Doing ok here - plodding along with work (thankfully, even if it is not enjoyable atm); ZS is still causing us problems with it's desire to overboost even with the vanes wide open - so it's laggy as sin then wants to grenade itself... or we have the vanes operating and it just wants to blow the HG

You?

Just getting the ZS through its MOT.

Dead horn and non self-levelling lights, but should be sorted Thursday and retest Saturday.

You wonít be happy asking me that one!

2020 has not had many positives for me. Daughter #2 has had two cancelled weddings. I was furloughed for 6 months. Wife lost her job at the beginning of September, still waiting for her money. I lost mine last month. Buried our 17 year old cat a few days ago. ZT-T failed its MOT.

Letís see if i can find anything good from this.......

During Furlough I did a lot of work on the ZS. Now under cover until next year! Aiming to get it to Zed20.

maybe a long-awaited forum meet up, if Z20 if it happens.

Be good to see some Z's again.

Hope 2021 is more positive for you Mick.

Supplying the construction industry we never stopped, some depots were furloughed but we were kept open as we serviced Thames Water with all their clean water spares. That meant we picked up the work of four other depots and temporally increased our fleet from 5 trucks to 9 at one point with no increase in yard staff, it was nuts and although it has eased and all the other depots are back open except Swindon that has been closed we are still running 6 trucks and are still crazy busy. I am still averaging 10 hours a week overtime, which, if I am honest, I could do without, there is more to work than live.
