Jumper, gloves, chocolate & two bottles of gin, now that's well worth getting up for. Vegetables prepped and now excused further kitchen work. Best wishes to all especially the boss - if he's reading.

Greetings all.

Pressy delivery run to junior daughter successfully carried out. Went well up until the point where I fell asleep (thanks to the IF). Ear is a bit warm after SWMBO "had words" about falling asleep when visiting....and I didn't even have a drink.

Excellent news - best wishes Mr D

The only good bit about today to be honest - Christmas does not sit well in this household.

One hopes that you had an admiral Xmas FSL, the rudder of this ship should now be able to stop fluttering..

One took ones mighty BT50 off road on Xmas eve, now have a large collection bush pinstiping on the sides. One hopes that a good polishing will help hide them. Also tested the suspension after hitting deep ruts that I failed to see, suspension passed.

Why??!!! One would have thought that such 'damage' was a mark of pride to show that said vehicle had spent a short time of its life off the tame streets of Kensington?

just popping in to say a belated happy Christmas to all, and particular greetings to FSL. You will realise, you have been missed, Tony.

FSL, back onboard and free from any chance of being put in the rattle for being adrift. Any chance you can do the middle for me?

Not the real Perth then ...

Tony, you have drawn a lot of attention to 'north of the Humber and east of the Pennines'. Well done! And welcome back.
