    That's just an age thing.

    Helping OH load a secondhand quad bike onto a pallet in -2C temperatures this AM. The thing was faulty ie does not start when it arrived so was rejected vendor asked to arrange collection. Vendor dropped off face of earth for a while but we know where he lives. OH has arranged for courier to collect and deliver back. Invoice for additional costs has been sent to vendor. Legal action pending if he does not refund promptly!!

    ETA The couriers sent a lorry too large to fit down our drive despite an explicit explanation about the access. They are sending a smaller lorry tomorrow........

    On-line recipes that think a video is needed.
    If I need to be shown how to put flour into a bowl, I am not suited to be let into a kitchen with sharp objects and hot things!

    Also: Online recipes that need a couple of pages of "how I found this recipe and what a wonderful holiday we had hiking in the mountains before coming back to the chalet for a lovely bowl of..." before actually telling you the ingredients and method.
