    Nice :)
    Sod that Rob, I'll just be building a lean too on the side of the garage and having an outdoor, undercover narrow gauge estate railway instead. Or I might buy a marquee and just cover the whole garden :D

    Well I spent yesterday in freezing Telford waiting for uncle Marsa's car to be finished ( a real posh motor) cos his wifey says he can't drive at the moment and was I frozen, icicles hanging off me extreme bits including the padded overhang

    Hi Steve,

    best of luck with the journey - there's about 50mm on the ground here and it's still coming down. I have to take aged Auntie shopping at 09.00 - I might be gone for some time.............................

    Grey skies, snow and slush; my previous gloating re. sunshine may have been premature.

    Copped it quite badly round our way (West Mids) last night and Liverpool... usual car drivers bricking it out on empty-but-snow-covered motorways at silly o'clock. Sure they'll have more tales of "mad lorry drivers" to tell today :rolleyes: .... not mad, mate, just experienced.:headbang: Get a move on or stay at home!!!

    Oh yes I was up at silly o'clock this morning to behold the white stuff had a hold and then spent nearly an hour having loads of fun deliberately sliding and slipping weaving and skidding all the way to work. the roads all to my self what a way to start the day:thumbs:

    What gets me is the cold. The older diesels can be a so-and-so to start - the Australian version of EASY START makes it more fun though, especially if you sing along Whistle.gif

    We had almost 2 inches of the white stuff in rural Shropshire, but all roads lead to the SVR Spring Gala, and I managed to get to Kidderminster without too much trouble. It was very, very cold with sleet and rain at times, but the pub warmed us up.

    Here's a small selection of my photos- some just oily details that caught my eye.
