    Did all my excercises then spent so long looking for the damned missing passport that the planned bike ride is history.
    Golfing Wednesday & Thursday but Friday is looking good.... I really will get one in then.

    Shopping done. Filled up the Honda CRV at ASDA as it's the cheapest around here.
    Averaged 54 mpg on the way back - 16 miles from Bideford to Braunton - not bad for a 2.2 ltr diesel AWD SUV. :okay:

    Do I look like I found it? :cursing::cursing::cursing:.
    Just phoned the taxi company, last hope really.....nothing.
    We have literally gone through all of both our jackets and trousers. I have take drawers out in case its fallen out. I have checked every single case and rucksack we own.
    Checked all the ideas suggested on CC.
    Just about given up now.
    I dont want to give up and spend £90 but see little choice :cry:

    I got 28.5 mpg towing a 480 size caravan back the 100 miles from Perranporth the other week. That was back up the coast road, not on the A30.
    Got to admit I'm well impressed with the CRV. It's comfy, economic, capable off road, tows well and fun to drive.
    The Honda C-DTi 2.2 diesel is an absolute jewell of an engine.
    Gonna keep this one for a couple of years then might trade it in for a newer version.

    Yes, those were the days. Today I had to log into their web site before the tickets went on sale and kept hitting refresh to make sure I was first in the queue. Got the tickets so I'm in Mrs. jg's good books for now.

    I love her dearly but don't share her love of Sunderland. I am a Leeds United season ticket holder and the 1973 FA cup final still comes up in arguments here. I will be going to Bristol with her though as it's one of my favourite UK cities and I still haven't been to all it's pubs.

    Back from hossy. We've decided that when Mrs Ds motability contract ends later this year were going to tell them to shove it - its 80 quid a month cheaper to buy and insure the same car, and she'd have something to show for it.
