    Here's my tale of woe! 0430 the Mrs goes in to labour, quickly zoom to the hospital and I park up and definitely switch off everything before dashing inside. Baby arrives and about 3 hours later I get back in the car (2003 Espace 1.9 dci), it starts fine and I go back home, about 1 mile in...

    I saw my mate Jim yesterday, he's only got one arm. "Where you off then, Jim?" I shouted. "I'm going to change a light bulb," he said. "That's going to be awkward, isn't it?" I asked. "No..... I've still got the receipt."
