Ive just double checked, it is £79/year, at least mine is/was and Amazon consider that to be 'The Best Value'

Thing is CSL, i don't buy tat and i watch less than 1hr of TV/week, sometimes i don't watch TV for weeks on end...

Most annoying thing of all the 'renewal reminder' was switched off so the £79 was taken from my bank account automatically.. ive just switched it on.

Crap!

Yup, i discovered a few more when we moved house, only because the mortgage company was aking me about my outgoings.
For 18 years i was paying for £38,500 worth of insurance cover for loss of tools/bikes/lawnmowers ect from our garage, only problem was we didn't have a garage Embarrassed

Happened to me with some low level roadside service company that I was automatically signed up for when I got a credit card. I'm embarrassed to say how much money I wasted before I got shut of them.

In the middle of the night i heard a loud smashing sound like breaking glass, it scared the bejesus out of me.. i went running downstairs to find the cat had knocked the large glass tank containing the stick insects off the windowsill onto the kitchen floor, smashing it into a million pieces... f**king stick insects and glass everywhere and nowhere to put them....

Bad news... and a silver lining this week

Bad news is... while trying to vacuum our stairs which are steep and narrow my mrs managed to drop the vacuum cleaner from the top of the stairs which hit her in the head and fractured her skull.. (pfft last thing she needed) It was made worse by the fact that its a heavy as f**k 15yr old Dyson, even i struggle to lug the damn thing up the stairs and i'm proper strong Embarrassed

I was contemplating having to buy a vac for each floor but having three floors (and a cellar) it would be a bit costly, We needed the lightest weight vac possible but the lightweight vacs tend to be cheap-shit and i didn't want to be chucking more plastic into landfill every few years if at all avoidable, i would never buy another Dyson because he's a complete bell end, anywho we ended up buying a Vorwerk...say what you like about these Germans and their perfectly fitting CSF, they certainly know how to make a decent vacuum cleaner.

Oh that sounds terrible! Most accidents happen at home eh?

I hope she recovers quickly!

Thanks, she's already recovered.. it was a good few weeks ago, we've just got the swanky new vac which has reminded me.
She'd vacuumed most of the stairs from the bottom, as far as the hose could reach.. then carried it up to the top of the stairs and while doing the last few steps it toppled over and hit her on the back of the head, she's lucky she didn't fall down the stairs.

Sorry to hear that Neal and glad she’s recovered - I think we’ve all had precarious vacuum hose/stair conundrums at one time or another. In my view there are 2 possible solutions:
1) Park the vacuum at the bottom of the stairs and work your way up OR
2) Always wear a crash helmet when undertaking housework, you could extend this to protective footwear to (with coverings for those who don’t like shoes to be worn indoors)

Thanks Martin, the old house had really wide stairs and only 7 steps up to a deep landing.. around a corner and then up another 7 steps to the first floor so you could safely plonk the vac down anywhere whereas this place has a tight narrow staircase with 13/14 steps so the hose will only reach halfway up/down.

Yeah she's alright, she lost consciousness and a fair bit of blood.. i was at work at the time (having ridden) so i asked my dad to swing by and make sure she was ok, he took her straight to hospital.

The crash helmet is good advice, maybe fullface to be on the safe side.
