No, but I saw her driving through Taunton a couple of weeks ago, very unlike when I didn't see/hear you right behind me in your kiwi monster with 5 inch exhaust (or whatever size it was) and your headlights flashing about 5 or 6 months ago! See, I'm not totally blind.

Oh yeah, welcome back. Shame you couldn't make the meet last night.

Well lets see...

7:07 Leave on foot for Highbridge railway station (about 2 miles away).
7:42 Arrive at railway station.
7:57 Get on train after sitting on cold concrete bench for too long.
8:16 Get off train in Taunton.
8:20 Sit down at my desk.

:D

Fuel consumption is so bad that I've resorted to getting the train to work! A return ticket (£6.10) is less than I spend on petrol alone, plus I'm not putting miles on the car.

The car's not running properly at the moment, so it's using more fuel than it should be. It's going back to Grunt on Friday (subject to change if past experiences are considered :mad: )

I'll let you know what it's like when it running properly. My mate says it smells like his Honda lawnmower at the moment! At least it stops people tailgating me :D
