Life at the moment

Sorry about the rubbish title, couldn’t think of anything more inspiring as just posting about general life at the moment! Been about 4 months since I last posted –  had a busy summer away in Greece, the lakes and now started college. Posted ages ago that I finished my GCSEs and got my results at the end of August, did very well and have my awards ceremony next week.

Rose has settled very well into Millthorpe  enjoying it and did eventually run her race for life – raising a lot of money. John is in the school production of the Wizard of Oz and has been very busy in the evenings with lots of rehearsals.  College is good very different from Millthorpe and I am enjoying it a lot more.

Everyone is out at the moment at Granny’s (Mary’s)  ceremony as she is becoming a Lay Reader. Going out for a meal at Meltons tonight which will be very nice. Off out into town so I might post sometime soon or it might be in a few more months!

Truck moved

Just to let you know that all updates about my truck have been moved, to a new website that I am making myself, I’ll probably post a few things about stuff going on, but not much. Mainly it will be about the truck. The website is set out the same way so it won’t be hard to use. For your updates go to

By the way the truck is going great!!!

Truck-part 4

Hey everybody my truck is now back to its normal self again, after a few bumpy weeks she is in fully working condition! I was driving her last night around the park and she was going scarily fast! Well as I said last time I was going to go down to the Knavesmire and drive about. I also mentioned letting dad have a go. I should have realised from the beginning that that was a mistake!

O well got her fixed up and she is running smoothly. Going to buy a few parts for her over the next two weeks or so. This time to make sure the truck lasts longer than to get the truck going again!

I’m going to get a new air filter and a fuel filter. This will stop dirt and dust getting into the engine and also keep the engine cool while it is running. I am also going to get a centre skid plate and a fuel tank guard. This will strengthen the truck and help stop things breaking. Overall these four items will cost about £40!!! Oh well its all worth it.

Oh yeah and she still hasn’t had the space to hit top speed. I don’t think I will ever drive her at top speed because you need a really long, straight, flat road to get full power with no cars and you don’t get that in the UK! Oh well I’ll see how fast I can get her going off road though!!!
