Haven't done a 'blimey it's lovely here in Wales' post for a while, so here goes.

Earlier in the day, there was much glamour as a Nextbase engineer fitted a permanent ignition live for my dashcam.

26906978_10156062938288200_9187953051109

 

We also discussed the DAB unit I'd tested (and panned) last year. Seems my cheap Chinese multi-plug 12v thing was causing a lot of my issues. They've addressed some of my other complaints with a firmware update! Which is nice. Got another aerial, so I'm going to test it over the weekend in the Lexus with a trip to The Midlands.

 

Then we had a Little Chef lunch. The building and menus were so run down it's hilarious, but the staff were pleasant and the bacon sarnie just what I needed right at that moment. It was bloody cold today.

started to clear out my mancave a bit. idea is to get all the bits in the right places, take a load of stuff to the tip and then have room to do stuff

 

Therapeutic but kind of a real mess, the garage is worse!

I'm watching The Cars That Made Britain Great on My5 right now, and they're doing a big piece in praise of the Ford Escort.  It couldn't be more at odds with my column in CCB this week!
