    ermmm ...... nope, all the copper work is done - have been busy making the house look sellable, looks like we might have found a cash buyer local - so no agent fees, and no chain - think it's time i started looking for another car transporter - was aiming to drive it up but it's looking like it'll not be finished in time - ah well I needed a trailer anyways

    Mine's at college studying motorsport mechanics, i couldn't quite convince her to go study at land rover. She bought me a project vehicle for my birthday, so it's all her fault.
