Then I drove in a Porsche Caymen which had paddle shift (Which I thought was easy), I then drove in a 5 liter Ford Mustang ( I stalled it at first) boy was that fun, I should have drive as a passenger in a GT Cup car.

But while we were waiting for my drive the said GT Cup car came into the pits and the Driver and passenger got out PDQ as it was smokeing like a old steam train.

My sister ask what was happening and they said they have a plan B but don't know what it was.

Well plan B was 2 lap with Tiff Needell in a BMW M4, boy was it scary, so the racing line and he drifted around many corners, even my bum hole gripped the seat , I also got his autograph, he was very frendly.

The way he drove the M4 he had to fill up every 3o minutes, and tyres 2/3 times a day.
Bloody BMW drivers!

Proud of my lad (he’s 27).

Did his first Triathlon yesterday - 750m open water swim, 20k bike ride, then 7.5k run.

Even if you divided those by 10, I'd struggle

Blooming heck Hugh, where have the years gone!!!!! It only seems like a couple of years since he was leaving school. Good on him for surviving his first Triathlon.

Having recently completed my ongoing insurance claim for burst pipe flooding I was pleasantly surprised to receive an insurance renewal quote just £30 more than the previous year - still under £300 for buildings and contents.

This after them paying out over £140,000.

Maybe a claim for a camera won't be so bad after all.

Was meant to do Jury Service next week but I have been excused.

Happy thought for me and the competency of the criminal justice system in general I think.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Sister is now seeing our Dad's true colours as his white lies as he calls them have finally bit him in the arse but I certainly was not going to take the fall. Oh well one thing for sure they really are two peas in a pod.

Best birthday gift I could have, even if it is a day early

True colours are shining through for all to see.

Well done son I'm so proud of you.
