    Wheel bearing went in the back of my transporter for the 2nd time in 3 months. Will prob sell it. I had money put by to build a steel workshop, 10m x 6 at the back of my house. Thats prob going to go on a new van now. Wouldn't mind, I just replaced the timing belt this summer, but its costing me money at this stage and i need something bigger. Been looking at VW Crafters and MErc Sprinters but any ones in my budget have crazy mileage on them. Have got my eye on a very clean looking Transit LWB from 2015, 150000 miles on it and the guy will bot it through the MOT first. There is better value in the UK but I cant travel cos of covid.

    Well that's madness any business expense is tax deductible, you dont see big companys running heaps
    lease one then thats a cheaper alternative, its not a good look when you roll up with a wheel missing
    first impressions and all that

    Sorry to here that Dermot the Tenerife government covered you for everything whilst you were there if you were staying in hotels or apartments( in order to boost tourism )but would not cover us mere property owners that Put money into the country in the first place. 
    Rather annoyed me that did to say the least as I need to go x

    yep. Masks travelling anywhere from now on. Our biggest concern was the fact we would have to isolate 2 weeks on return. I can't be away from work for 4 weeks and Eileen, as a nurse, certainly can't . I'm now hoping to move the flights to next summer and book a nice apartment . Pisses me off, cos , our apartment for next month was opposite San Telmo. We have never stayed in a place in that good a position before.
