ST member now gone

Well Friday afternoon was a bad day, on the way back from picking up the other car from the garage the dear old Cavalier (Chav as it's affectionetly known) gave up the ghost.

Loss of power followed by what sounded like 30 spanners being shaken in a metal bucket signified that her work was done and it was time to put her out to pasture.

She is currently sat in a layby some 1 mile from home waiting for tthe scrap man to come and collect her.

So the Surf bus has gone and it's now time to see what else I can pick up with a £200 budget to ferry the boards and junk around so we don't messw up the decent car

So bow your heads in prayer as she's of to the crusher

I'm from a small village in Cheshire called Lymm, slap bang in the countryside that is between Liverpool and Manchester (that has grown recently due to footballers and the likes moving in)

I moved to West Wales to Specialtech nearly 2 years ago. I was their account Manager when I used to work for one of the biggest distributors in the UK. They got wind that I'd had enough and was thinking of moving to Spain or Australia to get away from teh rat race, so they offered me a job (a situation they probably regret now). The Wife and I visited for a weeks holiday, loved the plce, sold up and moved down and the rest is history.

I love every minute of it and couldn't be happier.

But my true roots lye as a very proud Englishman
