Happy new year, all,     

Ian,   @mayevora you should be getting the mini back, so you may have had a few days off before the end of this year.

Just SORN'd 2 of my cars for the next few months.

Lotus-filled 2024 for us all

Might be a possibility for a less filled Lotus year,  this coming year.

I’ve had an unexpected 2 weeks off. After picking the mended car up 9 days ago and driving it home no issues. Went to set off  Wednesday morning and clutch went straight to the floor and didn’t return. I’ll be phoning brakedown at 6.30am Tuesday morning as I want it back in the garage being worked on as they open by 8.30am. 😡

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Sounds it must be still covered by the garage - they must have messed up the repair.

Not wishing to play top trumps, but as at the end of 2023 I now have enough money to not work for the rest of my life!

Which is a bit longer than a day, but I've worked for this since I started paying taxes at 15, and living within my means, for the past 41 years. No more will I be paying over 55% taxes....

Calm down, calm down, said the scouser who actually worked (and is still working) to the Southerner.

If I sold my house here and moved to Cyprus I could afford a Nice 3 bed villa with a pool and have enough to live comfortably for 20 years minimum. 

Sadly My wife has different ideas and wants to be near the kids and have a nice big house.

So working for the next 10 years it is. Fuck it.

And a Happy New Year to everyone!

What is the point of a "nice big house"?

Since my kids left home I've been left questioning why we live in a large house when there is just the two of us. 4/5 bedrooms and a half acre jungle to maintain is nonsensical really for just the two of us.

You can work for the next 10 years Tony to sustain that nice big house, but at what cost to your health, and you'll never get those ten years back. And people say "man maths" often makes no sense. Women maths isn't even based on logic most of the time.

It does!  But then all that means is you hoard and store even more useless shit that you don't need!

But then, it also is allowing me to build a 3mx2m base board to allow me to install all the "old" Scalextric I've found as I've been clearing out the hoardings....  :)

But that then opens up another can of worms as you see there all sorts of "digital air" controllers that allow you to individual control up to 6 cars, have pit stops for tyre changes, weather, and random mechanical issues etc.  I'm like a kid again...

I'd be happy living in a industrial unit with attached car park, easy to maintain and loads of car space, plus probably some large doors to get the cars inside when needed. Something the size of a Tesco's superstore would be great.

That's basically what I have:

Untitled.png

A garage with room for 9 to 12 cars, depending on size and how close I stack 'em (including 2 on the lifts and 2 underneath). Total size about 18x18m, so far from a Tesco!
Bottom right is my living corner, bottom left is rented out as offices along with the rest of the building (not shown). There is a 2nd floor for storage as well. The layout of the racking etc has changed from the initial design, but the general idea remains. And after 5 years I'm still very happy with it. Which means it's right on topic. 😎

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Oh my god Filip, that is my ideal house layout right there (wife would definitely not agree, but hey, wife's can be for xmas, not life!).

I'm so jealous. Enough space to work and live, but then loads of play space!  Nice one @Escape
