First things first and a HUGE, if not HUGER, thank you to our ex-boss Geoff Brown.
In the build-up to Christmas we had chatted together about the impending adventure and it was in one of these conversations that he asked about the car we would be using and when I said "Errr I don't know" his response was that as he was looking to change his car in the new year then his would be available.
Christmas comes and Christmas goes and Mr. Brown heads off to pastures new. Fast forward to New Year and an e-mail informing me that the car is available from the weekend! A shock, where can we store it as we don't need it this early; but equally who can look a gift horse in the mouth. Especially when this gift we are informed is to cost nothing and to treat it as his donation; as I said at the opening of this entry - a huge thanks to Geoff Brown.
So, The Fun police are now the owner of a pretty good Vauxhall Zafira, 55 plate, 7 seats and to be honest not too much work really required or so it seems at the minute.
Delivered, parked up and for now looking resplendent in its natural dark plumage until we decide how we will dress it up ready for the adventure... expect this to change somewhat.
Inside and outside are in good condition hopefully the elastic band powering the engine is sound but we are hoping a friendly mechanic will help us out with this.
Have car will travel, hopefully there and back, and all I hope is that the cd player works.
