It’s been over two years since I have myself a kick up the arse and smartened my business up.
The first step was I tidied up my appearance by visiting the Turkish barbers and getting them to shape up and trim my beard and hair.
Weight loss was already ongoing – I didn’t want to become that fat old guy with the belly sticking out from under my t-shirt.
Finally, I took the financial plunge and got a new van. SAF 1 as I call her. I didn’t want to signwrite her so I decided to opt for a personalised numberplate.
Happy 2 years together. One more left before the lease runs out and I replace her. I think it’ll be another Transit Custom.
If Brexit doesn’t fuck the country and we all end up licking moss off rocks. Of course.
A week of new things. First my new van arrived on Monday. A Transit Custom in Blue Chrome. It looks amazing parked next to the Jag!
Then, on Tuesday my new leather trousers from Higgs Leather arrived. Of course I tried them on straight away! A great fit, if a little long.
They look really nice as part of a suit too although the very high quality leather makes my waistcoat look poor, so I’ve ordered a new one to match.
Earlier was the task of shortening them…
A job I’ve done many times. I always use Copydex. It doesn’t go hard, and it always stays up.
After much complaining from my poor wife, I’ve finally decided to sort myself a new van.
I have chosen… a Ford Transit Custom 2018 model. Not in orange though, it’s in “Blazer Blue”.
2 litre diesel engine. Should be pretty amazing to drive, especially compared to my rather knackered old Fiat lady.
