the bit in the middle is a lid.

Does anyone know of, in the Falkirk area, a company that would come and lift shit loads of garden waste. Soil, bushes, stones etc or would drop off a load of bags that you fill and then they lift them?

I am convinced such a thing exists but cant find anyone

Looks like an inspection hatch of some sort. Possibly sewerage? Does it smell like shite?

My missus mentioned just last night that she’d seen someone offering this type of service on Facebook. Probably some sketchy chancers(s) but worth a look maybe?

Last time I used one it was £50 or so, for the mini size.

When the missus was out I filled it with a shitload of her hoarded crap & hid it with a layer of garden/building rubble

It's just the right size (here we go) to insert a drain rod and plunger in either direction of flow.

I hired a four yard skip last year and it was £150 +VAT = £180

If it goes on the street you'll need a permit, for Fife it's £25 per week.

It’s not a manhole.  Possibly an old rodding eye

If I book a holiday tonight for November and that country isn't 'open' by then, do I have a chance of refund or would I stand to lose everything as its been booked after the lockdown began? 

I’ve now booked weeks in both December and January but put them on the credit card. if they’re taking booking and can’t fulfil them, refund. If they’re taking bookings but go bust, refund via ATOL/ABTA and if even that fails, credit card cover.

It is a rodding eye, but is deeper than normal, it's not quite a traditional chamber but a man hole none the less.
