First of all the boiler packs in, terminal failure of the flux capicitor or something like that - parts discontinued 15 years ago.

My car, 2 month old 58 plate Volvo V70 gets smacked on the nose by some flying debris on the motorway. Smashed grille, dented bumper and smashed fog lamp surround.

Mrs Reki found out today she is going into hospital for an op on Xmas eve.

It's going to be one hell of an Xmas :roll:

sorry to hear that dude, but just think, there is always someone in a worse situation than yourself.

for example, a 65 yr old chap in the next town from me went outside after some kids raped his car, confronted them, got kicked to shit and then spent 3 weeks in hospital with brain injuries before dieing yesterday.


I'm sure his family will have a great time this xmas. :(

Hey Reki keep us informed of Mrs Reki's progress over Christmas and be sure to tell her that we'll all be thinking of her.
What happened to your boiler ? I might be able to help. I just serviced my own 20 yr old boiler and used to be a heating engineer in a former life :wink:
