That's a rather personal comment, I hear you snort in horror. I am typing teasingly, and only somewhat advisedly, secure in the knowledge he never ever reads my blog, so what harm can it do? Anyhow, I would never type anything on here I wouldn't be prepared to say to his lovely daft face (of which I am so very fond) so I feel fine about it.
The Husband has joined the MG Owners Club. His new member pack has arrived in the post. He has stickers.
I HEART MY MG.
MG OWNERS CLUB.
His MG keyfob is to follow under separate cover (I have the one that came with the car on my set of keys). Meanwhile, he has a parts catalogue in printed form, to read in bed, no doubt, and on disk for when he is at his pooter. He has worked out where the nearest MG specialist garage is (Macynlleth) for jobs he can't tackle himself AND we are already in touch with the local mid-Wales MG Owners Club.
We had to move fast on that one. I rang the secretary just now and had a very useful and helpful chat. The reason we couldn't afford to delay is because their annual run IS ON SUNDAY!
We are going, we are welcome, even The Dog is welcome. We will be one of 60+ MGs doing a round trip of 90 miles. The £20 entrance fee goes to the Welsh Air Ambulance.
But there is one final feature of all this that makes it feel like Fate, if such a thing can be said to exist.
The name of the local club is the Mid-Wales Dragons MG Club, and the event on Sunday is The Dragon Run.
The Little Green Dragon is gonna make some friends!!
And so, we hope, are we...
In case I am allowed, or feel inclined, to do any of the driving THIS is the cut of my jib while I am about it:
As we have been "promised" a fine day for Sunday I am hoping to dispense with the cossak hat and affect a jaunty tweed trilby with a bow on the side. And my best shades, my old Raybans. A girl can dream. However the sound of me grinding the gears would NOT be very impressive, so I guess I will be in charge of The Dog, the camera, the picnic and the route map, instead. Which will be quite enough to be going on with.
