    Figured as much. I guess I'll just try to not lose the key then...

    I've just been quoted north of £200 to get a spare remote key for my 2003 Citroen, and £70 for a spare without remote, by Timpson. The car cost me £300! Does anyone know of a cheaper way to get a spare key?

    Ideally I'd get one with a remote as the boot doesn't have an exterior keyhole but I'd settle for just having a spare key full stop without paying £70...

    In this case, there were builders in the back court and they propped the close door open. I was thinking the other day - are most bikes nicked from closes that have windows on the landings (as opposed to closes with skylights)?

    I was in the Morrisons carpark at Crossmyloof the other day and when it's dark you can just see close landings with bikes on them up in the sky like illuminated advertising billboards.

    I know people aren't doing much walking because of winter/lockdown but I thought I'd try here before classifieds: I've got a pair of Meindl Burma boots that I've never worn outside for sale.

    https://meindl.de/product/burma-pro-mfs-­en/?lang=en

    They're size 10, which for Meindl is 44.5 - nothing wrong with them, but they were just a bit too small for me but I'd waited too long to return them. I've only worn them around the house to try and get used to them but eventually I conceded they were too small and bought the next size up. They've been in a cupboard for a couple of years and I don't have the box.

    Would anyone be interested for £100 posted?

    In order for this to not be just an ad, here's a couple of pics from Ben More (Mull) from September, just before the Scottish lockdown started, and Beinn Narnain in the mist in early October.

    There's someone in the Physics and Astronomy dept at my university whose surname is Starshynov. He should be the protagonist of a 7os scifi where the Soviet Union has gone to space.

    Update on this: the owner managed to get CCTV from the shop downstairs that showed the guy coming in and then leaving with the bike. The police recognised him and apparently have arrested him. Didn't get the bike back unfortunately.

    Just opened a dispute with Wiggle regarding a Hermes package. They sent me an email confirmation that it was delivered (to my workplace which has a 24hr staffed desk and postroom), but nothing doing - until they sent me another notification two weeks later that it was ready for delivery, then delivered again. Still nothing doing.

    Wiggle sent me a grandiose email saying that Hermes were going to launch a full investigation, search their stockroom, interview drivers etc - then when I completed the form that supposedly launches the investigation, they immediately offered me a full refund. Hermes are a joke.

    Cheers, he's been recommended to us before and he's on our list of people to get quotes from.
