It was Mrs T's birthday today, and she fancied going to France for the day. So off we went, tunnel this time.

After a nice lunch in Le Touquet we strolled and I did some spotting (although this 20 was a lazy sat in car spot).

The Clio has lived up to its Frenchness and the driver's window no longer works. Trouble is it stopped working whilst in the fully down position...good job this only happened later in the day and the weather remained lovely!

Currently sat on the shuttle waiting for the off.

No photos (yet) but it’s been nice outside work today with the stock from Bonham’s recent Aston Martin sale outside, DB4 and 5s, Volantes and the prototype DBS v8. Plus a couple of s1 e types, what looks like a Docker Daimler, pre war Bentley and a beautiful 1950s Alfa Romeo. Plus! A 2door Bentley Continental, pre war MG, three XK120s and an odd wire frame that looked like a 250gto shape.

The four mclaren f1s were a bit dull in comparison!

It’s a good thing I wasn’t too busy today as I must have spent an hour drooling over the window.

Resettlement & relocation? It says it's possible in the description so if it gets to interview I will be asking.

Took delivery of an excellent replacement steering wheel and centre console lid for The Volvo today, which had been liberated from a scrapped low mileage 940 saloon by JoeyEunos of this parish, solving a couple of cosmetic issues (no paint on the 'VOLVO' emblem on the existing one's centre pad and the existing centre console lid (from a 960) not being the correct style or colour) and allowing the horn to work properly:

They cleaned up brilliantly and now take pride of place in the car, as swapping everything over only took ten minutes in total. Very nice  8)

The console lid is very slightly worn at the leading edge (TADTS, and what caused me to junk the car's original one in favour of the 960 one in 2004), but you have to look very closely indeed to see the wear. However, the steering wheel is practically like a new car's and has none of the sun fade that old foam steering wheels tend to suffer from. I imagine that the donor car was garaged for much of its life.

There’s a 3 bed house going to auction later this month on one of the Orkney isles - £41k guide. Assume it’s utterly fucked inside.

If I had some surplus cash knocking about I’d be seriously tempted - what an amazing place to be able to escape to

The roads in Shetland are really nice and I have seen some chod.

Opel manta
Escort MK3
Berlingo vans
Sunbeam Imp
MGB
Vauxhall Nova
Buses from last century (will picture once home)
Boat shite is all over the place.


They had a classic car show while we had shitefest.
However getting a car here is £stupid and camping in a tent is not an option if you have brain cells remaining.

Who knows, best indication is a same type sale in the area for £70k in 2016.

The house in question sold for £40k back in '07, it might be a repo or death sale and whilst the garden looks shit, the roof looks good.

Can't both are NHS jobs so banded & I'm already top of the band so can't inflate it.

 

 

Housing & shopping. It's in the Highlands & just doing a weekly shop costs more up there.

 

 

 

I've had a brief look at house prices and don't see them as appalling but I live in Aberdeen and perhaps you can buy a 2up-2down in Donnay for thruppence ha'penny.

 

Don't forget that council tax rates are lower up here (and they include water charges), dental checkups are free (and work is subsidised), eye tests are free, prescriptions are free, your car insurance will likely be cheaper and the NHS works better.

 

You can gie it laldy as both discount supermarkets are in Oban and the ferries are subsidised for local types.

 

The minimum booze price is only an issue if you drink meths, white spirit or cheap cider and the income tax rate will likely be lower but is more than cancelled out by council tax rates if you are one of the 6 or 7 % at the top end.

To explain house prices, I've got a rough 3 bed semi with garage in a cheaper part of donny for £71k last october. That appears to be the price of a flat up there.

£180-260 depending on what and where.

 

A 2-bed semi in rougher part of town will be north of £125, through work I've seen new build 3 and 4bed houses up in fish country go for £250-400 with up at £120 of extras on top (fish money os stronger than oil money at the moment).

 

 

Older two bed flats in the nicer part of town
