Car booty in a taxi.

I took a load of stuff to the local car boot,Julies Car boot at Burgh Castle.There didn't seem much to take at first so I just loaded it in the taxi but ended up pretty much filling the old girl.When it's all laid out it looks pretty nigh impossible to get it all back in it.
I didn't do too bad getting rid of some gear that there wouldn't really have been a place for at the new home.I don't like the Kessingland car boot,although its closer they tend to squeeze you up together and have all sorts of sily rules about where you can go and what times you're allowed to go on,I can do without a load of petty aggro first thing on a sunday morning.

Still waiting to move

I'm still awaiting the exchange of contracts to move house.Lots of work to do in the new place and years of accumulated junk and clutter to sort out.Then its time to think about MOTs on the cars and transit and sorting out somewhere to move the business to.
can't wait.

Must be summer,the heaters working.

I haven't had much time to do any work on the Rover P5b for a while.One thing I did do was have another go at getting the heater to work.I'd already taken off the heater pipes and flushed it through and set the levers as per the manual.Someone suggsted the internal flaps might be seized so I had another go at taking off all the levers and cables,freed off the spindles and reconneted everything,it seems to be working although I've yet to take it for a long run,too busy at the moment getting ready to move.
Filling the radiator on these cars has to be done in a certain way,topping up with the engine hot and ticking over otherwise they have air locks in the cooling system that cause all sorts of problems.

I've just agreed to buy a new place.Loads of stuff to sort out,stuff to move and all the aggro of changing adress but I'm really pleased to be moving out of the town.
Lowestoft has been my home and work place for over twelve years but the past few years with the councils attitude to small business have been a nightmare.
Jack,my best mate died the other day.He was getting on in years and had been losing weight but his death came as a horrible shock.He died in his bed,outside the beadroom with his mate George just a few feet away.
I buried him in a garden,rest in peace big fella.
