At last some pictures!!
This is my Grandfather, Grandmother, Aunts & Uncles - my Dad's the one in the shorts. This was taken on the grass bank behind Clock House in Broadchalke, Wiltshire. And to the right is a picture of my Grandfather in his Army Uniform - thanks to David for letting me scan his copy!
This is, of course, my gorgeous Fiancée, Pauline - who is the love of my life and my world - with her smashing Daughter Paige - what a great kid - and a testament to her Mums great upbringing...
This is David & I very drunk (notice we're supporting each other)
after a Greek night on Holiday in Crete Sept 2000, and with it is me on my 40th Birthday,
I went to The Dominican Republic Spring 2002, this is our Hotel in Playa Dorada. Lovely place to visit, very poor, but very scenic and cheap!
You might have seen this one before - it's me sat on a Formula Palmer Audi at Bedford Aerodrome Race Circuit - I'd just finished in a race in one of the (mine was covered in mud where I'd span it off!) I got to drive several cars - Audi TT, S4, Integra Type R, Subaru Impreza STi, 4X4's (crap), Caterham 7 - and the best of the day A Lotus Elise which I got my best placings in! The Audi was VERY difficult to drive, I thought I'd breeze it, so I stalled it 3 times, spun it and got placed 3rd from bottom, hmmmm, just need a bit more practice - Please.... For my 40th Karen paid for me to go to Castle Combe to drive a Formula Ford, lot easier than the Audis, and I got high praise for my driving ability in the Ford Focus RS' (but then again I had driven down in the Ti which has more power and scarier understeer, but a very similar diff system, so maybe I had a better start than the other people on the day) Cars themselves would push about a ton, which seems mighty fast with your arse an inch above the ground!
I never thought this pic would happen - it's me getting my 10 Year award from work! Anyone who was there will also remember the crappiest and longest speech in all of history! All I can say in my defence was sorry - I was a bit drunk!
Egypt 2004, Sharm el Sheikh, blimey what a cheap holiday! Fantastically hot, and the hotel - Amar Sina, just outside of town was superb. I'm afraid to say I got a dose of the trots on the last day which made for a nervous flight home, but there you go first time I've ever had anything and I always have all the Salads and Ice Cubes etc.... Would definitely go again and I really will sort out my Padi Certificate!
Mail me if you have a pic too!
I'm bored with this Clivey
