I've got 4 Wolf wheels in the garage and 5, including the spare, on the Land Rover.
The guesscast predicted thick fog here for most of the morning but instead there was unbroken sunshine all day making for a pleasant walk to and from the pub and it was warm in the sun.
I saw a prefix P Land Rover tipper used by a tree surgeon and the tatty N 110 outside the other pub. The 110 has acquired a dent behind the nearside rear wheel. Otherwise it was Discoveries 3 onwards that are prevalent here.

The latest issue of LRO arrived, together with some nice tea and cakes from the sister in law to cheer us up in isolation. Very Happy

Much as I’d like to be able to do some tasks on the Landy, Mrs K is of the opinion I need to remain indoors, so that’s what I’m doing. But I’ll enjoy some nice tea and a cake whilst doing so!

I've reached page 80 of the issue of LRO that I received this week. No new LRO and next week's Radio Times hasn't arrived yet.
Nothing exciting seen on the walk to and from the pub. The tatty prefix N 110 hardtop is still in its pub carpark. I did see a prefix L classic Range Rover otherwise it was the usual load of Land Rover vehicles seen here.
This year's gardening is going to be raised beds. I know we could make some but it's all the faff of getting the right materials so Mrs. D is going for ready made.
We're watching an episode of Endeavour we recorded and featured in it is a Series 2A 88 hardtop being used by Special Branch. The Land Rover is currently taxed.

I have yet to watch a recording about building the new "Defender."
Thick fog here this morning.
We watched an episode of Midsomer Murders LL last night which featured a beaten up Series 1 driven by thlocal ne'er do well. It's currently taxed and had a 2.5 diesel but couldn't say whether it was n/a, turbo, 200 or 300 Tdi.

Just wondering what’s happened to Paul and Geoff. Both have been quiet of late...

Yes, I wondered where they were.
The fog lifted and the sun came out. A pleasant walk to and from the pub but no Land Rovers seen except the one in the pub a carpark. Several Discovery 3's and above and the one Range Rover that stopped for the dog and me to cross the road. I reckon that without the dog nobody would have done so.
At least a politically incorrect laugh at the pub today.
The younger dog has a big fan club at the pub. I don't.

I've spent the day doing Post Grad study.

Nothing having to do with Land Rovers done. But I did have a short non-studying break to install new ceiling light bar from Next for us. Smile

Today is apparently Blue Monday. Four weeks since C-word week, the middle of winter and everyone is skint. Not to mention still showing positive for the lurgy. Rolling Eyes

It was certainly Blue Monday here. Clear blue sky and sunshine all day.
I shifted a load of leaves using the battery powered leaf blower this morning. The petrol one is in vac/shredder mode.
The Land Rover was used to take the dogs for a walk this morning. The byway seems to be used weekends by off roaders and parts of it are somewhat muddy. I don't drive it because one short section is too narrow although others get through. There's no illegal off piste driving though but I wonder how long it will be before someone complains as it's a popular walking track.

No doubt complaining about vehicles in the countryside Alan. Even though most walkers who complain drive there themselves. Rolling Eyes

Yes, Rich, any excuse will do for the moaners.
Practical Classics arrived today but no LRO or Radio Times yet. It doesn't look like postal delays are coming to an end yet.

Not too Blue a Monday here.

Day off tomorrow, and arrived at my temporary accommodation (*very* long story about licencing of the park I live on during the working week and my requirements to be out for a month in Jan) to find that the beautiful little cottage I stay in has had a heating failure.

As a result I've been upgraded to a positive mansion here, and feel like the Laird. Smile Smile

I think this is definitely worth a bottle of good single malt for the lassie who runs the enterprise. Smile

Sounds like a life of luxury then lowcatjo.
I've just seen the TV ad for the new "Defender." I prefer the red and black real one on the stone plinth.
