My concern is for Ms Spatchcock. Will you use your good offices to secure the services of an appropriately shod local lothario? It wouldn’t do for her to be going home unfulfilled.

You obviously have an Internet connection, could you not use it to, like, download sexy music?

Fuck that. I’m just getting into Woob. One of my favourite albums, and they’ve gone to bed.

Also, I think I may have prickly heat.

My Uncle Geof was (still getting used to “was” rather than is) one of those uncles that every kid should have. He was always funny and always had time for me, on top of that he was an unrepentant petrol head. When I was young he would always get me doing jobs round his workshop or cleaning whatever classic sports car he had at the time, the reward for which would be a gloriously fast spin out in it. I can still remember bombing down the Radley/Oford road at 100mph in a TR6, what a grin it put on my face as an 8 year old. I can also remember telling my mum and dad about it , my Uncle Geof in the background grinning to himself as he saw the look of horror on my mum’s face.

He would take me to the Motor Show at Earls Court, an event I would remember more for the sight of the bikini clad models alongside the cars than the cars themselves, I have a feeling Uncle Geof would approve of that memory :). He worked for Austin and then BL as an upholsterer (leatherwork) on cars made at the Cowley plant and continued to enjoy his cars and motorbikes well into his retirement.

Unfortunately Uncle Geof passed away recently and for reasons various I found myself having no memento of him other than some great memories and photographs. It tuns out that Uncle Geof left me some money in his Will and after having discussed it with my better half I’ve decided to buy a watch that reminds me of him and the great times we enjoyed together.

Given his love for all things automotive it makes sense to buy a watch that has a motoring heritage . I’ve research the Heuer offering and some of the vintage 70s stuff (Montreal, Silverstone, Camero etc) really does appeal.

However, befoe I set my sight firmly on one of those any advice on whats else is out there would be much appreciated (Nothing that looks like a divers watch though).

I have a couple of months to go before I buy, so plenty of time to read up on a few others.
