I’m back!

Two snails on a flower Two snails necking on a flower

Yes, I’m back. And I had a really really good time at home. I got cups of tea in bed, I met with friends, I got a new car, saw my family, played with the dogs and chilled.. And it was a really really good time. I didn’t really want to come back, but, well, needs must and all that! But I do have today (Monday) off work, so I’ve been shopping in my little car and come back with lots of nice vegetables and fruit :D

My mum’s garden is just *THE* place to be for a snail on a Friday night. So I took photographs. The two there together got so carried away they eventually fell off the flower and into the mud on the plant pot! There are loads and loads of them in the garden. There was also a hedgehog one evening..

Yesterday I went to the beach, and that was lovely too. I’ve been past this part of the beach on the train lots of times. People park up on the beach and just wander down to the sea, so I thought I’d try it. And I got a bit stuck. Not much purchase on pebbles, is there??
When I eventually managed to get on the road, there was this awful squeaking and squealing noise coming from the wheels.. So I pulled all the pebbles out of the suspension and the backs of the tyres (and the bumper shelf), but the noise was still there. Turns out two or three small stones had gotten stuck next to the brake disc, so it ended up having to stick something long down there to get them out. (after I’d popped the bonnet and laid on the floor, just so it looked like I knew what I was doing…). Anyway. The car ran fine after that, and it was a good job I had my sat nav with me because I hadn’t got a clue where I was!

Anyway – readers. People of blogland. I need your help. Just what colour is my car?? I’ve had a few opinions, but no consensus yet.. And I don’t yet have the log book to see what colour it says on there.. So what colour is my car??

My new car

  1. Is this a trick question? We all name a colour and then you tell us it is actually blue or something like that?

    Looking at the Dulux colour charts (because that is the normal place to choose a car colour), what about Fire Cracker? Much more exciting than just ‘red’ or ‘brown’. How about the exciting sounding ‘African Adventure’? Think of the fun you could have when you tell your friends you’re just ‘going out for a drive in the African Adventure’.

    Well, it depends on whether that’s a picture of your car !!

    Nope, it’s not a trick question. And yes, that is a picture of my car. I’ve had suggestions ranging from ‘burnt bronze’, pink, maroon, claret, wine, puce… As well as the above.

    I like ‘Fire Cracker’ and ‘African Adventure’ though…
