UK, Ireland / Sad life of a Polish migrant in UK. Ch. 3 - Food [93]

Milk is very bad, it tastes like water

Stop buying skimmed milk

It's not possible to buy Jacob's coffee

Yes it is try Asda

What do you expect when buying Asda smart price and Tesco value range and doing things on the cheap.They are cheap for a reason.You get what you pay for.

Life / Does anyone here know anything about fiat 126p's / maluchs? [7]

I still think a motorbike engine would be a better option :)

I know but its not as cheap as you think unless you have a machine shop in your back garden.Buying the engine and electrics out of a write off not a problem,its the mounts and transfer box(depending how you want the drive)Saying that there are some clever people who will probably do it on a shoe strig budget.Ill wait till Xmas when im back over in Poland and pick mine up and get in the damp garage pit and take a look.Chichento sporting engine possibly easier?

Love / Advice for meeting her Polish parents! [44]

I remember going to my now wifes parents for the first time.She had taugt me how to hello and nice to meet you to her Mother and Father and I just said hello as I was a little nervous using my new found words(not any more).

foreign whiskey for the Father won't hurt

I did a bottle of glenmorangie he hated it (didnt tell me to my face )

Making friends with the dog is important

I tried its an Alsatian it tried to fn bite me.(we are now friends)

yeah, the food part is important for the girl mother, so better like it :-)

Could not agree more.This was not a problem for me as I love my food.(I draw the line with sour milk and flaki)

Like others have said be youself and enjoy the experience and do make an effort on a few basic words in Polish like Thank you,Good Morning/Good night,Yes please and no thank you.It will go along way for you

Surley its a gasket leak or is it spraying out of the dipstick tube,breather pipe near the area with a split?.Id gunk the whole engine so its nice and clean.It would give you a better idea of were the oil is comming from.Oh by the way I purchased a 126 for £99.00. I pick it up when im next over.Ive done my home work and apparently they love kingpins(every few years)Try this web site: fiat126.co.uk

Travel / A small number of British Airways flights have been cancelled. [6]

A small number of British Airways flights have been cancelled from our forthcoming Winter 2009 and Summer 2010 schedule.

More information
Flight Withdrawals from 25 October 2009
London Gatwick to Krakow
Customers due to travel to Krakow may:

Rebook onto an alternative British Airways flight to any other BA destination in Europe, subject to availability. Onward travel to their original destination will be at the customers expense

or

Refund the ticket purchased to the original form of payment.

Cancellations for Winter 2009, from 25 October 2009. (The services will resume for Summer 2010.)

Very poor news as that leaves Ryanair (not an option for me ) or Easyjet which the prices are going through the roof.Looks like a long drive for Christmas or a very long time in a coach :-(

Life / Polish equivilent to T cut? Any ideas? [8]

I use by hand with a damp cloth,But can be used with a mop but use plenty of water and set the mop on a slow speed and keep it moving or you will be removing paint and used added caution on edges.What are you trying to achive?As a clay bars can also be used but very time comsuming but amazing reuslts

Life / Can you keep a right hand drive car in Poland? [57]

Also you may need to extend some of the wiring harnes as some lhd and rhd drive cars have the fusesbox steering wheel side and therefore the loom will not be long enough.To be honest I tinker with cars and if it was a project car I would do a conversion but for a daily driver I dont think it is worth it.

Here is a pic of a dash harness I removed from a VW mk2 Golf G60,this does not have the luxury of airbags and fancy gadgets so quite a basic loom
