Steve is right, I need a hobby; something productive to do when it is not flyable. So I am going back to my badly neglected Austin 101 restoration. Seeing the cab emerge from under a clutter of tools, when I tidied the workshop this afternoon, tugged at my J-Type heart strings. It has been at least 18 months since I did anything on her, and it it ate years of time before that (I have had to teach myself everything as I have gone along - mechanics, metalwork, welding, etc), but I have started, so I'll finish.
And when the weather is good, I will drop everything and go flying.
