Good evening!

Exciting news first - tomorrow I get my new car. It's a 51 reg Peugeot 206 Quiksilver 1.4 with a CD player and air con and a shiny spoiler. If you hadn't guessed, it's silver coloured. Being a Quiksilver car, this makes it gnarly, with a capital 'GN'. The good people at Abbey of Sale are providing it for me.

The only other news of importance is the interesting housewarming present that John provided for us on Saturday evening. It was a whole cooked pig's head. Luckily he didn't expect us to eat it, only have a few more drinks then pose for pictures with it. Said pictures will appear once I've sorted out my web site hosting...

Happy now, John?

Long time no post!

I've spent most of the past 3 weeks in Berlin (working, I'm afraid), so I've been a bit busy.

Anyway, I found out earlier this week that my car has been written off. My car is dead, long live my car, etc. This nicely increased my stress levels whilst being in Berlin, and I now have a confirmed large hatred for so-called "Sports Utility Vehicles".

I'm now on the prowl for a new car. Or will be, when I get back to Blighty (later today). The current favoured choice is be a Peugeot 206. Slightly bigger than a Clio, so other drivers can see them and stop in time... Although, I'm obviously open to suggestions.

Not a lot more to report at the mo. One of these days I'll post some pictures to the website.

Oh, and finally a big hello to those readers in Australia.

Or should I say g'day?

No, I shouldn't.
