Sal has been pretty good these past few months but recently she has had a couple of scares. The first is that she has been very breathless and investigations by the docs showed she has blood clots on the lungs. Apparently this is not uncommon in people with cancer. She has been put on warfarin … Continue reading A bit of a scare!
I took the caravan to have its annual service today. I had to get it to Scorrier from Plymouth and wait while the service was done so I decided to take a trip to Truro instead of just hanging around. I have lived in Cornwall for 6 years now and never been to truro so … Continue reading Caravan Service
Yes, finally I am making progress. I managed to reaload all my pics int Lightroom and to start cataloguing them properly. OK, I have only done about 10% or the 13000+ photos but I feel now that the end is in sight.

As an EV owner I need to have easy, quick and accurate information about the location and availibility of charge points.

My trip to Gateshead showed me something that I suppose I should have been able to work out … Continue reading Motorway or not?
So, what has happened over the past week apart from my self-enforced exile? Firstly, and rather importantly, Nissan have finally responded to the issue of them supplying dangerously wired plugs on the Nissan Leaf charge cable.
