From just a couple of questions they can pull up all your details. .I said to the lady I bet you even know what I had for breakfast don’t you. It’s all so quick nowadays. And painless. I was dreading a large hike in premiums for it. But no. It’s just an extra £35 plus the dreaded admin charge. So I am well pleased. It’s all ready now for Wednesday lunch time. As soon as I get the cover note I will drop it in. Ive been researching the car on web. It is not a boy racer car, but economic and reliable. Thats all I wanted really apart from being higher and easier to get in and out of. So we are well pleased. I think this will be my last car. I am sure it will now outlast me. If I get 5 years out of it I will be hitting nearly 80 and I can’t see me still driving then. The roads are bad enough now.But this is it , one owner ,under 13k on the clock, immaculate.
We took a ride to Minis bay to give Louis a run. Its changed a bit since my last visit about a year ago. There used to be a a little caffee at the end to get a bag of chips and a cup of coffee. But whenI walked in it today, its been re built , now it enters into a posh bar. I was lost ,can I help you came a voice. Yes maybe, I was looking for a bag of chips,can I get them from you, or next door?. What next door she asked. It was a small restaurant now all in one.
While we sat outside waiting ,we read the menu. Oh dear. A plate of fish food for one £45. If you want a plate of fish food and a drink for 2 its £72. Beer was £4 a pint.
We over heard a group of 4 who were shocked at the bill. A drink and a plate of sandwiches. £15 for the drink and £48 for the platter.
It’s a shame ,I don’t recon they get many return visitors.
Anyway we walked right up on the cliffs and sat in the sun for a while, before walking back. Mave said it’s as much as she can do. So we then headed home. Where guess what we had a cup of tea. Sat in front of the box nodded off for an hour, at least I did when I woke up mave was in the den.
Ah! such is life. I emailed the garage to let them know the insurance was sorted and to thank them for the way yesterdays sale was conducted , also to ask if there was a power skt for the sat nav because I could not see one. I got a nice response and assurances that it did have a socket on the dash.
Of all the cars parked along the front we didn’t see one like ours.
We are getting ready for the london trip on the early morning fast train tomorrow. So it will be a long day and my next posting could well be a short one.
