    Got up bright and early this morning, and what a gorgeous day - spent ALL day cleaning the MoHo exterior,,,,,, seemed never bloody ending. However, looking out the window now it looks stunning, gleaming, shiny and just waiting for the seagulls to come home to roost after a day stealing kebabs and ice creams, then dropping the whole digested lot - it will miss everything else and hit the MoHo for sure.
    :Angry:

    Anyone else done the same/similar today?

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :winky:

    Unfortunately not. :Sad:

    Udo's back in his heated garage storage until May. Probably. Maybe.

    But he was properly cleaned on Thursday. Tyres satiny shiny, too.

    Perfect day for cleaning, though. :thumb:

    I spent half the day cutting the grass in the CL then the other half dismantling the mower because the darn drive belt broke. Oh well hopefully get a replacement in the morning and finish the last little bit ready for some funsters to arrive on Weds/Thursday. First booking of the season actually arrives tomorrow. so I hope the sunshine holds out. Hard work this retirement lark.

    Spent a couple of days last week cleaning the M/H, First time since end of October:Sad:
    Looking A1 now ready for swanking it at Chester:ROFLMAO:

    Seagulls ain't the problem here in "clay country" it's the dust from the bloody Clay Pit Spoil tip, about a mile away, the local Primary School has a dust meter, the clay Company is allowed 30 infringments per year, they only start to worry at 27:Sad:

    They were all at their parents wedding!!!:Blush:

    what i did today

    Went to mates garage so I could put my Mx5 on his ramp. My horn had packed in and I decided to fit a Stobel 12v electric air horn.
    Much easier to do "up in the air" as you have to remove the plastic engine under tray !! the bloody thing is held on by,
    14x 6mm hex head screws,
    10 plastic push poppers
    6 x 10mm hex bolts
    Bloody ridiculous amount of fittings !! once of had to disconnect old horn, modify the steel bracket, fit new horn !! 150 decibels !!! goy fed up of cars, trucks ect carving me as I am so low so now when I toot them they will hear it and get out of the way .
    Once all put back together again it was the roof down in brilliant sunshine and then we both went for a run over the "Cairn o Mount" to Banchory, then down to Braemar on to Glenshee, Blairgowrie and then back to Dundee.
    Had a fan run out and did not even have to use my new horn !! will probably have it on the trailer to the Peterborough show in a couple of weeks.

    I had a fab day clearing out everything from my kitchen and loading up everything I think we will need for when we set off touring in May. Less than 2 weeks until I retire which is the day before Peterborough so that will be a great weekend of celebration. Motorhome is all loaded and still lots of space for the last minute bits and our clothes and food. Getting really excited now ::bigsmile:

    Spent all day unloading the van after our trip to Morocco and Spain

    It's bloody freezing here! ( well it's not really but it feels like it now that my blood has thinned out from all that sun!)

    I'll get round to cleaning the van tomorrow. It'll be an all day job by the time I've cleaned the roof and hoovered all the Sahara sand out of the lockers and cupboards. And I'll have to take everything out of the garage to clean that as well. Not looking forward to it. :Angry:
