I've had a bit of a break, I didn't post here for a couple of weeks or so but did stick my head round door to read threads. Situation is this, I felt the place here was having a bit of low point which with thanks to new admin it's now turning around. Along with this, I've gone through a marriage breakdown and started a new job back in domiciliary care after a few years out of it.
Oh and shite has been bought! 1994 Ford fiesta 1.3 lx. Two previous owners, both same family. Sister bought new in 94 till she suddenly passed away 6 years ago then her brother took it on but now needs an auto and has a mobility car coming. It's had its sills done, has a bit of bubble on one rear arch and front wing as well as the valance isn't great. Overall it's very clean. 50k on clock with electric windows, pas, central locking and sunroof which all works and no leaks.
A friend took me to fetch it yesterday lunch. Problem is I've cocked up. Went out looking for a small car to use to take strain off the peugeot while I tidy it up. Something I wouldn't be bothered about if it got dinged or knocked. This is too nice to use now so looks like the peugeot 307 will be sold as I've been caught by the passing attention of a vauxhall cavalier 2.0 auto. This place is a bad influence. More pics to follow if there is any interest. Also if anyone here is a decent body shop or paint please stand up!

Do like those Mk3 Fiestas :)

I used to have an early 4 had the same steering wheel funnily enough,think the last 3's did feature some mk4 love?

Sorry to hear of the marriage break up :(

Never been married but had relationship break ups over the years but somehow we always seem to dust ourselves off and bounce back ;)

Take care your in good company here :)

Jo

These things happen Jo regards marriage. I've bounced through relationships when in my teens and early 20s. Met her when I was 24. Together nearly 7 years and married 5. Separated 2 year back and tried again after a few month but things haven't been fantastic. The house was mine so I kept that. She cleared off with the dog and the bed!

I guess it wasn't meant to be :(

At least you still have the roof over your head.

Just a thought,based on my experience with bikes etc,It is much easier,and much more cost effective,to plough all your efforts into one car,keep it as good as you can,rather than having two cars that both need working on,both need money spending on,and both need tax,mot and insurance.Only saying as the festa is prob the best car you have put a pic up of,the only one i havent gone "ffs bub,not again!" :-)

Thing is I ideally need two cars in homecare. If I have a belt snap, spring break etc I can park it up and finish calls in the other one. More dependant on my car than ever. Not like Pizza delivery where I can say bugger it tonight. Folk depend on me to prepare food, bed etc.

Who are you again??

I can only give advice on sarcasm, innuendo and Fiestas. Seeing as you have a one of those sewn up I'm shit out of ideas :-)

Tbh as the old saying goes 'it might be for the best' so who knows.

Do have to say me first if you ever decide the Fiesta needs to go though :-)
