That is all. Merry Christmas all, and a Happy New Year for 2019 as well. Do not expect to be hearing from me in the near future.
With a clear win for April 13th-21st, and perhaps a not-so-clear win for the Three Frontiers, we officially have our date and location set for Europpomeet 2019.
A six month old lurcher/shepherd sort of thing who came all the to the UK from Romania via bus just 4 days ago. She is the latest addition to our family and has settled in pretty well, all things considered. She has got the sweetest nature, not an ounce of aggression or resource guarding, which is fantastic…

I needed to fault-find a possible flow issue, and after cocking up with the drill press, this was my next best option. Don’t worry though, there’s a new one coming on Monday.

I got my Land Rover back from the shop yesterday after my long weekend away. Only now have I realised what they had written on the back of the key tag.

Today I will be driving the Sa Calobra Road in Mallorca. My weapon of choice? A rental spec 2wd diesel Jeep Renegade, a car that I really wanted to like, but one which is full of niggly ergonomics and some woesome quirks. Does anyone care for a review? No? Moving on then.
Spotted this wee BMW Bertone Freeclimber whilst on a mini-hike up a Spanish mountainside. H/t to Chinny Raccoon for the ID!
