It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

get a one man bleeder kit from halfords (about £7) and then you can go around the car and bleed the brakes without a assistant, you just attach the tool to the nipple on the caliper, loosen the nut, press the brake pedel a few times till there is no more bubbles in the hose and then move on to the next corner, there is a specific way to go around the car but if you start at the back and finish at the front it should be ok

if it overheats with a full radiator, then I would say head gasket. Waterpumps do not cause overheating unless they are leaking all the coolant out of the engine.
