Don`t worry about it, photos have a mind of their own on this site and end up which ever way they want to depending on wind direction :scared:

On a farm ,near Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.
Peeing it down.
The farmer sends for us when he's short of rainfall.
Our work here is done.
Dentist and hospital appointment later today.
In the light of the weather forecast, we're looking for some hard standing,for the next few days.

Trev, I believe you have a "government test centres" in NI.

The trouble with mot testing over here is most of the time garages are trying to invent extra repairs.

Good luck with your test on Friday !

just because it's run by the govt doesn't make it any harder to get a bent ticket.

hi
round here there are garages who give a free re-test even if you take it
away for repairs. so no incentive to fabricate work. the government run
ones are full of self important burocratic little hitlers who will fail it on stupid
things with no free re-test.

I used to use a "government mot test" centre at Hendon very near the RAF museum.

It used to take 3 chaps in white dust coats, the guy under the car used to have a microphone to speak into a public address system to give instructions to the guy in the car rocking the steering, working the brakes etc.

BUT this was 40 years ago when I was running a hot rod, also doing all the mechanical work.

BUT they were fair there was no bias, they knew their job.

I would prefer to go for a mot where they do not do repairs, in commercial garages there is pressure on the "tester" to provide repair work for the workshop.

Back on subject, I will be shopping from home today.

We enjoyed Ghent. Stayed 2 nights at car park with permitted parking for motorhomes. Free. No services. 51.045569. 3.702761. About a 25 min walk to the historic centre. You can pay for a walking tour, but the TIC has super small sized guides with info about all the buildings and a suggested walking route.

Other places we stayed are:
Poperinge centre car park. 50.853377 2.723494. Free. Hop museum, execution site and Talbot House worth seeing.

Sixt abbey / Sixtusbos. 50.898120 2.709870 new Commercial aire 12 incl elec, but close to the abbey that makes the best beer in the world, probably. No tours of abbey or brewery but you can sit in a cafe and taste the 3 beers and stagger home.

Ypres. 50.835839. 2.90536. New town aire 8 incl electric. 1 for 90 litres, other servs free. 1.9km along mostly paths to centre. Obviously a lot to see and take in here.

I use the same apps as you, but also CC.com, and I have the book and the app for Camperstop (app more up to date with new aires).

Have fun. Having not been a beer drinker, rather taken with all the brun.

We were going to play out all weekend, at a C&CC meet,on grass. It was pouring down and the forecast is drab.
We've chickened out and are on a hard standing, in a suburban car park.
At least we can go to the cinema and watch Dunkirk.
The 3 nights camping fees will just about pay for our seats.
Can you still get those double ' love ' seats on the back row?
