What made you happy today?


Recommended Posts

Started to make some real progress on migrating the stuff from the garage (haven't had a car in there for many years) into the new-ish shed, to such an extent that having moved some of the racking it means I've actually now seen the inside of the garage doors for the first time in ages.

I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

The circle of life.  Fabrizio Giugiaro has bought the white S1 at Stocks, but when he came to check it over he didn't like the way the carbs were performing, so I went in to sort them out.  So, I work

It arrived and I’ve taken straight to James at South West Lotus and left the Evora with him for a few jobs. He’s going to paint the uprights on the wing body colour and put a nice big white LOTUS decal on the wing and also Union Jack endplates and fit the brake light.

I’ve also asked him to remove the steering wheel and send it off to be recovered in alcantara with red stitching- the same as the rest of the inside of the car.

Probably won’t see it until January now but no hardship this time of year.

I was thinking there's a bigger problem if Pete's now going to put his feet up and rest until Christmas. All the cupboards are empty, there's a lot of work to stock those else it will be like Cratchit's Christmas.

That island looks like it’s been Photoshopped in.

He's still got to paint the other cupboards to match it. No rest for the wicked and he's been very wicked I bet!

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Wish I knew what that meant

@Sparky " nothing really"  that's an understatement...What a buzz you must have had, wow !

I hope put your name on a post it note and shoved it under the drivers seat for future generations to find  :)

Didn't even get a decent pic!  Fabrizio did ask for a video of it being throttled up after the work, so my grubby mitt enjoyed its 15 seconds of fame.

Was going to post this in the "what made you unhappy", but now it is here.

Last weekend (5/12), was warming up for the first hockey match since the (stupid) lockdown. @thebartman - you playing yet?

Hit a ball - and an acute pain in my lower back. Hobbled off, and played 10mins first half, 10 mins 2nd. Absolute agony during the week. Took 5 minutes to get out of bed, transition between sitting and standing was really painful.

Doctor on Wednesday said possibly slipped disk or sciatica. Have been on ibuprofen and prescribed painkillers for the week.

Yesterday, watched my son play hockey in the cold and rain. My back started to feel fine, and this morning could get of bed with very little difficulty. Still got pain in the back, but compared with a week ago - tis nothing :)

Umpired two hockey matches today, with no problem :thumbsup:

Ouch, @ChrisJ,

I played 1st game in 7 weeks yesterday, now walking round like a bloody cripple. Achilles hurt, Hamstrings hurt, glutes' hurt and I had a golf lesson at 09:30 this morning that went down the tubes .... - was accused of not putting in enough pre-lesson effort ....  

🤣🤣🤣

 

Glad you have used your experience to find a way through the pain barrier ...   'bout time you learned that you're not 16 years old again though ....  ho hummmmm,

Fab that you could umpire, as without - there would be 22 (+rolling subs) that wouldn't get a game ...
