What made you happy today?

Recommended Posts

Managed to repot some of my bonsai today, buds are opening on a few which isn't ideal but hey. 5 done, 28 or so to go. Back breaking work mixing all the soil as well, but satisfying to know it's done soon for at least a year if not two

Warm enough to not need a jumper while outside, quite nice down south!

Had done a lot of homework so had the day off, and went with my wife to a nice art exhibition. Then I did some work on the Esprit, and finally I played badminton with a friend. A nice day. Oh, and for the first time in a long while, the Sun came out all of the day.

Kind regards,

jacques

M100 sailed through the MOT...……..and B&C dropped the car back, same day, having given me a lift home when I dropped it off.

I always forget how good these Elan are; I will tuck it up for the next few months and await the Spring.

That looks lovely. There is something about the S1 isn't there. Just such an iconic, clean design and lines. Keep up the good work John keeping these beauties going...


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

A little box of happiness delivered today. Now if the bloody storm would go away for more than 15 minutes I can start making progress on fitting. What I would do for a garage on days like this!

Not quite finished as the weather ruined my fun before I could place it nicely with all the panels back. @alias23 thank you for the tips and instructions. So easy to fit, don't need to jack it up or anything more than undoing screws/bolts. Thoroughly impressed with how easy it was and the quality. Can't wait to finish tomorrow and go for a drive.

Makes a nice change compared to other Lotus parts I've bought and fitted. Customer service on point as is the product :) time to relax inside now!

Having spent a day or so removing the three bolts holding on the old header tank I was able to send it off as a pattern for a nice new shiny one that came a week or so ago.  So that just meant summoning up the patience to get the three new bolts back in for the new tank.  And it only took all day!  Yeaaaaaaa!

Simply impossible to get at.  If it needs doing again I'll leave it to Sparky!  But very happy its done for now...

Filled in and emailed off my dog adoption papers. Hopefully following a house check we will be eligible to adopt a dog from Staffie and Strays Rescue :)

Waited years for this, now just need to be patient a little longer - already eyeing up where to put the dog bed 😂

After removing a rear speaker so I could spray the back of the stricker plate bolts with releasing oil, I managed to adjust my passenger door so it lines up correctly and I found the speaker wasn't connected.  It is now and it works.

Bad news on the door handle, though.  (See what made you unhappy today?"

Saw the play 'The last temptation of Boris', which was fun and very well performed. Better still, the A3 was deserted on the way home, 15 miles of night-time bliss in Eagle Evora. What a brilliant car.

Following on from my last post in here, I have a house inspection from the local charity/shelter tonight. All things going well I'll be getting a dog :)

Now I have to work out how to fit the sodding thing in a car, my only car is the Exige and I don't want the dog in there ( most likely to be a Rottie, Bullmastiff or other Mastiff breed )

Maybe time to get an Evora *Man maths intensifies*
