Ello all....

Been a busy festive period for the Skyline household, but I thought I would show you one of the presents (in this case a joint one) received on the big day....



Was not a surprise as we had to que up for 3 hours to get our "paws" on this chap, we were still glad to un-wrap him  :D

P.S. Got back today from a trip up North, including York and my first ever trip to the NRM, photos to follow elsewhere.

I really enjoyed NRM, even more than I was expecting to.

Happy New Year to you too George, a bit weird speaking to a man in the future  :goggleeyes:

I got driving this week after a 2 month + lay-up busted ankle!

My Nissan Elgrand sat with flat battery -started perfect after a charge.  It's not been behaving before -bought a new set of glow plugs but works first time since I got them ::)

Got my Merc working yesterday -had to read the manual to remember the quirks with windows re-set etc but there's just nothing better than the sound of a 5LV8 starting 8) Thank god the tyres haven't got flat spots as they were brand bew before my lay-up :claphappy:

.....means I'm semi-mobile now.  Getting back to normal, ready for start of work end of January (ish).

The Grommit Tigger is brilliant. There is a Wallace and Grommit shop at Cribbs Causeway and the figurines are such good quality and so popular they have to ration them.

Is that one up from a packet of wine gums and a glass of lemonage?  ;D

A tip for Bealman - do both. That way you don't need ice in the Baileys :heart2:

Whether or not the figurines can be mail ordered I don't know

You can buy them via Mail Order, but such is demand at the moment, depending on the exact one you want, it could be 3 months before you get it!

They can only manufacture a certain amount and are really struggling to keep up, but are continuing well into 2014.

If you want a better chance at getting the one you want quicker, sign up to the e-mail newsletters which tell you when new stock is coming into the Cribbs shop (and / or online).  As mentioned earlier though, if you go in person to the shop you could be in for a long que, WITHOUT a guarantee of getting one.

My happiness was short lived.  Done well last 2 weeks, then day of physio ankle blew up like a balloon and not gone down since.  Been trying too hard to do too much apparently.  Very difficult to gauge what's too much when you have to spend so much time with leg up, or easier option just back in bed again.
