It just really frustrates this woman's lack of consideration for neighbouring property.

My other neighbours needless to say a far from happy at what the council has said as they will only take further action if it happens again, then they will investigate the problem, while in the meantime I cannot fully enjoy our garden

I'm getting to the stage that I'm no longer enjoying my home due to this woman and if were not for the fact that she is elderly and I like all my other neighbours then I would be off

Hubby has also bought some rat traps again the ones in a box as we do not want to harm other wildlife.

I just feel that my home is so dirty yet I know it's not and this problem is certainly not my doing as I keep both my home and garden neat and tidy.
Good thing about the bait boxes is, depending on the poison used, is that the rat takes the poison home for the rest of the nest to enjoy. No surprise the old bag has rats though, they have an affinity for each other

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

D was dreading telling me but in the end he realised that there was no way he could keep this from me any longer.

Tbh I did think it was strange when he kept saying I'll get the rubbish or don't go in the garden I'll water the plants etc I just thought she must be up to her old tricks again never in my wildest dreams would I have thought the problem was a rat well not of the animal kind anyway.

Knowing my youngest he will want to keep it lol

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I'm really down today the sun is out and I can't even enjoy my garden, tumble dryer is on and the kitchen looks a mess as there are clothes everywhere when they should be drying outside but I simply refuse to go out in the garden for any length of time.

I honestly feel like peeking over the fence and doing this but I suppose this rant will have to do.

Weenie, if you replace those seed trays with hanging feeders you could either buy or make undertrays to catch the spilt seed which is what Roland Rat and chums will have been after.

I made this one with a large pot saucer, the chains from and old hanging basket and the acme thread from the bottom of a mop pole which screws into the thread at the bottom of the feeder. It catches most of the spillage and the collared doves mop up the rest.

Nice one you just need to remember to drill some drain holes in the base of the saucer for when it rains. I used the wee drill bit on the Dremel. As long as it's emptied out every day it should be fine.

You can get bigger saucers than that in Wilkos which is probably a good idea if you get Goldfinches as they are the messiest eaters on Earth!

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Built-in oven's blown its element. I was waiting for it to get to the right temperature to bake some bread and suddenly there was a loud fizzing noise. When I looked over it was glowing yellow at the back with blue flickering so I quickly turned it off before it could blow a fuse.

Good thing I hadn't actually put the bread in. I cooked it in my worktop small oven/grill unit instead. Tight squeeze and needed a foil cap to stop it burning on the exposed element but did OK.

Found out the oven manual where I've noted the spare part numbers and types of element that fit. Fortunately although the oven was marketed by B&Q with the kitchen as "Banquet Cuisine" underneath its "Homark" and it's a common part across a range of other brands. Have to get one ordered up, around £21 last time so not too bad.

First time the element went in my oven, I called someone in to replace it - and was charged around a 100 quid.. I'd been watching him, and it took 10 minutes.... and thought, that's not that hard, I can do that!
So next time I ordered the element myself and did it, in pretty much the same amount of time - though I did get stumped by the bolt on the fan needing to be turned the opposite way to usual to take it off...

As an electrical engineer you no doubt have far more confidence for this kind of stuff

The fitted kitchen is over 30 years old so it's job I have done a number of times as I use the oven a lot. Pretty straight forward screwdriver work so most people could tackle it. Just remember to electrically isolate the oven. Mine's easy as it plugs into a standard 13A socket behind the unit it's in.

Yeah, before we moved house, we'd had our oven for about 14 years, so after that first time I did it, I ended up doing it a few other times.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Going to make the most of my job tomorrow. Got a disciplinary meeting this week, for counting inaccurately last week. It's my first formal disciplinary for anything, but I have a horrible feeling it will be the sack for me this week.

Just keep doing a good job - itís rare to be sacked on a first disciplinary for anything less than gross misconduct (theft, violence, etc.).
