Can't get the van out of the garage??? did you measure wrong? Time to modify the doorway? hmmm  I'm sure you will find a better solution than my suggestions. Oh well I tried.

  Keep taking it easy on that wrist girl! I mean it now! If I hear you hurt it again it better come from the top of your fridge!

Hugs,

I assume the height problem is more than an inch or two, or letting air out of the tyres would be a quick shortcut.

In the 1970s my mother was an engineering draftsman and one of the company's projects was a control panel for a nuclear power plant.  She transformed the specification into drawings and the control panel was built in the shop.  The project reminded me of the control room for Apollo moon missions.  After months of work by the entire team a truck (a lorry) hauled it 200 miles to a nuclear facility called Washington Public Power Supply System.  A lot of people called WPPSS "whoops."

A week later the truck came back and it wasn't empty.  The panel wouldn't fit through the door at its destination.  Widen the door?  No, the walls at the facility were 1.5 to 5 foot (50-150cm) thick concrete to shield from radiation.  The power utility paid a huge amount of money to have the panel redesigned and rebuilt.

It just cleared the door frame going in by less than 1/2 inch, will be about the same now but might have to let rear tyres down as no engine or box in now. The pork and mushroom curry I made early last year was a disappointment but over 12 months of practice later I have cracked it, came out spot on , only 2nd time I have done it.

Just caught up with over a weeks worth of your updates and as usual the caring cooking whirlwind that is Davina has been hard at work again. I hope you can get your wrist sorted out is one of those nagging problems that makes life just that bit more irritating. Between the cooking, the car restoration, looking out for friends, socialising and seeing family I am amazed you have time to update your thread.

Take care

Cheers Liz, wrist getting better thanks, spent the day sorting rubbish from my unit and filled 5 sacks. Back seat of motor full of cardboard to recycle and a bag of drink bottles and stuff to recycle as well. Called in on EX as eldest lad was there, found out youngest has a broken thumb on l/h . Plate on crane on the delivery lorry he drives slipped down across his nail and cracked the bone so he has been of work for weeks (no one told me, but whats new) and nails totally black. Back to food!!!! made an apple crumble with instant custard for tea , washing up now before Strictly come Dancing starts.

I hope you don't stress your wrist too much by moving things about.  You must have been really tired.  I hope you slept well.

You do not want Laurie to come over and grab you by the wrist.

Slept fine thanks apart from some wild dreams that I cant remember now!!! Wrist is fine as it was twisting motion that caused problem, fine picking stuff up. Off to see the doc now to have a tag removed from right armpit , gets in the way when shaving under arm. Back to work tomorrow, good job as put on 3lb due to lack of exercise and time to cook . Right shower and shave time .
