I just tried to register my 250RS as a 'Historic Vehicle' - six weeks after doing the application at the Post Office I get a letter saying it missed the 40 year old mark by a week would you believe and it MAY be exempt next year.....😀

My 1974 baby is exempt, but off the road undergoing a full body rebuild at the moment, engine and running gear already waiting to be fitted back, torsion bars had to be replaced though.

Did it pass?

MOT'ing vehicles is something I don't miss. Where I am there's no annual testing of cars, motorbikes or vans/trucks. The only time you need to send them in for our equivalent of an MOT is when a vehicle is bought or sold and the ownership name changes. Even then it's only a very basic mechanical test, no emmissions tests, no ECU fault code reading, no catylitic converter check and it won't fail it for warning codes or lights such as airbag or ABS etc.
Yea it passed, advisories on that brake pads but other than that all good.

I spent this morning at the local surgery, yesterday, the customers family pet got all friendly with me and had a go at my hand..

Not a dog or a cat… this was a flipping snake and a big one too!

Punctured the skin… needed a second treatment this morning.

I once spent a terrifying hour finding a fault with a bloody great Python in a tank right below the CU, horrible thing. I really hate snakes.

Up to my eye balls in meetings and budgets today. Going "The Dog Fest" at Tatton Park with the missus tomorrow, to earn some brownie points for when I spend the whole day on Sunday with my mates out on our enduro bikes, then curry and beer for tea.

Nowt on today, college induction.

Yesterday was doing car park lighting at an airport, followed by wrestling with a fire alarm at half 3 and making absolute basic rookie mistakes due to fatigue.

Note to self, ceiling boxes are exactly the same as socket boxes - they go in first and then all the wiring comes in after.

Duh!

Packing for trip to Spain tomorrow, the land of "interesting" electrics.
So much paperwork these days: Passport, double jab immunisation certificate, personal locator form, boarding pass, small briefcase to carry the above...and when returning, all of the above plus negative antigen test result pre-flight (currently still required to enter Scotland, but hope Nicola will drop this before i return) and book day 2 Covid test,,,
Hardly worth the hassle for 4 weeks in the sun!

October holidays start earlier in Scotland, so I got “Trailer Swift” hooked on, and we’re now down in a caravan site in Anglesey.

We might walk up a mountain or two, but in the meantime, I’m in the bad books for forgetting to bring the remote control for the telly.

Yet another disciplinary, my third one in the past month. The first 2 resulted in me dismissing the persons (not a nice job) this one so far is looking likely to be a final written warning.

I honestly think COVID has more of an impact on people's behaviour than we often realise, even just subtle changes that then can escalate.

Oh… I read this and thought YOU were receiving the disciplinary! 😆
