And he may not quite be going 2000 miles, but he'll be back by Christmas.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8MBXiEgwNY
As the lyrics to that song say:
He's gone two thousand miles
It's very far
The snow is falling down
Gets colder day by day
I miss you

The children will sing
He'll be back at Christmas time

And now he's sailed through his MOT without much trouble at all - another year of S8 bliss beckons . And somewhat incredibly, he's only covered 3200 miles in the last two years Makes a nice change from the 30k per annum between 2009 and 2012....

Glad to hear that that another MoT is ticked off - but what does "without much trouble at all" mean though? An advisory or two?

Advisory for the front wipers - a bit on the slow side (like the owner...)
