    Astra and Ikea - They do Mix..

    Hi all

    New EGR valve arrived this morning, so rushed home to get the bad boy on and to lose the annoying engine light..

    BUT catastrophe shed burgled by some vicious evil criminal types and ratchet set missing..(They left the brand new Dewalt set, but there you go, some people are too stupid to be criminals)

    But don't despair as a hoarder of some considerable talent, I have kept all those, useless until now spanners and tools from Ikea furniture. It turns out that the "loop" spanner (sorry not sure what they are actually called - but you know the ones that don't look like a claw) that came with my baby sons nursery furniture fits perfectly.

    Probably not very interesting, but I am feeling particularly smug about it..

    David
