Well, it gets better... my must be done today covid tests were misdirected due to a postcode typo. They won't come until Monday...

I have had to locate a local tester who can do me tomorrow morning at a cost of somewhere between 'how much!?!?!?' and 'you must be f*kin' avin' a larf'

Mr Barnacle is currently getting his ear bent and is not in a happy place grr

Dug the Coupe out of my garage to make sure things are OK a wee bit early. All seems fine apart from drivers front tyre loosing some air. So a trip into Inverness to get it reseated and checked. Depending on conditions and traffic, I will have a journey time of four and a half to five hours. To me this is part of the enjoyment. smile Safe journey to you all, and will see you on Saturday….. driving

Good plan Jim, my "warm-up" is tomorrow morning, the two hours travel for us on Saturday is a mere spit across tarmac compared to your trip, hope the roads are clear for you.

Hopefully it is, so far, for us...

Some measures just introduced in England have been standard fare north of the border throughout, e.g. mask-wearing indoors (wherever) and on public transport, so for us porridge-gobblers it'll be pretty much more of the same.

Unfortunately not for me. I'm in a position of at least waiting for pcr test results if not also having to go and get my own done. Either way I won't have an all clear by tomorrow.

Apologies to Rob for having to pull out at short notice, and to everyone else that I won't make it.

I need to square some stuff away with you Simon but I'll pm you.

That’s a shame some not being able to attend. In all honesty I’m not really all that surprised. I’ve been triple jagged plus flu jag. My wife was not keen for me to go because of our son who has to be shielded. However I’ve managed to negotiate when home I will isolate myself from our son for a few days.

I took the Coop into Inverness this morning to remedy the front tyre loosing some air, it just needs reseated. Five garages later, all too busy, next week at the earliest. This was me into town at eight. Loosing the plot, I decided to purchase a can of tyre sealer and try that. In the middle of Halfords car park I did the deed. So far so good. You just couldn’t make it up, every place I went, young lad on the phone, then when I asked about just needs reselling the tyre, sharp intake of breath and barely words that are difficult to understand followed by a laugh and no chance until next week. Aaaah!!!! suicide
