So who does what on the weekends?

Me, I commentate at a local stock car track over the summer months.
Also, I put up silly amounts of christmas lights every year (and it takes 2 months to plan the displays, 4 houses and counting)



04 plate Ink Blue 1.8 Duratec Ghia. Mods so far, club sticker on rear window and stereo upgrade, 4Q sticker on bootlid and Smurf hanging from rear bumper.

More mods to come as i\'m allowed to.

I agree, far too many, but i will not be beaten by the neighbours! Just a bit of fun for the kids really, but we do have people driving down our road just for the lights. A bit of cheer!!
