Sitting in the car at the local retail park earlier when this chap tapped on the window. It was chucking it down and got the cab wet as he asked me to tell him all about the car - wouldn't have minded but he wasn't even Welsh............

People are that friendly round here so ive not had any one ask about the car. Although the team at work are looking forward to a ride in it on Friday when we go to the chinese for christmas lunch.

Are you having a chocolate dessert ?
I like chinese ,our christmas lunch was last week in all the snow and it got cancelled if there is any spare can I have the left overs.

Talking about the snow , some of the neighbours were stuck half way up the hill on Thursday, they just cannot drive in the snow, it was the first day since all the snow came down that I had taken out the soul.I just put it in 2nd and chugged past them with no problems at all, it's ok for some was the comment we have not got 4wd like you. I explained that the soul was only two wheel drive but I don't think they believed me.

i think its comical that some peoples idea of driving in snow is to literally floor the accelerator and let the tyres chew thru the ice!!!!..... a supposedly very intelligent solicitor friend of mine burnt his clutch out in a 150 yard stretch of slippy country lane last year.

We used to get that when we had one of the first Renault Modus when it came out in Nov 2004. Please kept asking us about the car.

our old xmas bash was called the "bunfight" for obvious reasons ! it was a circus , the whole night would end with the raffle which if i remember rightly usually was a number of prizes of booze which got promptly quaffed and made the whole night even more of an incendiary affair,now like most of our emerald isles working populace we no longer have one due to a severe lack of interest .
