Finished a bee garden I've been working on for months on Thurs, customer handed over cheque, I drove off. Ten seconds later, bang. My Landy lost drive to front and rear axles on a hill. And handbrake. I rolled it slowly down to side of road, found out about handbrake, tried to roll it a little bit further back from someones driveway and..a little crunch noise: I'd rolled into someone's Merc estate. Fortunately they were cool about it being fellow vintage vehicle nut: understood my predicament. Anyway, first job is to meet AA truck and get it loaded. Gearbox f****d. Bye all the money I'd made and then some. Positive side: at least it wasn't the M1. After overseeing unloading at my Chesterfield garage I'm off to work to start paying for it. Guit twang in eve or MOTD, then to Harrogate's Harlow Carr Gardens Sunday.. I'm researching for a book I'm going to write. Then MOTD2, mebe a SOO-Ly sesh: three weeks worth. Can't find that roundtuit anywhere. Mebe FOM's eaten it.
