Today is the 10th anniversary of the Burd and I's first date. She appears to be a keeper!

We're currently in the £150 Audi, boot loaded thusly:

We're off on a quasi "Anniversary trip/kullekshun mission". This will be a slow burner - don't expect instant payoff, but hopefully it'll ultimately be worthwhile..

Next stop Tebay..

Chodspeed geezer. 

 

Glad to see old faithful toolbox still doing good service. It put a crease in the nearside wing of my MX5 when I achieved opposite lock on the roundabout near Dunblane forgetting it was in the boot.

Is that a Gunson easibleed i see? Anticipating bleeding the brakes at the roadside, now that’s being prepared!

“This ones for helping old people across the road, this ones for raising money for charity, that one there is for changing a Fiesta Zetec cambelt in the rain, and this ones for hammering smaller sockets over larger items”

Maybe we should have Autoshite badges? This ones for evading ISIS in order to buy a Renault 20 in Paris, one for removing 20p from a handbrake, that sort of thing?

Sorry, Freudian slip/autocorrect. If 320 comes back with a Ranchero I'll be licking it. After that it becomes mine.

This one's for changing a head gasket on a K series rather than putting K-Seal in it

This one's for going all the way to Romania for a car nobody wants even there

This one's for going all the way to Finland for a car everybody wants but nobody knows what it is

This one's for honouring an eBay bid you made while drunk for a badly described car with only one blurry photograph

This one's for driving that car home afterwards while hungover and fuelled only by a soggy train station sandwich

This one is for entering and losing 7 raffles in a row

This ones for topping up the coolant on a MGF with HGF using sparkling raspberry flavoured water because it's all you have to hand.

This ones for navigating your way to Shitefest following a trail of LHM. 

This ones for tying up an exhaust with the laces out your boots. 

This ones for jimmying up a drivers window with half a clothes peg.

We also went material shopping, though I was not allowed to buy fabric for recovering the GSA's interior.

This is the one for visiting France with Junkman.

 

EDIT: Lincolnshire always reminds me of Junkman, you see, which in turn always reminds me that France is closed when he goes there.
