Left: A photo Goodwood posted in the last week when they put their Christmas tree (one of them) up - November. Right: A photo I took back in July of almost the same angle. Love how different they look!
Cheered me right up!
First two presents I’ve ordered for myself (because my family aren’t doing presents this year).
Star Wars - original trilogy on VHS for sale.
Selling Season / Series one of The Tudors. Completely new. Still in sealed packaging from manufacturer.
My favourite cars - from top left; Porsche 936, Lotus 72E and Ferrari 312B. Coincidentally all were driven by Jacky Ickx. I love each car for different reasons, not just for their technicality but also the stunning beauty of them.
What are your favourite cars and if you have a reason - why?
This is my autograph book.
Here’s some stats for you of what it holds inside.
12 world championships.
2,833 career points.
135 fastest laps.
131 pole positions.
That’s more like it!
With his flawless complexion, adorably-tousled hair and alluring snowy-white overalls, Jacky Ickx has a funny effect on people.
The other driver is Peter Shetty and he wears hats well.

What concerts have you been to?
Was the thought that came across me when thinking of a new blog post. We’re almost at the end of the year and I was reflecting whilst listening to Muse what bands I have seen in my life to date. In doing so it occurred to me it’s been a few years since I actually sat down and wrote a list and before I eventually reach that age where you start to forget these things (and let’s face it some of us already are!) I thought I better had. Now, you can by all means totally ignore this post as it’s mainly for me but I’d love to read who you’ve seen too!
