Winter is right Jim....ive just got back from my sisters house. The shed ashfelt has been ripped off and im going nowhere near it today....hope the roof doesnt go with it [-o<

Its one of those days today when i just cant get warmed up.....a hot bath should do it :wink:

The van was done out of love.....not love of work....just love of a clean vehicle :roll:

I need a new car to play with....Just been out in the Xantia....its great and all but its the longest ive ever owned a car and ive got the itch for something new...an XM would be nice :wink:
