    electricity supply 'Bulb'

    Ok, thanks for taking the time to do it. I was just curious, but it’s as I thought all the smaller companies are all similar prices.

    How does Octopus Energy compare?

    I’m with Octopus energy now after Iresa went into administration. I’m impressed with them so far. I gave them my first meter reading yesterday morning and they had adjusted my bill by the afternoon. If you sign up via the link below we both get £50 credit towards our bill.Put in your postcode and get a quote. https://share.octopus.energy/amber-rose-955

    Discovery TD5 Es

    02 Discovery es 7 seater, full leather interior. Done around 127,000 miles from memory. Been stood for around a year. All the usual common faults have been done on this including rear suspension airbags, shuttle valve, fuel pipes and rear ace pipes and newish battery. Hpi clear with paperwork from when I bought it. Starts 1st time. Now the bad bits, it needs a Mot, a new clutch, power steering pump possibly leaking and the rear offside window needs putting back in its carrier ( motor works but when I went to lower the window the glass was stuck, as it’s been stood so long, so I’m assuming it’s pulled out of the carrier, glass does move up and down).Rear sunroof doesn’t work. I don’t have the time to sort these and just need the space on the drive, so need it gone. £1000 no offers.https://ibb.co/jaMwDxhttps://ibb.co/cfDXmHhttps://ibb.co/g6eSLchttps://ibb.co/egN3txhttps://ibb.co/hfg7Lc https://ibb.co/iyhqR7

    Electrical help

    If I was you, I’d phone the sparky who’s going to sign it off and ask him what he wants you to do.

    Thanks for that. There should be one winging its way to me at present, thanks to the generosity of forum member Deadly Plumber. Another one of the good guys.

    I’ve been after one of the fishing bags for a while now. I don’t think they sell them anymore.

    EICR cost

    Just forget about doing them mate, I have. I had someone phone me up a few years back and I quoted around £200. They just laughed at me down the phone, said they could get one done for £70. I said to them why are you phoning me then, you won't get any cheaper than that? Some firms are doing them for £7 a circuit around here, not that they will be worth the paper they are written on, but as said they rely on making money on the remedial work. There is no way you can do an EICR thoroughly for that kind of money, just filling in the report takes long enough. That's why i decided not do them anymore, it's just not worth it.

    Boiler Grants

    It’s a good job it doesn’t then, it’s got nothing to do with the welfare state. It’s the energy companies that pay for them.

    Be yourself, if you’ve worked for them for seven years they will know how valued you are to the company.

    As always with investing, fingers are only burnt or hands rubbed together when investments are cashed in.

    Pigeon shooting set up

    Fair enough, but with an attitude like that on this forum you won't get much respect. This forum is all about helping each other, and just to prove my point, Martyn was willing to pack it for you for posting and crazycooker was trying to get it delivered for you,
