First time out in a month, made shopping at tesco much more fun. Who knew how big those parent and child bays were? So much room, I could have parked sideways.

Can't get the Spitfire out tonight for East Berks club night (TSSC) as national grid have finally filled the hole in front of my garage after 52 days, trouble is they used so much tarmac I can't open the door.

Driving to work and just as I was about to join the motorway a rock flew off a lorry in front and smashed the windscreen. Luckily i had the tonneau on, so only half the cockpit had glass in. Drove on to work slowly and then to the mobile fitters who said I had to come to them for a new Pilkington screen to be fitted.

driving to work this morning and my wiper switch died, but i found that if i went fast enough the rain rolled up the windscreen. only problem was off the motorway in traffic but luckily wasn't too bad

Nothing much to report in then last year and no major work has taken place. My son has taken to going for rides with me and we are probably on quite a few tourist shots of Windsor as we got  caught outside the castle in traffic and he seemed to cause a stir with his Spitfire hat. I put the hardtop on a few weeks ago for the winter and he seemed less impressed without the wind in his hair.

Me and the boy heading to the Windsor classic car show at the national carriage driving championships. — at Windsor Great Park.
