The kids lasted until 2:43 a.m. so legitimate Secret Santa opened through bleary eyes…
A bit of bit of bling
Some fine* china and a very useful (genuinely) mini screwdriver set as Mrs ODM has been threatening to pilfer my gear for a “House set of tools”
and the piece de la resistance…a highly treasured Norwood anniversary bowling club key ring.
Well shit, that's over 9 threats!
A triple collection thread. All MOTd. All possibly starting. All presumably stopping.
The collection train starts in Glasgow at 12.15 picking up 2x shiters. A further shiter will be collected on the way.
4 shiters. 440 miles. 7hrs. Live updates in 3hrs if anyone can be bothered posting
Well lets hope there's joy to be had somewhere.
I think it's only been 2 weeks since the last car left so of course it's time to get another one... I didn't even know I wanted it until midnight Thursday/Friday. The alarm rings at 6am tomorrow, this will be the longest distance (non-international) collection yet, and the second oldest car I have ever owned...

Just when you thought it was safe to look at a collection thread. Soon will follow a dramatic story of a desperate man with a quest, against all odds, to have a running car in his possession by the end of the day. He will battle crowds of shoppers, day trippers and other hazards…

What actually will follow is a man heading across London on several trains and (hopefully) driving back around the M25 to put his new purchase into storage and SORNing it until 1st of July. It won’t be exciting, and it may put you to sleep after your Sunday roast.

antihistamine count = 1

Yes, I admit it. I have a problem. Far too many problems, in fact, and all four wheeled.
Unfortunately, I also have a fully equipped workshop, plenty of parking spaces and a fully comprehensive trader’s policy, all of which combine to only facilitate my problem.
Here we go again….
