    Today I will be mowstly drinking beer in the sunshine. (Very) short bimble over to a local microbrewery to join the (selective) crowd at lunchtime, then the rest of the day will unfold as it decides.

    I think you should practise a moving pick up - it's an estate with a back door after all and she can run can't she?

    Struts refurbed and fitted to Old Porker finally.
    They're NLA so had to revamp old one's which means physically chopping the old shock absorber out and welding a M50 x 1.5 threaded sleeve for a cap to fit a new one. Plus powder coating.

    Get her to put all her stuff in shopping trolleys, estate door open, ramp lowered with wheels on it, run trolley up ramp.

    It'll be like Knightrider.

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being enjoyed, might make coffee in a bit. Going to walk to the old dear's to check on things in a bit, will look in on aunt and uncle round the corner whilst I'm there. Other than that, pottering.

    Currently parked in the halls of residence grounds while she gets her gear together, so the minigun won't be needed.

    I heard that you can buy promethazine (phenergan/sominex) otc in pharmacies again. Not sure if that's actually true or not. Chemical cosh for grizzling kiddies who need to sleep but can't. Obvs not for everyday use, but can be useful for longish flights, should such events become a thing again.

    I am not a doctor.

    Run took longer than expected which means I haven’t done any jobs. But as she has invited her father over for a bbq I might as well have a cider

    I think mine was the same if you include the stops.

    Went to the beach afterwards, didn't find the naturist one.

    As an aside, bambino just flooded his bathroom.

    normally i wouldn't care but i've just spent £11k on the bootroom directly below the bathroom. Tiles, decorating, bespoke cupboards, lighting.....


    lets see how big that insurance claim will be.
