    I woke up to some lovely Welsh sunshine today, so I had a choice of things to do with Bluebird, wash her or drive her? No brainer really and the hosepipe stayed coiled up, while I took to the road.
    A lovely blast around the Vale and coast.

    I couldn't wash my car because the water is off, but unfortunately I had to stay at home for my mate to come and sort computer and printer problems:(

    Tsk tsk. Poor form.
    The correct answer is: Wake up earlier, wash it AND drive it.





    And if you are @andyglym wash it AGAIN after the drive and before you can go back inside the house and have :beer
    :whistle:=))
