    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Happened to me when I was doing 70 in the middle of cornwall in the landy.
    I will NOT be dropping out. I'll catch a sodding bus if I have to! I just don't have much luck with my car and the week leading up to shows

    It should all be sorted by tomorrow morning.
