Re: Nothing In Particular

From what I gather, DVLA seem to be making efforts to make the modification of motor vehicles away from manufacturers original specifications illegal. Any modified vehicle that they have not been informed about could be due a visit from a DVLA inspector and the owner banned from using the vehicle on...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Towards the end of Autumn 2023 I had intended to replace both front suspension struts on the CRV, but the parts got lost in transit, and by the time they got to me Winter had started.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Mum was allocated a home to recuperate after hospital, and the 4 week placement runs out on 14th May.

I'd like her to stay where she is, but they have no vacancies. :(

So now I need to find somewhere nice for her.

Seems the average cost is circa £1,500 per week. :shock:

Have you still got the drill press you had of me?
Yes indeed, it's in my conservatory. Most useful piece of equipment.

I was on my way home from seeing Mum and did a short diversion to see your old gaff. :)
