Today was singing in the rain day! Got myself a tan or is it rust? Mmm, here early this morning and surprise surprise the Polish lorry is here and has blocked all the road and I was not told he was coming but never mind. I let him in and got him loaded, only had cars so was not too bad. I've been doing half cuts all day, they got five done so done well in the rain. No customers about today, the phones were quite slow too and tyres were slow. The container is here and ready for the morning and i'm busy with collections tomorrow it's so not to bad.
Van today is a Transit 280 02 plate for spares, nice engine and that's it. I'm going to have a little drink when I get home and then lock the door and get my head down. Chill time, it' s been a hard week.

The container has been booked for Friday and there are nine cars coming tomorrow for half cuts, someones going to be busy!

Tyres slow, yard slow but good as I can get some jobs done like fixing the forklift. New people in today from Pakistan, they brought three lorry engines and want ten more!! Where will I find those?! I will have to think about that. Need to go, night in again going to put up some xmas decorations and see if it gets me it the mood ha ha bar humbug!
That's another day done, went to Milton Keynes this morning to sort some paper work on a new hook lorry. All done, but I was stuck for one hour on the motor way and seen nothing wrong when I got moving but what's new? Not a lot of sales today, a lot of bodies about but not spending a lot. I sold a few small parts and stripped a few engines ready for scrap so will have a load for tomorrow as well so that will be two loads one engine and one shell.
