    Come ,Sunday we are off, sold car and collected, got Tez's tablets for 6 months ,no commitments in good old UK.
    France first then quickly through Spain to the south coast of Portugal for the winter whoopy!!
    Just booked a single on ferry will decide next year when we are coming back, no need until the MOT and service next June to keep up the warranty.
    I know most of you don't know us as we don't rally much but just wanted to tell someone as we are excited, never driven through Spain or Portugal before, suppose it's a lot like France to drive through,
    they drive on the right,erm right?
    Just a few euros to collect on Friday, that's it job jobbed.

    Just a few to get us through the first couple of days, then get some out of a ATM over there with our caxton fx card for free.
    115 to the £ at the moment, made a mistake last time, got them from Thomas Cook on the high street, 108 to the £.

    Great stuff, we did much the same a couple of years ago and we are loving the life, currently back in the UK getting the dreaded MOT completed and collecting the post dated Green Card for the jaunt to Morocco in the new year. Looking to leave UK at the end of next week to make the journey down to the S of Europe so will not be far behind you, maybe our paths will cross, we do wear the yellow sticker !!

    Got a tip from a pharmacist, ask for 3 months on your regular prescription and then pay for 3 months private prescription.
    Tez got worried that he couldn't have them posted or got lost in the post or if royal mail would even take them in the post.
    Have to pay for the tablets though on the private script.
    Better than being without, Tez said.

    If you are going to be in Spain, remember you can buy many English prescription tablets over the counter and lots of time the price is very good.

    If you pm me with name of tablet and strength, I will ask at my local chemist for you.
