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

And I will, of course, cold smoke some cheese.

Looks spectacular!

Snap, built mine into a “moveable” bbq bench. Got carried away with some old pallets and timber during the lockdown last summer.

Slightly concerned you know the price of a decent hooker.

Perhaps not too decent...

What's a pension? I must admit I am thinking of cashing 2 I have in and just keeping my Company Pension which they pay into as well as me. As far as I can see 2 Pensions of £20k and £27k aren't really growing by much and they are frozen and even when I retire they will only be worth £100 a month at most. I think I should do what my mate has done. Cash them in and invest in a small property to do up or buy that Holiday Apartment we have always wanted.

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

A friend just moved his old company pension, the firm paid him a lot more than the current value of his pot. That leaves him free to move it to another pension and so reduce (overall) admin costs and hopefully get a better value when retirement finally arrives.

The value of my pension pot over the last 12 months has increased by 13.79% 😎

You prompted me to look at mine - 28.87%!   My provider provides an online dashboard. Very happy with that but obviously a year ago we had the COVID crash.

#Rubs final salary pension scheme documentation.

Whilst years of service is no longer counting (we now have a separate defined contribution scheme) the final salary part is still linked to my salary.

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Move them to a collective retirement type of account and get them actively managed and growing. The fee's are low and you could grow them over the next 15 years or so...

£47k now at a manageable 6% growth compounded could be a £115k pot in 15 years.  25% of that as tax free lump sum would give you £28.5k back in a lump sum - you're original investment! With no need for additional deposits but you could add more whenever you could.

Just found these whilst idly browsing:

and I think they look superb.

I suggested these to the wife as a Birthday treat for me - she says I've got too much time on my hands.

Maybe I'll suggest them to the kids, Fathers day coming up in June...

Used up all the petrol in my Evora, had to get some more. Roads are lovely and quiet, well, they were until someone thundered past like the horsemen were in pursuit. Got some milk too. :D

180 and 300 between centres.

I need to have a look to see if it will meet my requirements, if not it’ll be on eBay, and should make a tidy profit!

Nothing like getting in early!

Assuming I keep the lathe, then I’d have a look at it.
