Well, I say what a day more like the last 24hours from time of post.
Last night putting the bins out, open front door (terraced house) and the light from the hallway illuminated a lovely nice big dent in the drivers side of my car. Miffed but not a lot can be done about it, looked over my insurance policy for claim/excess details. None the wiser, had a drink, went to bed.
This morning up early, Becky has second driving test so lots to do, gets kids to school and get home to ring insurers. £100 excess Chatting on MSN clicks whilst looking at photos, many a time I’ve laughed at the woman down the road who simply cannot park/drive…hang on she drives a car with red colour coded bumpers and paint on side of car = RED. With no evidence, ring insurers to notify them of ‘possible’ claim before shooting off out to get an estimate and report to police.
Part 1 - estimate = new front wing, repair with new door skin needed, new indicator light cover = £800 :eek:
Part 2 - “no Sir, get the car repaired, not a lot we can do unless someone saw it…” - “what about the paint?” - “lots of red cars sir, sorry” :mad:
Get back, Becky failed driving test number2 because an :censored: cyclist came out from a blind alley just before she made a turn…
Happily get to resuming business as normal, get a sale of software phone boss to confirm details - “hang on boss, there is a burning smell, I’ll call you back…”
water cooling unit - the one I suspected of leaking most definately is, its had it, kerpunct and took a cdrw/dvd combo drive with it (underneath the unit)
Now we get to some good bits, installed the block, the pump from a Aquarius 2 kit whilst keeping the rad from the knackered all in one unit = nicer cooling result cpu down from 45 to 38 with a near complete quiet system
I spose, days like these you have to look at the good bits
