A few jobs need looking at in the few weeks as we get ready for winter. The (as previously mentioned) needs to cure the small crack in the screen and the chassis needs and treating too.

Writing this I’ve that the annual service and MOT is looming which means a few won’t be getting Christmas this year as it seems I a lot to pay for.

While using the car as transport is fun, I fear excitement may wane once the truly sets in. At the moment been browsing the classifieds for hacks up to Ј1,000.
