Couldn't mistake his stupid grin, and that f**king hat :-D

Glad it made you laugh :cheers:

A further laugh is to say that I asked Team LEC to step outside the pub before I played the clip due to it's NSFW aspect which generated the following comment from Martin:

"This must be something that you're wife can't see either then?"

My reply was "No, actually my wife sent it to ME!" :lol:

Pembrokeshire County Council finally gave approval for my small extension project (second time of submission), and it only took them from March until today to do so.....

..... Perhaps as well, as I submitted full plans to Building Control a month ago, and have been speaking to the builders regularly concerning start dates....

.... now just need to sort out the ground workers availlability and that may well be weather dependent at this time of year.

Still, at least in Wales the PP remains valid for 5 years (I always thought it was 2), so there's no rush......

.... but I still want it done by Christmas.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

If the Welsh builders are as efficient as the Welsh planners, then even that may be a bit optimistic...... still, on Saturday we've been here a year, so time is flying by.

A couple of months ago, in the period of about a week, I spotted an Esprit (also a number of Ferrari's, an old Lambo from the seventies, some German and some Japanese sports cars) coming the other way on the freeway, there must have been a classic car rally on. A British racing green M100 less the 1km from my home, an original Elan hardtop coupe on the same freeway, and an Elise.

That was the most Loti I'd seen on the roads of Melbourne in such short a period, spring must be sports car season! :D

Thanks for the grammar tips there Rambo :roll: , one day this Aussie will learn to speak this English language you guys speak over the other side of the planet! :lol:
Yep Alan e, the weather down here in spring can be very changeable, as an example, today is a 27 degree day with an afternoon thunder storm predicted and, lots of rain tomorrow and then a 16 degree Wednesday. If you don't like the weather, hang around for a few hours, it's bound to be different! :bonk:
