I did say fella - don't go overboard...... I can attack it in the coming weeks as I've taken a bit of time off. I do appreciate the bits you've got done (and you've most certainly done a better job than I would!)

 

Roll on Monday......

There's no freaking way I'm letting this go off down the autoroutes with a bin bag for a window.

Car described as pile of shite, but that's the appeal.

Well - EVERYTHING - flight delayed....... connection also delayed so I didn't miss it, bonus* - Craig moved it to car park nearer ferry port for my RORO delectation and the fudging thing wouldn't start....... fuxxstixx

It'll be thrown at a local spanner-magician for proper diagnosis but it seems fuel pump carck'd it, perfect timing.

Foot passsenger to Malo instead, last train gone..... find a hotel...... 2*povo spec FTASW. Grab some cash, thinks I, not on your life - says machine. New bank card wouldn't bloody work. Luckily I'd kept hold of the 'temp' card and it still worked, so a night sleeping rough was avoided (although not sure it would've been any worse than the fleapit).

Not to be daunted........ in the words of the big girls blouse from Hitler's hometown - I'll be back!

Oh yeah - this was all on my birthday that I'd forgotten, so 2 days late back and gf not at all happy...... happy shiting everyone.......
