Just for information. Simon now has to be elsewhere on the 25th. BBQ will not be used. My wife Sue is now in charge of the food. Coffee tea and biscuits on arrival.At lunch time a cold buffet of sandwiches, quiche, sausage rolls, cheese and biscuits and nibbles. Along with all the tea and coffee you can drink. Should still be a good day.

Poor old Simon probably couldn't face us lot descending on his patch! Tell him we're sorry we'll miss him, but the good news is that there'll be more grub for the rest of us! Looking forward to seeing you and meeting Sue.

This is just how it goes. Collected the Derby Bentley from the shippers in the morning, this had just returned from the Paris Prague Rally. owner came down in the afternoon to collect his things in his 25/30 Rolls, sounded a bit odd, quick check with compression tester and bore scope, head gasket blown out between 5 and 6. Quick oil and filter change on Bentley to give the owner a drive home, Head off the Rolls as it was due to go to the Roll Royce Enthusiasts Club Annual Rally at Burghley House today through to Sunday. Late afternoon a call from another customer who asked us to get a bunch of cash out of the bank, which he had transferred earlier in the day. 4pm and Simon is off to to the bank to collect the cash, then off somewhere in the country to purchase a VW bay window camper, (Keith will be pleased). We will check head and block on the Rolls this morning to see if it is possible to get it back out today. Simon is now taking the Bentley to rally Saturday and has to fit in an airport collection Sunday. This is a typical day at Scott Automotive, what was planned for the day will be done another day. One telephone call and we're off.

The really good news was following two telephone calls by 8.30, all we planned today went to h--l. Si took off to collect a Bentley Contenetal from the paint shop, as the customer wanted to collect in the afternoon. I took off to deliver a Mercedes 280 SL into another customer's storage. I must admit a few things Simon had planned did happen. Just an ordinary day at Scott Auto.
