Hi Clo

Just waiting around now for the ‘wag to be ready. The Smart Car has been MOT’d & the trailer is at SMC where they are prepping the van.

Our list of jobs is being sorted on top of the MOT & servicing. Good thing is that SMC say that it should sail thru the MOT. However, there are a couple of issues. We need 2 new leisure batteries as they are not holding their charge. £90. Also the alloy wheels are badly rusted & need either shotblasting or replacing. We’ve decided to replace as its about the same cost. Steel or new alloys? We’ve gone for alloys – £400!!!

Never mind, this will be our primary home for nearly a year. Can’t afford to mess about. Needed to sort out insurance for the Smart and NFU are very good. The Post Office – who I was with were taking the mickey – so we’ve dumped them.
So, we are now just waiting til we can pick up the van on Wednesday or Thursday & then its off to Market Rasen for the Autotrail Factory Rally & 200+ wags on the racecourse. Then its off to Norwich on Sunday, then West Mersea for a week & Canterbury for 8 days till we catch the ferry on polling day – 6 May.

Can’t wait to get going now. Garden is sorted & a bloke is painting the front of the house. Arranging for a new boiler for June so that should just about be it. Rob will sort out any trivia. Had the first BBQ of the summer on Saturday to celebrate the Clarets first away win. Too little too late I think. We also got 1st, 2nd & 4th on the National.

Mums now taking all the clothes she wants as we have the Smart to fill up!:Doh:

Speak soon
