Nearly a year later

I started this blog all excited about it, I had intended to put lots and lots of stuff on it.  As it turns out I didn’t bother doing anything with it at all and so I haven’t made a single post in nearly a year.  That’s not to say that I haven’t been doing anything at all, I just haven’t been doing very much.
Growing food – nope
Zero cost living – a little bit
Increasing income – not nearly enough
Losing weight – I’ve done well with this

So basically been a lazy dog :-(

I am going to make a commitment to improving everything and following through on it.  In my next post I will detail my plans.

Delorean car

One of the problems with being poor is not being able to buy shiny things when you come across them :-) l was just picking up an auction catalogue at Wilson’s auction and while I was there I popped in to the auction to see what was happening.

The auction that was running was for classic cars from the estate of someone who had died, I didn’t get the guys name.

There were all sorts of cars from Rolls Royce’s to Old Bedford vans, a tiny little Messerchmitt car, an MGB (I think), but my favourite was a Delorean car, with it’s brushed aluminium bodywork and gullwing doors, mind you it was a left hand drive.

I was going to have a bid, just for a laugh, but the bidding started at £10,000 and very quickly went up, with a mix of bids from the floor, telephone, and online, to a winning bid of £18,000.  A bit  out of my range :-)
