    Switched the auto wipers off earlier in the week due to frost and then today remembered that pressing the stalk in activates the wipers once! Had somehow forgotten that and had been switching the wipers on and off by turning the stalk just to wipe once.

    Well it's a lovely day here and it has given me the opportunity to give the old girl it's final polish for the winter. Now off to lunch with my Wife and Granddaughter to a new Turkish Restaurant that has recently just opened at the bottom of the high street. :)
