In other news, Google directions lose the will to live driving through MK - this is a genuine copy and paste:

20. At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto A421
Go through 15 roundabouts

Just finishing my coffee, and should be there about 10 :)

An excellent weekend - thanks Dom, Franklin and Patrick the Visa GTI has behaved itself back to Bristol, so now just 50 miles back to Wales. I'll try and post some pics a little bit later…

^ WHS, thanks to the organisers. Fabulous weather, really good turn out from XMs particularly. Well done Tim on 2nd best Xantia :)

Lovely to catch up with some familiar faces, get to know some less familiar ones better and meet some new ones. Next stop: Aulnay!

Finally got back home. I think it must be because the clutch is knackered but every journey into England at the moment involves getting stuck in a queue of traffic! This time a smash on the M40. Mind you, we still seemed to get home in just under five hours, which isn't actually bad going according to Google. I really do need to sort that poor car out. I think I only thought it was driving nicely because I was comparing it to the Mk1...

Speaking of which - sorry all of your time got eaten up Mike, but it'll be worth it! That will be a car transformed (in driving experience and solidity if not looks) by the time you are done. Incredible work.

Jeez man why didn't you come over and say Hi.

Were you in the blue estate ?

You were driving across the field after the raffle when Mat and I were walking back to our cars

I may have been driving a blue XM estate - now with sunroof wind deflector ;-)

Had to go out and collect mrs MO and mini MO from Bletchley Park - I did return - you did all look so busy with the BX. Had a quick chat with dolly of this parish and many XM friends, as well as Patrick Rugg - now how do I convince my wife I should trade the blue estate in for £800 against a 96,000 mile 2.1TD VSX estate.
