Happy New Year

Post by Doggy » Mon Jan 01, 2018 11:04 am

2018 is upon us and I hope it turns out to be a good year for everyone.
Last year was a blast for me so I'm starting this one on a high, (despite a root canal filling at 8:00 tomorrow).
We've all got one less in front of us than this time last year, so grab this one with both mitts and make it yours.

A belated HNY from me!

Doggy - what made for such a super-dooper year last year? the HGV thing? if so, and being the confident* type, I may push myself into enrolling on that Flower Arranging night class I've being eyeing for the last 10 years.

To me each year seems much like the last i.e. a bit shite - reinforced this morning by the drive to work after the Holidays and seeing the same cars, same people, same pot holes.......urrrgh.

I promise to return to my usual happy self soon :cheesy:
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

We had a great holiday/road trip through France & Switzerland in June/July
Our eldest & her partner's first baby (& our 4th grandson) arrived safe & sound at the end of July
Sneaked a week in the Algarve in September
Passed my 2 truck tests in August & November
Fairly* happy with that lot.

Your year wins my year by a mega mile!

Holidays = 3 days in Germany driving a Roda Skapid with small pez engine.

Babies = Nil

Lorry driving = Nil

*Makes note*

Must. Try. Harder. :(

Yeah HNY and all that bs... not a great year for me. No babies, no new cars, close relatives passing... 2018 can't be worse.
