I wasn't. Wigan messed me about then our fence blew over in the storms...which robbed me of a wedge of cash.

Sat sulking during the afternoon after I cancelled the order. Couldn't sleep at night. Browsed Autotrader at 4am, like you do, and saw this discounted to cost to get ready for the 2021 models. Piaggio are running a 0% 24 month finance - so that was that. By 10am I was in Peterborough and lobbing my bank card at the lad.

Up to 200ish miles now having taken a break from work to go see canals, the Battle of Naseby (not still happening, don't bother), and the reason why none of my post is being delivered - that pair didn't bother moving for the five minutes I was having a vape.
