Of plus one to the collection

5th June 2016

I said last week that I'd have some good news to impart, but in truth I'm only going to give you half of it, as the second thing we had planned for the week didn't come off. Never mind, we've rescheduled everything back 7 days and hopefully, it'll be on the agenda for next week's blog instead.

Pluto’s radiator drain tap was also showing its age.
