    You guys off until the 6th Jan as well?

    Only 1 week in and I feel the same, although work is just as boring at this point in the year hence the reason for staying off.

    I am actually dying to give the car a decent wash and polish so maybe next week it will finally stop raining for a bit, probably snow instead mind.

    you lot have it alright, i've had an operation on my foot so not only am i bored as sh*t but i also cant leave my apartment, cant drive my car hell i cant even ride my bike ha ha. I'm slowly but surely winding the other half up (tash) cause she is pretty much having to do everything, she doesn't even really want to take me to tesco again cause i used the mobility scooter the first time which just caused her great amounts of embarrassment lol

    Washed the R, cleaned under the bonnet and engine plastics etc, put the winter wheels / tyres on, cleaned up the summer wheels (face and barrels using clay) and wrapped up in wheel bags, garage tidied up. Now to do the same to the Audi.

    Where did you get the wheel bags from? Are they any good? What's different from wrapping them in some old dust sheets?

    I agree Andy you win.

    I'm going to change the wheels on the car now. That should keep the boredom away for a bit.

    Andy hope your back on your feet soon ;-)

    Ha. I've ended up doing some diy in the house and nearly taking a finger off...still cracking on though while the mrs is and has been playing that stupid candy crush on the iPad for the last god know how many hours.

    All I know is that I can't smell any cooking going on yet.
