Up, ready. Child 8 doesn't seem keen. Doesn't want to leave his popcorn.

Once assured he can bring it with him, he perks up a bit

She has to park like that to make room for the minibus I drive. Irritating I found this morning that my policy *doesn't* cover me on other vehicles as I assumed it did because it's a minibus policy, so I'm desperately trying to sort insurance while on the train.

Well, insurance sorted. £250 or thereabouts using the same company the current owner of the car uses, so I'm happy with that. The chap I spoke to is a fellow [marque & model] licker so I of course told him to get himself on here.
