      I suspect because NAT did it and NAT's two achievements in live on here are:

      i) Being unable to ban some users even when he tries to
      ii) Banning himself.

        Kantar, the post survey people, are looking for more people who are willing to send and receive letters and parcels to test Royal Mail performance.

        If you want to do lots of admin and send/receive lots of pointless post in return for an occasional voucher and monthly books of stamps you won't use (although getting the Christmas stamps is very handy), then you can sign up here:

        TNS Postal Panel: Royal Mail Private postal survey referral code is REFERRAL0121. I have no idea if I get anything for a referral. Probably more stamps.

        There's no cost outlay, just your time.

          Back on The Pink Stuff, this time addressing some long-congealed patches of vegetable oil which have been attracting a patina of muck on a tucked-away bit of lino in the kitchen, next to the water heater, for a good ten years or so, resisting all previous attempts to clean them

          Gone in two minutes

          And one additional observation: I used a J Cloth (well, Sainsbury's own-brand equivalent) which, once the job was done, was in an utterly foul state, as one might expect; looked like it was fit only for the bin, and the bin might reject it. Run it under the hot tap for a minute: clean as a whistle

          I suppose it's because said Stuff is mainly concentrated soap, so once the cloth is run under the tap, it just carries all the muck away. But it's literally back to the point where I can ball it up, get it sopping wet, wring it out, and only clean water comes out. It's saving me a fortune on cheap own-brand J Cloths

            I don't have any deep-set grime that needs cleaning up but all this product placement is having the effect of making me think I need Pink Stuff in my life

            I do need to clean my oven, mainly the door, for which I have historically used Astonish. Made in Bradford, dontcha know.

              Unsurprisingly, my oven could also do with (i.e. is desperately in need of) a clean - I'll have to give that a go

                Surveyor has been. As anticipated, all she really did was look around the place; and it seems the radiators will mostly go in the spots I thought they might, which isn't too bad as they're spots that won't drastically inconvenience me, though it might put paid to my plan to put up more bookcases

                She wanted to know when I could get stuff moved by, and I basically shrugged my shoulders because I haven't managed it in any recent years so who knows? My attitude is that if they give me a couple of weeks notice, I'll sort things out ready, whereas they seem to be thinking in terms of I tell them when it's ready and then they'll schedule it. But as she kept on being really vague about how they'd access stuff and so on, I don't know for sure what needs to move

                It'd be easier if the whole thing drags on until the warm weather returns, as then I could just move stuff in front of the fire temporarily as I won't be using it. But I'm not doing that in the middle of winter and then being told thank you very much, we'll be there next month

                    I use to do it and then someone sent me addressed junk mail using by fictional initials.

                    It was good not having to buy stamps for 4 years (well about 6) when they decided they didn't want me anymore.

                      I cleaned the part of the frame that opens of the bathroom window. I'm sure I cleaned it in summer but it was full of grime.

                      I think I'm missing Pink Stuff....
