Hope you all have fun with it! I'd love to be there for the first train but unfortunately exams next week mean I'm phoning in sick until the June meet.

Colour me impressed that they got that round the corner!

That was the easy bit! Full gory details coming soon in the Containershite thread over on the open forum.

Never mind me, I've just looked at the pictures again and realised where the container has ended up, so much easier. For some reason I'd forgotten that part of the yard* exists, and that the lorry had gone round by the black Range Rover.

I'd still struggle to get an artic through there mind.

I’m going to Beaulieu on Saturday and possibly my birthday family visit on Sunday. Have a good weekend.

if you need anything from the spring autojumble let me know. I like something to look for in the stalls.

I wonder if @Six-cylinder's Ami will be there? having driven a 2CV im quite eager to see what the 2 major derivative types are like in comparison :) (although I dont know if the actual field portion is available? or if its full of lambs again!)

so I am more then happy to help* out, especially so if I can blag a drive around the FoD :) not that I can claim to be any good at mechanical work, it took me about one and a half hours just to replace the ground strap on my car...

regardless I am pleased to hear the Dyane will be visiting once more I was disappointed in myself that I missed it the last 2 times, so hopefully 3rd times the charm!

same with @Crackers's in the Landy, after I missed @mat_the_cat's visit with his Landy! I am glad there will still be one there for me to look over :)

For Saturday evening Mr6C has prepared a pile of fire wood for the enclosed garden fire pit.

Shame your not insured as it wouldn't probably be more fortuitous to just set fire to that entire pile there then claim you don't know how it started... 

I'm starting to come round to the idea of maybe camping over now.

Ami will be there.

Bad news on the field, while there are no animals at the moment, where the heavy horses have been in the field it is very bumpy. I took the Mercedes 230TE out into the field the other day and it is so rough that I would not want any of my cars driven around it. 

Anybody with a 20 Ton roller please bring it with you!

May or may not be able to drop by this weekend. 

Have a family work commitment tomorrow which is going to be a huge stressor for me so really can't gauge whether I'll be in the right sort of headspace to deal with socialising come the weekend yet.

Not even me that's involved, really does hit home how fragile my mental state is these days sometimes.

Today was supposed to be a regular workday 9-5, but I wanted to move some cars around and had to do that during normal working hours.

First car to start was 230TE just to move it out of the way.

Next was the E320 Coupe to storage partly as transport to get there and partly to ease the drive congestion. 

The 2CV was prebooked for MOT so after a jump start I drove it home and snapped a photo with my Ami. Then forward to my favourite garage who are dealing with the MOT, service and air filter we blew up.

For my return they had my MOTed, serviced and tyre replaced M3 ready for me. One the way back I had it cleaned. and while in was being done I popped into the garage in Winslow who had agreed to arrange another MOT and they asked me what I was bringing. I declined to answer! 

I manged to find a sports ground car park to take some fresh pictures of the M3 ready to advertise it more widely.

I then put the M3 back in storage to keep it clean and because I needed to get there for my next move.

Next was another jump start and a lumpy idle, this time the BiTurbo 425 I have been itching to drive again. It ran like a pig and I think the brakes were also dragging, but we made it. Even with it in front of the garage I was asked what is it?

For my next movement the MG Metro was ready so I got to drive it home with its new MG decals. I have kept it out for the weekend so it will visit the FoD and may do the high speed fish and chip run Saturday night.

I never did get to start work today, cars are much more fun!
