I'm bailing out.
Totally fed up with rain bloody rain!

I've turned into a fish. Cannot work pedals and steer with fins and tail.

Drying out. See you when it gets drier. :snork: :snork:

I've decided to stay at home in the dry as well. I had hoped that being Chinese New Year work might be a bit calmer - how naive :roll:

We did indulge in a pudding :)

It is a new yet familiar me for 2016. No retreat no surrender. I will have a pudding I don't care if its 9:01. I am having some work done at the moment to improve my looks. Its a big ask as you guys know how pretty I already am but I am hoping to move from a 9.7 to a 9.8 by the March meet :)

Ha! I love these :)

I wonder if anyone's managed to retain the electrical adjustment from the drivers seat yet. I feel a project coming on. Anyone want to donate me a drivers seat? :)

The drivers seat is next, I'm thinking of keeping the heat and movement. I bought an interior for cheap money. A lot less than a fake leather pc chair anyway!

A heated seat in the garage at winter would be absolutely incredible. My garage is FREEZING in winter, I've had to give up on engine work in the past because I was too cold to work my fingers properly.

Has to be said, a warm arse probably wouldn't help with this particularly, but I'd feel better about it.

The old chair is for the garage, my daughter wants this RX8 seat now so the other will be for the main pc.
