firework safety.

don't, whatever you do, get a box of "Standard" fireworks, tape them all together with insulation tape, stand them in their own packaging on a plastic garden table and light them all at once*.

or at least do be careful when you do.

* thinking about it, this is probably the safest bonfire night I've had for years. it's normally a lot more experimental than this.

new car!

(viewed 2518 times)
New new too. Turned out buying new was cheaper, by quite some margin, than buying secondhand.

It's a Panda Dynamic 1.3 Multijet Turbo Diesel. Fiat's awesome common rail JTD engine. I'm very much loving that.

It's nice to drive, a good combination of driving response, economy (official figure is 65mpg combined), low emissions (tax band B - ?35/year!) and fun. It is fun, too. Not quite as fun as a mini cooper, but at least as much fun as a 205.
