Default a few little troubles

i have had my 94 80 .. for a few months and have a couple of little probs ..

1 : electric windows ! .. sometimes it goes down .. then it wont go back up !! wait a while with the engine off , fire up press and up it goes!!!!! other times it just dont go at all !! this is both sides on both controls !!
2: ok got a bit of a noise .. like road noise but all the time ! obvious thing is a wheel bearing ?? or could this be caused by some well worn tyres i am on ...... i know change tyres then see!!!!
3: it uses a bit of oil!!! my mechanic knows the car ( bought car got mechanic as a hand me down ) and says it always has !! its high miles and it smokes a touch !! am i just being picky here?? should i stop frettin??
4: some half wit cut me up !!! i had to swerve ti avoid him and clipped a big kerb!! since then it feels a little odd!! .. not sure how to discribe it but it feels diffrent through the wheel... any ideas??
