Getting on for a month since i put the offer in on the unit that was rejected,

 

It still sits totally empty, so that's already over £500 the landlord is down.

 

And i bet it'll still be empty this time next month

 

And the month after

 

And the month after.

 

The guy's going to end up thousands down and still have a unit in need of doing up at the end of it, all because he wanted top bucks right away.

 

Nae luck sunshine, should have taken my offer.

I had a really quiet day at work today,  often this can result in boredom but fortunately I arrived prepared.

 

I wasn't prepared through organisation but through laziness.  I had planned to service the 405 earlier in the week but hadn't got around to it so had oil and filters in the boot.  I now have a freshly serviced car.  I did some welding earlier in the week and still had the kit in the boot.  This means that a door on the building I've been meaning to fix for about 2 years now has a fresh set of bolts attached.

 

Another grin was a big parcel arriving from Dome of this parish.  The result was a very full Peugeot on the way home to a very happy teenager.

I like them. We have two every days cars, a Nissan X Trail and ZX. I prefer the ZX by far

I've had numerous saxos, Picassos,a xantia and a xsara but never a zx. It's not bad at all for a 1.4. Think alternator bearings aren't great though and a noise like a droplink on driver side. Front and rear bumpers a bit scuffed up and outer indicator lense missing on driver side. Oh and stereo has no code!

I've used this garage for 20 years or so. I rang yesterday morning for a service and mot on our 2006 V70. They said just to bring it down. My partner dropped it

about 12. they rang at 3 asking if I was picking it up! full service, mot, new rear discs and pads and they were busy welding the exhaust as the receptionist was talking to me. There's a few garages could take a lesson from that. If I have issues with my van they drop everything to get it sorted. It's like a formula one pit crew watching them.

It's worth having a look through their page at some of the stuff they do. There's a defender with the 'dreaded disease'.

£300 damage for a years motoring's not too bad. Cycling with my son 15 miles for it this morning.

Accumulated some more CX S2 parts for squirreling purposes:

 

Exhaust rear box

Pair of side repeaters (might convert to LEDs)

2 AEI units

Another o/s bi-optic headlight

Jetronic ECU

Electric window switches

 

Might be in with a chance of a spare triple LCD console display later.....

Didn't expect to see a competitive game of rugby.

 

Did expect England to give Wales a pasting.

 

As a bonus, I've cleared* enough crap from the shed to be able to see my rusty 200 BRM with its OMGHGF engine again.

 

Maximum grinnage.
