It's winter - and the esprit still needs a run very week or so.

Went into the garage - the battery turned it over barely - but enough to start! Yippee best get a battery conditioner on order me thinks.

A nice run should charge her up just nice - so took the esprit for a run up to visit my daughter who's in Birmingham hospital.

oooh a spot of kfc on the way - parked nose facing uphill - off to kfc. Yum slurp fooood. Get back into car - start it - yep it's low on fuel should have filled up at the garage I just past at 99.7 - stalled - start again - stall - start again - give it the beans and down the road she goes - note to self - never park nose up when low.

park at the hospital - off to visit. 2hrs later come back out - oh bollox which fool left those headlights on......... In we get - flip the key - oh dear not a thing. However - since the car parks on a hill I very sensibly parked nose down - facing the road to the overspill car park. Rolly rolly down hill - bumpy bumpy bump start - result. Donut round the carpark and on way home we go.

Roundabout just outside kingsheath - come off the roundabout and hit the go peddle a little bit too hard - oooh - that's lively very nearly a @swindon_alan moment arse kicking left then right - then get it back in a line and drive a wee bit more carefully home. Fill up at the next petrol station at 107.3!!!

on the plus side - now back home - one very uneventful day - car in the garage looking pretty and very much desiring some new tyres.

wife asks - have a nice trip - I reply - yeah it was ok

You take it easy on those wet roundabouts, Mr K. There's a big sign with lots of pound notes on the front waiting for you if you're not careful...

And get those ****ing tyres changed!

Planning consent refused again.........

however this time with only one reason which can be sorted with a tweak of the plans.

so all in all - I'm remaining positive - 3 planning applications going in Wednesday!

Wish it was - no it's for 3 barn conversions under the new class q rules.

they've been putting me through the mill over the last year - but we are now getting to a more sensible place with the last refusal.

Great day.  New Years Eve and it's going to be 39 Deg today.  Started off with a quick trip to the beach with the kids (8am and 31 deg), which luckily is at the end of our street.  :-)    and then came back for a rinse off.  Kids are having a big NYE pool party tonight.
