    Just have to vent some anger on these damn bugs, Loads of them this year, not only do they pasted all over your bonnet so its a nightmare to clean, but rinsing off the car after giving it a good wash and i have millions land when its wet and decided to stick to the damn car. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    On another note is there anything else that people hate when they come to clean their cars???

    ive gone to clean my dads and had the occasinal remnants of a bird wedged in the front splitter. :/
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

    Real issue this year. They are nettle greenfly. The damp warm weather has given them ideal breeding conditions. They are sexually mature really quickly, in 1 month 1 greenfly can sire 50 million. Ladybirds will have a field day when they come out to play soon.

    Waht an anorak I am.
