Had the weekend in Llandudno, mainly to catch Gary Mullen with The One Night of Queen gig in Venue Cymru. Absolutely stunning, but of course you need to like Queen music.
This morning found the Merc lot having a Promenade Meet on the front.
I couldn't resist letting them have a proper car in the parade but they refused for some reason.

I'm attaching three photos of two cars.
The "600 BOF" is because of my kids nickname for me "Boring Old Fahrt".


All things considered I don't think that we have anything to worry about!!!

Finally managed to update my profile. Only had one short job today, collected school kids from the baths and took them back to school.
But, disaster. Unusual for me. Managed to clip a car whilst coming out of a narrow street, cars parked both sides and a van parked across the narrow road I was turning into.
The dreaded rear overhang strikes again. Mark on the coach vanished when I wiped my hand over it, but the car has a damaged wing.



Yesterday was a visit to Bletchley Park.
Twas a long hard day.
Up at 05:00
Southport pickup at 07:00
Arrived 12:15
Rained all the time
Closed at 17:00
Finally home at 23:05
I was knackered but well worth it.

That's a bummer! It never ceases to amaze me how drivers like yourself can thread big coaches and articulated lorries through tiny spaces that most people in 'small' cars can't even manage to do.

A understatement if ever I heard one. Can you bottle that energy and see me a lorry load?

I had a similar problem once going into Seaford. The road by the Morrisons garage was closed (the roof had blown off the filling station!) so I took the road behind only to find it turned into a very narrow lane (Clinton Lane) although just wide enough for the coach.

I got to the end and wanted to turn right but with cars parked right up to the corner and on the road opposite there was no room to turn. Only one thing for it was to turn left as it widened out and then reverse out to the main road, all in the dark too. On turning right I did get a no-entry sign with the tail swing! Think it's still at an odd angle now.

I got a Halt sign in Manchester five years ago and that was wall mounted. It is still at an odd angle!!!
