Just back from weekend at Sue's parents to do washing, due to washing machine awaiting replacement. Have eaten far too much. Car mostly behaved this time! Still need to replace the sidelight (should be dead easy) and clean the IAC though (for which I need to find a replacement gasket, where?).

Hopefully new house paperwork will arrive tomorrow. Want to get the draft made out before any unpleasant surprises arrive in my bank account...

Heh... well, the car has a tendency to stall when idling, particularly at traffic lights or when turning: although it has done it when cruising round a roundabout a few times, which is *extremely* disturbing. a combination of such trustworthy research techniques as "trawling with Google" and "asking my Dad" suggests that this is a common problem with Omegas and Cavs, that the idle air control is probably wrong, and that it might just need taking off and cleaning. And a replacement gasket when it goes back on. I have tried to match up the photo in the Hyanes manual showing where it is with my actual car, with no success. So I might end up having to pay some garage to do it :| But having a car that doesn't stall would be nice.
