Hear hear! Nothing near as serious as many of you, but as someone with an almost chronic insomnia problem and the resulting impact that has on daily energy (and motivation) I can really see where you come from. It's immensely frustrating having a massive list of things you want and/or need to do, but never seeming to have the energy to actually *do* 90% of them. Sadly the human body just does not function properly on an average of 1-3 hours sleep a night.

Really hope you're feeling better soon, Jim. If there's anything I can do to help, even if it's just to pop over for a natter just give us a shout, I'm just down the road. Likewise you're always welcome here to drop by for a tea/coffee and a chat! Will drop you a PM with the address.

Zel, thanks :-D That really is very appreciated :-D

Still not good this morning but hopefully after a (shorter then usual) swim and a bit of karate practice I'll feel a bit better.

Back to work after a very enjoyable week off...

Team WFA are on site and have commenced the V6 engine removal part of my V6 Activa conversion :-D Feeling very useless as there's nothing, bar keeping them fed and watered, I can do to assist...

Still not anywhere near well :( Or rather well enough to wield spanners around...

You just keep the kettle on the boil and the home made cakes coming and they will be fine. You can look and not touch. Is this the engine for a 205? [emoji12] [emoji23]

Although I feel very guilty about it Davie, that's exactly what I'm doing... On their strict orders...

Not quite.... My engine is not yet out although it's not too far away thanks to the supreme efforts of the two fully-fit members of Team WFA :-D :-D

Nothing very strenuous done today, just a clean up of the wanted components removed and a tidy of the workshop.

The rest of the day has been spent at Karate training and out in the lovely sunshine on a very lovely bike ride...

:-D

They might respond to offers of much money Mike :wink:

Else, you could move down this way...

Mike, put all three on a long loader, unload outside Jim's at 6pm leaving a Road Race bike in each one and a packet of lentils, pizza dough, stay in a Travel Lodge till 8am the next day, the cars will be fixed....Jim has Elves in his garage :)

I think Chris should be given a pair of pointy hooded overalls complete with bell to use during wfa spannering.
I'm sure he would love them..........in time

I think all of us of Team WFA should adopt that as a uniform Dean!
