    I forgot to mention it was lovely, warm and sunny when I popped out earlier. Very nice day.

    Following one of my rather more gnomic emails, Nixons generated a P45 after the end of one contract.

    It took me another year to wonder WTF HMRC were sending me stuff about unemployment or some such.

    All this despite me being in contract and paying PAYE etc.

    Raining.

    Tea: chilli con carne with rice, possibly some more stewed pears (), possibly with or possibly sans custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: the remainder of "Predators (2010)" that I didn't watch last night.

    Possibly followed by the 2nd VHS cassette of H2G2.

    The Toy is back from having new callipers fitted on the rear.
    My loan car while it was in was a Fiat 500 (thankfully the manual, not the duologic variant I drove recently). It was fun to be in a small car, but it had more body roll that The Toy. As for the cornering and acceleration... let's just say I'm glad to have The Toy back.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
    Hands... out infractions
    Face... the music
    Space... between the ears

    While driving the Seicento I never worried much about acceleration since it always gave the impression of going much faster than it really was, the bonnet being essentially invisible.

    The narrow tyres were good on snow too.

    I loved that little car.

    Having sold it to the chap up the road, his boys told me the other day that it had finally bitten the dust when the tin worm got it.

    It's an 18 year old FIAT after all. .

    My beloved FIAT Croma Super IE died at age 18 too.

    Another car I loved to death, most comfortable motorway cruiser.

    According to some site or other there's about five left on the road.

    My mistake, there's 3!

    Search results for 'fiat croma' - How Many Left?

    There's a 1000 Seicento SX left.

    There's 0 Tempra 2.0 SX left. That was a nice car, but not as nice as the Croma.

    Walk walked, green ring closed

    Quite pleasant out there though in a slightly chilly sort of way, but I had my nice warm coat on and walked briskly enough to generate plenty of heat to be going along with

    Oh, and a couple of hours ago the meat was chopped up, the vegetables extracted and blended, the pulse mix drained.

    Then the lamb's shoulder bones, now separated by the deliquescence of their connective tissue, were removed, stripped of any bits of meat still on them, and everything else was chucked back into the slow cooker where it is slowly forming itself into Scotch broth

    Tomorrow, the quest to fit stuff in the freezer will begin anew

    Entertainment (continued):

    "Predators" was amusing enough in a weird sort of way.

    Now watching "Adolph Hitler's War" on Yesterday, it seems to be an eastern production, and this week's epic is about the battle of Kursk, which I was reading about only yesterday, admittedly at about 04:30.
