Morning, all. Like l'homme de chat, off to London today. Haircut, calls and then an industry awards dinner thing tonight. Then a hotel. Should be fun. At the very least it'll make a change. I've even hoovered my suit and a shirt in readiness. Took me a while to find the buggers. I'd forgotten I had a quite new decent suit and also found a pretty new and hardly used pair of shoes that date back to BC (Before COVID).

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Hello rabble!
It's a pretty morning out there, but I'm happy to be curled up with my cuppa indoors with the stereo on for now.
Probably a busy day, but hopefully constructive. Failing that, so long as the house smells good when the bread bakes later.
HapPea Thursday! xXx

Morning all. Back in the office after a visit to the NEC yesterday. 380 miles in a day. Haven't done that kind of mileage since BC (I'll use that @Felonious Crud ).
And quite frankly I haven't missed it. The standard of driving on motorways these days is appalling!

Yep - it's awesome. A bit snug though, especially in my current "winter coat" format!
I had a shallower sump fitted earlier in the summer, which means it doesn't bottom out on bumpy roads or speed humps, and that has made a world of difference to its usability.

I know what you mean about the sump. An old colleague had a similar 7 kind of thing and we lost the sump on a hard landing after a humpback bridge on the way to the Crooked Billet in Wokingham one lunchtime. Shallower sounds very sensible. Harnesses, I suppose, are also helpful to keep you in the car in similar situations.

Morning everyone!
Bonjour Phil!
Not too taxing a day today but it should be an interesting morning, so looking forward to that.
Better, however, is poets day that'll turn Friday into Fri-yay with a trip into London for dinner.
HapPea Fri-Yay! xXx
