Dove: enjoy the display! I went on February when they STILL had the damned Christmas decorations out. It was awful trying to look behind the massive dusty penguin to see the Avelling 12 ton single compound behind it. But that is what you have to do to keep the money coming in I guess.
Stopped on my way to work to help a chap and his young son that had run out of fuel on the way to school. It was a silly busy road and not one person apart from myself and a lorry driver slowed down to help us push the car to safety. Is it really so important that you get to work that you forget what it is like to panic when your car suddenly stops (he'd lent it to a friend and jumped in not realising that said friend hasn't topped it back up: another gripe!) Got them into my car (they were going to walk along the road! Christ can you imagine how I'd have felt if I'd heard they'd been wiped out by one of the drivers on their phones / doing their make up / etc??) And took them back to their house to get a jerry can (did you know most fuel stations don't stock jerry cans now? What's that all about). Got them fuel and dropped them off at the car. It took less than 20 minutes.
If people can't spare 20 minutes from their day to give a strangers car a push to safety we're all doomed.
Trouble is what I really want now is a cup of tea. This drinking water all the time doesn't have the same satisfying effect! Only a few days to go then I can end my H2 Only challenge on Friday with THE BIGGEST MUG OF TEA you'll have seen!!
