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

@Chillidoggy went to Margate today, I didn’t get mugged and the car was not broken into also had some very nice fish and chips. 
 

Dreamland is a bit of a shame though and my God it was cold.

I got tipped off you were coming, and went to Dover.

Just collected the keys for our second Dartmoor holiday cottage. Maple Cottage is a Grade 2 listed barn conversion just outside Chagford. It’s been empty for a couple of years and needs a bit of TLC. hopefully we’ll be on the market around Easter. Woohoo to us😊

That’s about 10-15 minutes from me. Lovely area. 👍😊

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I might finally be able to get more than 30 down and 5 up. Only £20 a month more than BT's best package in my area, yet it beams it from space!

If I was on a landline I would get 1.5mbps and have to pay around 30 for the privilege.  I have a sim enabled Hauwei router.  In this I put a mobile sim costing 35/monthfrom EE that allows up to 1TB of download data and 10 devices before being considered commercial use achieving 90mbps down and 40 up.  This is NOT a data sim.  You would have to pay more and get a smaller data specific package.  EE and 3 are the only companies who currently allow tethering in their small print.

Lovely weather this afternoon, so I spent it weeding the garden.

And I cut the grass for the second time this year....it was quite pleasant.

Spent the weekend fixing one of my sewer inspection cavities. New brick work, new covering etc.  Then finished one of the wooden borders between stone path and flower bed. Then built a table for the chop saw but wasn't paying attention so managed to chop the end off my chop saw sub fence - doh!  Never mind, new one sourced and ordered for the princely sum of £13 including p&p. Just glad it was the sub fence and not my fingers/thumb.  Ironic that I was building a portable table for the chop saw to be permanently attached to with a "plumbed-in" dust collection pipe etc.

Anyway, a very productive weekend and nice to spend the majority of it outside in just a polo shirt and shorts - Scotland in February. Superb! 

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!

Crikey, removed some dead shrubs and replanted under the study window over the weekend. It been nice , but Long trousers long sleeved polo and I was cold. My hands are still frozen. I’m about to light the wood burner again. So much for the south.

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

It is certainly better when we can get out and about in our gardens during this lockdown. Much more depressing just looking at the cold wet weather. We are lucky to have some land to play with as well.

Do we need to start a 'Gardeners World' thread? :lol:

Mowed the lawn (2nd time this year here too!), sprayed it with iron sulphate to clear out the moss and give the grass some colour and also did the whole roof of the house too (thankfully I'm in a bungalow!) to kill off the winter moss. Cleaned 4 cars and just back from a 45 min bike ride with my daughter, a very busy weekend and really good to spend so much time outside for a change :thumbup:

If you are then do you need to see the effort on my Choisya Bush over the last two weekends?

The exposed soil is how far I have cut back.
