    There was a plan.... Tax 1st April, get serviced, sort out paint job.....enjoy!

    Sun was shining last week so why wait? Visited post office this morning, wallet is £225 lighter and SORN is gone!. Zed is getting the covers taken off tomorrow and I get an extra 3 weeks to enjoy it!

    Has the sun had that effect on anybody else?

    Mines taxed and available 365 days a year. Had the roof down twice today, and a good blast around Swindon yesterday (via McD's) :)

    To appreciate the 'top down' weather on the Sandringham trip tomorrow, have taxed Mora at 11.45am today, just in time before the Post Office closed. She has been in the garage, sorned since last Nov.

    We were going to take Monty, but when we went to tax him on online on 28/02, the site said it couldn't find an MOT?? It only ran out the same day!!! So this morning we took him to Benson's at St Ives and were shocked to find that he failed on the Brake pipes!! Bloody frustrating as only a fortnight ago, the brake warning light came up, but, the very same Benson's said that there was nothing wrong with them!!!! Talk about livid, could have got them done then and avoided all this agro. We left Monty there and came home in a courtesy car, but have to collect him Tuesday night, a bit too late for the great weather this weekend, but we will love the day out with Mora!!

    Will be good picnicing with the crew again!

    Spent all day in the zed yesterday. Even had the tonneau cover on, looked great.

    Had brunch at a Dorchester country house hotel. Should have taken my proper camera as it's a fantastic place for a shoot.

    Oh, and to answer your question, mines taxed all year, I love winter drives in the sun, top down.
