... we take these cars for granted and forget some people don’t have the luxuries we do…
Imagine. Some people can't watch TV in the back. BooHoo.

What rate of pay does your chauffer command if you don't mind me asking mac?..



:D
I'm guessing he's like me, barely seen the tv's in the back, once or twice maybe.
He IS the chauffeur

Might as well make use of the Volvo, so....

Earlier yesterday, offending dead hedges ripped out, new replacements thrown in along with some fertiliser and watered, now we'll see if they live or die lol

I'm not a gardener.

Back seats of the Volvo down and a tarpaulin covering entire rear section, dead hedges etc placed in bags, so can't be any more careful really. It'll be a local tip run tomorrow to get rid

Ahah! Sorted at last then and that must be a load off your mind, nothing like tackling a job you don't want to do and getting it done and dusted and out of the way and some good news about your Jag too,

I did pmsl at this one Gina, very good, although the hedge you have added looks great, much better than mine lol

That is entirely possible Bob, "just to get the feel of her again" you understand....

Don't knock it till you're tried it Andrew ;)

At least they are not flared wellies.

Thigh high? How does the sheep fit?

I had my update call from Shirley at the bodyshop today, not great unfortunately.

Looks like there's issues with parking sensors, the wiring they seem to think, so will not be available tomorrow

The Volvo for another wee while by the looks of it.

Not so good but better getting her back 100% than find out a week later somethings not right.

Don’t worry we’ll still talk to you if you turn up in a Volvo…

but they're doing a full machine polish etc when completed.
So, if I want my car polished, I need to be "banged from behind" by some dozy Doris? Coz it ain't happening any other way....

You misunderstand the process. Your car has to be "banged from behind" by some dozy Doris.

I called the bodyshop today and asked for an update, spoke to Mark, the workshop supervisor about this..

All good, the wiring loom issue been dealt with and put back together, now being fully machine polished I'm told.

She should be ready for handover in 23 hours, 50 minutes and 8 seconds........thereabouts lol, but who's counting?

Called the car hire people and advised will call them tomorrow morning with approx handover times so they can have someone there to collect
the Volvo ( which although a decent car, won't be missed )

Tick tock.....

Great news Jim, you'll be pacing up and down, staring at your phone waiting on the call!

I know what you mean about the Volvo, nice cars but just a car that does a job.
