I seem to have been a bit quiet on the blog of late, for the simple reason that I can’t think of a lot to write about. I can’t say too much about what I’ve been up to with my XM, as you’ll be able to read about that in Classic Car Buyer (and Classics Monthly from time to time). The Perodua continues to be used for bimbling around, so there’s not much excitement there either.
Of course, the car I love to talk about, my 2CV, is now sitting in my garage looking rather miserable as she awaits better financial circumstances and a much needed restoration. This is where the low-income lifestyle falls down rather.
Not that things have been too bad of late. I’m currently working part-time for the community transport group nearby as well as continuing with writing work. It’s been really nice to exercise my brain on something very different from the world of classic cars. Believe me, the amount of legislation you encounter when running a fleet of minibuses is quite something to behold!
I suspect this is one reason my blog posts have been less numerous recently. My brain is getting a proper workout pretty much every day of the week and on top of that, I’ve been doing a fair dose of volunteer minibus driving recently too. I’ll confess another reason may be that I’m posting more and more on Twitter. It takes far less brain power to construct a 140-character post than one consisting of hundreds of words on my Blog.
Do stay tuned though. There are some meaty roadtrips to look forward to this year (a result of owning thrifty motor cars and having a little more money), possibly even overseas. If I can find my passport.
