January 2021

January 9th, 2021 Spend: £0.00   Looking at the results of my spray painting and tears are welling up.  It's just the wrong time of season for spray paint; unless you can do it inside in a warm room maybe.  Cutting my losses and ordered some black vinyl wrap last week instead.  It's too cold in the garage to do this, so am moving into the dining room this weekend     January 10th, 2021 Spend: £13.48   Wrapped the panels and am now waiting for a deliv

And then there is of course the maintenance, so will be ordering all fluids and filters to replace.  Got to keep myself busy!

Meet Barney, the Mid-Life Crisis

November 3rd, 2020 Spend: £12,000   Whilst on holiday in France, with very little to do, I started to reflect on life and really missed having a V8 in it.  So a plan hatched; sell the Westfield, and buy a Seight!     I present to you: Barney   I'd spotted him on Ebay, but the auction disappeared before I sold my car.  On the off-chance it wasn't sold, I messaged the seller.  And as luck would have it, the original buyer had pulled out.  So I agreed t
