Confucius say: The urge to acquire more chod grows stronger only when existing chod requires all your time, attention and cash.
To that end, I have spent about 98% of the past week glued to eBay and Bumtree looking at more
unwanted heaps blue-chip investments, the yearning is very strong. I need to eject the Astra from the fleet, but I'm still using it a bit and will be until the BMW is FINALLY MOT'd. This will be occurring in the next couple of weeks - I don't see any obvious FAILZ lurking, although the rear tyres are looking a little past their best now with a little bit of sidewall cracking but plenty of tread. Aside from that, anything that crops up will most likely be something you cannot see like emissions or some such guff.
Speaking of the Astra, as soon as the BMW is MOT'd it'll most likely be up for ROFFLE at £11.50 a throw if there is any early interest? Full details on the car to be found earlier in this thread. When the time comes (the draw will be next month most likely) I'll make a new Roffle thread.
Anyway, because I am quite literally unhinged. I've been casting my eye over various beauties in the classifieds this week. When I'm not working, pretty much all my free time is being taken up attempting to sort out my garden. Without drifting off on some kind of Tichmarsh-based tangent, the old dear who lived there before me had become too old and frail (lame excuse) to do much with it. As a consequence it currently looks like the set of Jumanji. So I'll be spending most of the rest of the summer carting rubble sacks full of garden waste to the tip and carting around ladders, shovels, and dogs. What I really need is a nice old estate, an old V40 looks a promising candidate or perhaps an old Focus wagon to use as a workhorse.
It should therefore come as no surprise to you all that my top three eBay searches this week have been as follows;
- BMW E39 Saloon.
- Citroen AX.
- Peugeot 106.
I'm not very good at this, am I? Although to be fair, my ideal two car garage would be a nice E39 Auto saloon for high-days and holidays and something SMOLL and PSA for commuting and dog-carrying.
