So what a Great day it was yesterday and a bit of a milestone for me as it was the first meet I had arranged since beating Cancer. So was lovely to get out and about again and have a laugh, some banter and a catch up with people I think of as extended family. .

I would have posted yesterday but was feeling a bit tired so thought I would post when my head was clearer. It just felt Magic yesterday. I think I have been doing these meets for some 8 years now and getting one sorted yesterday was like finding a piece for a jigsaw puzzle that had eluded me for some time.

The good news is now we are back on Track, I hope to announce the date of our next meet this week after I speak to Nigel . Yes let's not waste any time. Covid and my illness have held us back but no longer.

Finally back to the meet. Highlights had to be catching Matt out by overtaking the slow car ahead of us whilst he was Busy admiring the scenery and didn't realise I was gone, Matt and me revving our engines at the traffic lights only for a policeman to start walking in our direction only for the lights to go green. Sorry Officer we were being a bit loud and lastly Steve driving past the pub we were at, totally confusing us. Oh and for Nigel for putting up with me with a pub that sold chicken wings but didn't do Whitebait. Lol. Oh and Nigel. That Tesla is quiet but dam fast.

Thanks everybody.

Here are a few I took and I actually owe a Seriously apology to Dan and Lizzie who were there and were sitting at the end of the table in the picture at the pub above, but I didn't take a picture of the Astra Turbo.... I think what happened is I took all the pictures before I said hello to you... Dan if you want to post a picture of the Astra Turbo, you are more than welcome to.... Soz...

Nigel , will you just stop it. Image️. How many times are you going to tell me there is a car behind you. Lol. You got too much bhp or electrons or whatever.

Seems the car in front is no longer a Toyota, its a Tesla. Lol

Seriously though , I retract my apology and its now obvious to me that I got the Astra at its best angle. Image. Just kidding.

As everybody who knows Me and Nigel, we have always promoted these meets in the sense that please join us for these meets and bring whatever you want. Ok the group might give you some stick and some banter but nothing is meant by it and we appreciate everyone that turns up for the people you are, not the car you drive. Now Dan hurry up and post a proper picture of your car.

It’s a similar attitude with our monthly Cotswold meet where attendees have moved on car wise but still attend for the banter etc; hence I renamed it Cotswold Allsorts.

That's was a Really clever Name Change Chris. I like it. It never really twigged with me. I thought it might have had something to do with liquorice allsorts and Bertie Bassett country . How silly do I feel now.

I think Steve is spot on with his picture of my car 😂 But if you actually wanted a photo of the Astra SRI Turbo (can't forget the SRI!) it would of been far too filthy!
