Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe

When the driver of this car parked and turned his engine off, the mirrors automatically turned themselves upward and offered a view of my next-door neighbour's chimney stack from the other side of the road.
Folding mirrors are supposed to protect themselves against vandals and passing traffic which gets too close, but all these do is offer a better target. Also they must collect the rain like a bucket, and there are electrics behind that glass. Bad design.
I have two birthday parties to go to this weekend and the weather is going to be shite. Thankfully, one has marquees and the other has a canopy in a pub garden.
My telescopic ladder arrived this morning. It has inherent danger even before you step on the first rung. If you collapse it in the wrong order you stand a good chance of breaking all the fingers of both hands under the falling stack of rungs.
Note to self: Make sure you collapse it in the right order.
