Tea and Wagon Wheels.....Now that's an offer I'm finding it very hard to resist Longdogs.....How did you know Wagon Wheels are one of my favourite biscuits...

Uncanny Longdogs.....Even as we speak Mrs Fox and me have been looking for someone competent enough to sort out our kitchen...I can talk a good kitchen re-fit, unfortunately that's all I've been doing for the last twelve months.....

Re: Have knowledge but now too old

You really get some stupid Kitchen fitters. This is what we inherited when we came here



How on earth do you replace the light switch if one has to with the side of a tall cupboard unit right up against it?
Some are so brain dead it is amazing how they manage to survive
yes i would take down the tall unit and replace with a waist high one if I had to

Back in the seventies Wagon Wheels had a promotion, whereby for so many wrappers they gave you a very authentic copy of an old wild west wanted poster. There were around six in the set I seem think, and I managed to collect every one....

This is just the type of thing I want to avoid Realspeed. I reckon a good kitchen is down to 10% good quality components and 90% good kitchen fitter....
