Look what came in the post from MX5 parts today! It is half price at the moment! Glorious I know. Yep it will change my life. Just look below and see.
Erm the fuel fill cap before.....
The fuel filler cap after!
Something to admire and to take my mind off how much fuel actualy goes into this car.
I know, I know, you can't wait to see it in real life ;)

Monday night I stayed in and watch Chasing Amy. Well it covered a couple of hours before bed time that covers that film I think. Tuesday and I managed to force myself to go swimming with Rog. Not that I did more than 30 minutes worth. I did feel knackered after that 30 mins mind.
If there one anoying thing its the motorway being closed on Sunday night. Its another for someone to crash on Monday morning and get the M6 motorway closed again. It was 10am by the time I got to work. I loved Andrew Goldsmith on WM constantly asking the highways agency if the M6 toll could drop the toll charge today to get the midlands area moving again - but it was going knowhere, something about it being a commercial venture and it being upto them. I vote for more toll motorways. They all should be toll motorways. So I didn't leave work till late and used all the residentail back routes, past all those schools, all those speed bumps just as I used to n Thurdays ad Fridays all those years back to get to the M5 at west Brom. It was easy sailing up the M5 and M6 from there.
HERES TO TOLLING THE MOTORWAYS AND RUNNING RIOT ON THE BACKROADS

Sunday I woke up at 7:15am. A bit different from yesterday then. This ment only one thing - I should go to Lincoln afterall. So I got up got my Dad's Sat Nav out and programmed it up. Outside things looked bleak weatherwise but I got the roof down and got the throttle open.
Humming around was a spitfire.
Was it going to shoot us?
Round and round it flew.
It waved goodbye and then headed off into the distance.
In the distance the Cathedrale of Lincoln could be seen. But after all those exotic Cathedrales in Italy this was surely not worth seeing. So I didn't.
Down there were some dinky cars and some Dodgems!
Some cars on show.
Some maxed out cars.
I dunno - the feild seems to be full of strange small cars.
Ah look there my car in the crowd of other normal cars. When I had turned up I was asked if I wanted to enter it in one of the competitions. I looked over my shoulder and thought I havn't even washed this for 3 weeks for god's sake love - how would it win a competition?
I hold on and look down!
I've got the shakes or is it just the wind.
I'm this far north I might as well call someone on the phone. Erm they arn't in right now. Well I head west and to the pennines. Well kind of. That Sat Nav takes me for a right detour (it seems to like motorways) and then through the heart of shefield. We get there though, Somewhere like the Devils Arse.
Well we're in an area of natural beuty so its time to bore you with some photos :)
Look no car!
Another carless photo.
I reprogram the sat nav for Stockport and off we go - I do love the open road.
Especialy when its cloudy.
There went the clouds and it was soon goodbye open roads. Yep one long traffic jam to Stockport. What could be so exciting that so many people want to get there?
A quick stop for another tank of fuel (I only filled it yesterday at Tesco's) and a chicken sandwhich for me at £2.19 - Aparently I could have had a full meal for £2.49 but I just wanted an quick bite - the assistant though I was barmy when I said no I don't want the drink or crisps for that extra 30p. (Me tiught or what).
Well this is Deadmanjones and Zoe's house. Its on a long street but thankgod for Bargain Booze! He came home, jumped in the car and we then headed off to a pub somewhere for a birthday meal with Zoe's family. It was late when I got home, the M6 was slow and even closed between junction 6 and 5.
