Funnily enough I've just come back from the same shop - it's one of the few
places over here that sells Biltong. Didn't forget SWMBO either so a nice
box of said chocs also went in the bag. Harry has build up the wine shop
nicely. Started off with a good selection of wines and beers but now brings
in some more exotic items for the more adventurous types. As long as he
keeps getting nice Barolo's and Appleton's XIV rum I'll be a happy man.

We clearly share the same psychology! Tomorrow the men arrive to do PVC
soffits, fascias etc. Last night the painter arrived, to ask for her
choice of colour, for the subsequent Snowcem job. Last week a Greek in
Onchan re covered my MX5 seats, in beautiful black and green leather.
When SWMBO asked how much, the answer was "expensive but nothing like
the cost of the house jobs". I'm told the Greek slipped up and told her,
in passing, but now't's been said.
Incidentally, I really went for leather purely from neccessity; honest.
I left it parked outside, all afternoon, on one of the recent very sunny
days. When I went to put the top up it looked as though one headrest had
been slashed. A closer look showed that the tweed effect Vinyl had
melted, in a straight line. I'd guess the sun had tracked across the
mirror, whose edge had focussed it on the headrest. We read of a narrow
boat that burned out, last year, when the sun focussed on a bull's eye
type of roof light, then onto a cushion, until it went up in flames.
Naturally a change to leather was essential, to prevent it happening again.

BTW, we were in Castletown yesterday. I took her for a tour of your
local Health Food shop. Brilliant. Some of the most mouth watering
"healthy" chocolates etc I've seen for years. Your local wine merchant
is one of the best on the Island; too.
