I'm looking forward to reading your column Steve, especially with your humour applied to it :lol:

I really must learn to keep my mouth shut and my hands in my poockets, still, I have a couple of hings in the pippe line for the column, however, I have'nt decided which to do yet.

You'll all just have to wait and see,.........actually a bit like me.

**EDIT trying to reply on your mobile is not a good idea :roll: hings? (whatever they are) should be things :wink:

Kev, thanks :wink: I'm dreading it :roll: I really must get my a*** in gear, and get started, Just been so busy this weekend, and NO Citroening :shock: :shock: :shock: apart from a couple of bits of driving the car, I've got a Transit Van on hire at the moment as we are emptying Sarah's Mum's place after her passing away in June last year, 2 x 8 ton high sided skips worth of crap (how much stuff can one woman have??), at the same time Sarah's sister and her boys are doing some work on their house, patio, general decrap, so plenty of running around.

The Transit, whilst, more practical than the C6 is nowhere near as comfy, nor does it give the same acceleration, On the C6 front, I've got some work to do, Sarah has been driving it and I noticed a scraupe on the front bumper, it looks like somebody has 'brushed' past it. I think it will polish out so not overly concerned, If I can't manage it, I know 'a man than can' :wink: who I understand gives exceptionally good rates to his mates (especially those building his website). :-D

I'm off to Lancaster tomorrow and Friday and a day in London on Thursday (First Class on a Virgin Pendolino [for the enthusiasts amongst you]) then trying to get a couple of days off work on the 23rd and 24th May for a flying visit to Bristol, where Sarah's Aunty is recovering from a stroke (and that will be in the C6 =D> =D> )

I have managed to do a couple of jobs, but I'm saving those for the first column...............

I'm looking forward to it too :) Have you worked out yet just how many CCC Columnists are members of this forum?

Steve, honestly it's not so bad once you get started. I find it's the getting started bit that's tricky and then it just flows :roll:

I'm going to try a new tack this month and that's writing bits as they occur rather than my old method of doing it all in one big hit a few days (or more recently day in the singular) before deadline...

Had a lovely surprise in my email inbox this morning. An almost complete column written by a correspondent in the right format and everything. In fact all ready to forward to the editor... :-D :-D

Now now! [-X

I'm going to have a word with Chris about ghost-writing you a piece on his XM for your column. That should almost make up more or less a full one for you :wink:

I must get a load of pictures from him and have a natter about his trials and tribulations in true 'scoop' reporter fashion... Although in truth I know most of them...

Would that be OK?

As I need to do very little to put mine together and it keeps raining....

Steve, I wish I could do the same for you but all I can write on the C6 is 'Wow, I love the cream interior!' hardly a column really :roll:

Ohhh, I forgot about Chris having a XM in the past.

Steve can rely on Chris for input into his column, he has contributed in the past.

I saw a couple of C6s 3.0 HDis at Citromobile with the lovely tobacco coloured leather! All very CX Prestige.

I think the tobacco coloured C6 interior is the best, classy and different.

I saw a 3.0HDi C6 the other day, it belongs to the guy who runs the C4 owners forum, very nice it was too! 8-)

Personally, I don't like like it, though I suppose it would look OK in the Metallic Gold car......

Dave also runs C6Owners forum, a throughly nice chap, on a side note, he blames me for him getting that one, He didn't like the idea of the wooden bins in the Exclusive until he saw the cream leather and wood together.

You have been warned [-X that's why Dean stays away from the C6, he reckons I'd sell him one and he wouldn't know he'd bought it..... :lol: :lol: :lol:

On a side note, I started writing this morning, JEEZ...... I didn't realise how much I prattle on when writing something #-o it looked like War and Peace this morning......... feel the need to edit befoore the editor....... :-D

No, not that Chris Robert! I was meaning Chris570 and his epic adventures...

And that's why I steer well clear Steve.. I just know what would happen....

And never worry about how much you've written. It always looks a lot less in print and besides, a good lot of entertaining words is good and I know all your words will be Steve...

Well, Column written and sent, so that's that done :-D

The car's all clean and polished ready for tomorrow, Planning to arrive around 3ish, set up the tent and take it from there, let's hope that the weather holds.

Excellent stuff Steve :-D Mine's done too... We both beat the deadline and can look upon Chris's reminder email with smug satisfaction when it arrives.

Looking forward to reading your first. Mine's a bit special this month as I didn't write most of it :lol: :lol: :lol: ...

Enjoy Wetherby and sorry I won't be there this year, looks like it's going to be a cracking weekend for it too. Not like the gale-force winds of last year! I suppose it was just a gentle breeze to the locals....

What surprised me was how quickly it came together :shock: I already had some stuff I wanted to include, but once I written that, It was where to go next, thankfully a couple of people 'chipped' in. and I have a 'dussy' of a story for August :lol: :lol:

Anyway, time to make Sarah a brew, it's her birthday today and as I'm going over to Wetherby for the weekend, I suppose I'd better be nice, or she won't give me any spend's :wink:

Guy's once again, thanks for your support, on taking over the column, I just hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it =D>
