    Saw Simon's new Lambo tonight, quite randomly in St. Albans. As I was walking to the pub, crossing the road, I thought "Ooh, Orange Murcie... Wow, I recognise that plate..." First time I've seen an F-Chatter's car on the road. Especially parked.

    Got some dirty looks off drivers for stepping into the road to take the photos below. Sorry for the crappy quality.

    Didn't expect to see you so far south, Simon. Enjoy St. Albans? :) I was going to leave a note saying hello, but lacked a pen.

    Jesus! You can't go anywhere in that car! Theres a story behind this-here goes;

    I was going down to London after Donnington and about 8pm I was nose to frggin tale on the M1, pissing down and dark. Was in the middle lane stopped when this MX5 pulls up next to me and this FAB bird catchs my eye.(Slim/v nice looking and 2 large assets) Down goes the window (and hers) and we have a good old chat, she lives in St Albans but keeps a stupid mutt of a horse in Sheffield and shes on the way home. (Hate the bloody things - what is it with girls & horses)Traffic starts moving at this point so we keep together 2 abreast and hold up 2 lanes of traffic behind. Got her phone no and went out with her tonight in St Albans he he. She is a cracker. Shes coming to stay this weekend.
    However I can't help wondering if the night had been as successful had I been driving a Ford Cortina crusader.....

    PS St Albans is very swish

    I have a horse, you should ride one and then you will find out why we like them.

    I am still at home, not being lasy at work. I know have lost my voice completely

    So its true; a nice car helps you pull!

    I used to ride horses until I left uni; funny animals- will stay rock steady when passed by an HGV, but then get scared of a polythene bag in the hedge! Lots of fun I must say, but can't say it was ever a great talent of mine.

    Dunno why girls like horses so much; perhaps Katie (or indeed Simon's new ladyfriend) can enlighten us...

    Robert.

    hey simon, so kirstine was right...u tend to meet in totally unexpecting circumstances, like a supermarket but in your case on the bl**dy motorway :)

    always happens when you least expect it to...let me know when your free and ill come across re the 355 prep

    Are you being crude Robert, or was that a genuine question?

    A) It's the perfect way to spend a Sunday Morning

    B) They give an adrenalin rush

    C) They keep you fit

    D) You can look over hedges into other peoples gardens
    and do a leaflet drop to those with rubbish landscaping
    skills

    No, it was an entirely genuine question. In restrospect, it might be interpreted as crude... I apologise.

    I think I felt too much of the adrenalin rush- I guess that's why I stopped riding!
