nice fish

And the second of my new toys arrives (pics tomorrow)

The silver Vauxhall Calibra 2 litre 8 valve automatic I have bought arrived this evening. I took it for a little drive, while listening to radio 4 (appropriately enough). It's fun and relaxing to drive - shame it doesn't drive itself! Performance is quite nice thank you.

Was thinking about filling up as it came with a bit under a quarter of a tank. Driving into the first petrol station it turns out they had run out of normal unleaded. So had the second one. Hmm. Only I would go for a purposeless drive (very out of character for me) in the middle of a national fuel protest and the resultant panic buying.
