Heavy night? not so much drink as driving - I went to a gig in stanley, then drove a bunch of drunks to a nightclub, then took them all home, then drove back to boro. Didn't have a drop all night, still had a hangover this morning. I need to not live 50 miles from my work and social life,

We've already got a picasso. I use it as a van. A quick van with good aircon and a big glass sunroof.
Ozzy Mandeus
Sat Jun 24, 2017 6:57 pm
Tl;dr: Dad, can we buy an Picasso?

When the (probably original) cambelt goes I might just get another

So many things I would have had to hire a van to do, but haven't. https://flic.kr/p/URAp7g wish it had a sunroof tho.

Sat Jun 24, 2017 6:23 pm
Currently on day 5 of emptying my house. I am even more convinced that a decent xsara Picasso is just about the best car you can get. I like sitting up high and i like vans, but still. It's so good and was so cheap.

Message conversation with conor. Dad, Can we buy a Ford Maverick? Eww, no! Why would you want one of those? Whats wrong with it? It's a nissan terrano with a ford badge. No it isn't (pictures of muscle car) Ahhh. I thought you'd gone funny in the head. Still no though.

Google maps likes the logo to fit in a circle, sign makers like ones that work as a banner. My designer did both.

thanks for sorting the back door despite the close proximity of the wishing well.

Thu Jun 08, 2017 10:32 pm
Yeah, I think a few people didn't believe it had a wishing well

I can confirm it has seats. And a wishing well.

Swish. Is it a posh one or does it have hessian seats?

What's your diary looking like tomorrow Ozzy? Would be nice to get a pair of knowledgeable eyes over it before I travel hundreds of miles in it, but assuming it makes it back from Londonium today...

I'm hoping it's going to be very practical and economical. Pics later, maybe; it doesn't lock and I need to leave it in londinium overnight

Tue Jun 06, 2017 3:05 pm
could you live in it if for completely improbable reasons your house purchase still wasn't complete?
