  1. Now you are all just being norty!
  2. Awww, thanks for the lovely birthday wishes everybody! I have had a wonderful day today. Ben took me to see the farm we are moving to and we walked through the woodland and fields. Our family is leaving the New Forest after 50 years and starting a new life in the most glorious spot in North Devon. We have found a lovely spot which will accommodate both of us and my parents. Geoffrey is going to be spoilt for garage space, Ben just needs to remember which barn he parks him in, and will get that 4 post lift he has always wanted!! My horses are going to be living in a horsey heaven and I can't wait to have them at home again. I'm hoping our farmer friends in Sufffolk have managed to get my old Spitfire out (the wheeled variety, not a winged one!!) so I can drag that to Devon and start a project of my own. Ben is retiring from work on 30 June, so we have a lot to be happy about at the moment. I hope we can meet up with TR friends again soon. It has been a long time and the world has changed, but we miss you all. Wishing everyone a safe and happy future! Vicky xxxxx
  3. Roger (with alien hat) on a unicycle, now that is something I would like to see! Vicky x
  4. Thank you, Stuart, that looks like just the ticket. As Ben said, changing the heater position was one of those jobs we should have, but didn't get round to.....self inflicted pain. Last time it wasn't so cold on the RBRR and we got away with it, but this last event proves we really must get on with the job. It is a bit like fitting the hard top, which we had planned to do, but didn't. Rest assured, it will be on next time! Vicky x
  5. Lovely to see you at the start, Roger! It was only about 6 hours earlier that it was sweltering! It got cold very quickly and it was like sitting in a blast chiller.... ('rbrr' is an anagram for 'brrr'). In the picture Ben took I've got a long sleeved top, three jumpers, two coats, two hats and two pairs of trousers (the outer pair designed to be worn in the arctic!) on!! . I thought we had blocked up all the holes with bathroom sealant and duct tape, but the wind still howled though. I have been with Ben for thirty years, and this is the first time I have ever seen him shiver......he was jibbering! It was a cracking event, though! The car was absolutely superb, didn't miss a beat and was a complete joy to drive. Ben was also a complete star and soldiered on having been very poorly during the week leading up to the start and suffering with a bad chest and sinusitis during the event. Seeing Iain with the two i's at Badgers Arse gave us a big lift, I wish we could have chatted for longer. Ben took a few more pictures, which I'm sure he will post in due course. Vicky x
  6. Wow! What an amazing achievement, very well done! What a beautiful car, too. I want one!! Vicky
  7. Have a good TRip Diane! Lovely to see you last week and I will catch up with you when you get back. Big hugs, Vicky xx
  8. Love it! They must have had such fun making that.
  9. Sounds like a good excuse for a party! That is a lovely picture of your car, Don. Vicky xx
  10. I'm sure I don't snore that loudly?
  11. Hi Richard, Yes, it is this month, hope to see you there for a belated birthday pint! With regards to getting a pass from the Boss, here are some tips.... (the order is important!). 1. Book a family holiday / set aside some time where they will have your undivided attention. Then you are putting family first (lots of brownie points). 2. Will the kids be on hols by 11 July?......if so, can the Boss + kids have (another!) holiday, perhaps a visit to the maternal grandparents, or go somewhere with the Boss's best friend and their kids. Result = grown ups drink lots of wine and are happy, kids play with each other and give the grown ups a break. They then have fun and forget that you are away having fun too. 3. If 2 above won't work, invite maternal grandparents down to stay while you are away. They can then help the Boss with kids/life so she's not under too much pressure without your support, and she gets to see her parents...........result! Now all you need to do is spend your brownie points, book the time off work, get your co-driver organised and come out to play! We were hoping you might be up for making a team!!! See you in a couple of weeks, Vicky xxx
  12. Roger, What did you expect? The clue to your musical problem is in the name! ..........I'll get back to my knitting and kittens Vicky xx
  13. Dear Roger, Please may I borrow your car for our pantomime? I have studied your music score, and without doubt, your car is playing 'tico tico‚Äč'. https://youtu.be/lU7tt8BSe-c If i could park it in the wings and turn the engine on at the right time, it would sound just perfect. Your car is obviously much more musically talented than I am. Vicky xx
