Good morning all. Back from our trip up the Rhine. Will be supervising the village coffee morning today - mostly little old ladies, so I should be able to break up any trouble.

Morning. Into work today to fix my own cars….I have one of those situations where all my cars are sick and I nearly looking at my daughters F500.

Strad, think the master cylinder is failing.

GTV, running bagofshite, fixed that one last night, plugs and a bit of water down the plug bores, sounds easy, nope, plenum off to do the rear bank. 6 new plugs, purrrrs again

100052

Brera Spider, gearbox bearings gone a month into ownership, Andy, I should have learnt after the Brera fiasco.

Opel GT, I got that all up together earlier in the year. That’s running nice

Renault 14…in bits in the garage, that’s a long job.

Enjoy your weekend people. Zep down for planning meeting of the Euro trip….just got to sort that and not start drinking first….tough one

A very good morning to all. Alex had Karting this afternoon but other than that a quiet morning.

Who would have though UK 2nd in Eurovision which really would have been first if Ukraine didn’t have the sympathy support vote as their song was bloody awful. But it was clear that when the public vote came in Eurovision was part of something much bigger than just the song last night and gave a message of support for Ukraine in these terrible times. This was clear to see and I’m sure has lifted spirits.

I have had a week of mixed feelings, a good friend of over 45 years died on Monday after a year of being in and out of a coma, his funeral is in Spain and I can’t get there, I will attend via video link. So sad to lose him (he didn’t quite make 60 yrs) but glad his suffering is over. He had always been fit and healthy but became ill after his first vaccination in May 2021 they are still investigating the connection.

A man whose family we befriended after my wife met them through volunteering has been ill with cancer for 5 years, now has just weeks to live. He has been in and out of hospitals all this time with very few periods of being well enough to participate in family life, when he is well enough I would take him for rides in one of the cars to put a resemblance of a smile on his face and give his wife a much need break.

This morning we are helping to take him to his eldest daughters first communion, something he has been fighting to be well enough to attend and we are pleased to help make it happen.

On a happier note, our Ukrainian guests are settling in well and becoming a little independent, they are lovely people and so grateful not only for the help we are able to give them, but the kindness of so many people welcoming their countrymen and supporting their country, they are such proud people.

My eldest daughter is planning to get married and is moving closer to us next week, which is just wonderful news.

These things (and my job …lol….) remind me that we must live our lives as best we can, be the best we can, and don’t waste the lives we are blessed with.

Oh, and this afternoon, I am off down the pub…… life goes in :D

Arrggghh .... it's raining here on the Isle of Wight this morning! What happened to the brilliant weather we had yesterday(?)! I was planning to give the car a polish this morning and then go to a meet with my local car club. I don't want to do that if it's going to be raining. I need a Plan B ... Maybe it's time to get the HVAC out and replace the bulbs(?)

Good Morning everyone, sorry to read your bad news Sam, it's always a shocker when someone dies in their 50's, especially someone close or you've known for a long time. As you say life goes on etc.
This week, much needed rain for the gardens and waterbutts will be on and off. 15mm on Wednesday night according to yr.no (yeah-no) and I'm on call that night. Marvellous.

Go well, enjoy your weeks.
