Oh dear still leaking. My siliconing skills are crap. When the rain stops I shall try again .

Car had its first crazy person today. We stopped at a crossing and a guy started hammering on the bonnet going nuts. I was doing about 15mph through town and driving politely so I don't understand. The bonnet was very tempted to hit him back.

Nope... Banana Bread :)

Gosh, I was so tempted by that lardy bread you had at the weekend Alasdair but then again if I had it would have had serious gastric repercussions :lol: :twisted:

Lard and sugar is the problem Alasdair....

That Banana Bread I brought down on Saturday contained no fats at all and just a bit of honey for sweetening... Got the recipe from a running magazine...

It might lack those ingredients but it does not lack taste ;)

You two made them, I should be the judge. Fairly impartial but open to bribes.

Bad day today but having read Zels blog it could have been far worse so I better not complain much.
I accidentally scratched the door and wing on my Xantia whilst cleaning the Van. I didn't notice the hose rubbing the Xantia until it was too late. It should cut out I think so no real harm done anyway but I definitely had a moment of internal rage when I noticed.

I've also put a nick in the leather of the steering wheel which has annoyed me and I've no idea how I've managed to do it.

This evening I took it into town to buy some dog treats, well and some James treats too. I ended up buying about a carrier bag full of food and after it was all scanned and bagged I couldn't find my wallet. The girl that served me was happy to put it aside while I nipped home for my wallet so I buzzed off back home only to find my wallet on the passenger seat just as I stopped to open the gate. Silly me hey, I'm a bit sore at the minute so I'm blaming my stupidity on that. Going to put myself mostly on paperwork tomorrow and try to take it easy over the weekend, which for me is easier said than done.

Ooh I like the sound of that, I've yearned for one of those for years.
I bet it's addictive and I have to buy one after I give it back.
