OK, here, as promised, are the first shots of my new toy – the rather splendid Jaguar XKR. It took my brother and I quite a while to locate the right model as there are plenty of grey ones (boring!!) or black ones (slightly less boring) out there – but we both felt that blue, specifically, Jaguar’s very rare Spectrum Blue, was the one!
Well done to colleagues and friends: Alex B, Kevin P and Carl G for correctly identifying the car, (and Jo for almost getting it right – my budget wouldn’t stretch to an XKR-S!) from the 10 clues I put on Facebook the week before. 👍👍👍👍👍
But shame on you Ian M for suggesting it was actually a canoe, after seeing the Facebook post mentioning it having ‘paddles’ – Doh!!!!
I picked it up today and had an opportunity to experience all sorts of roads on the 100-or-so mile journey home from the Dealer. Surprisingly, it averaged between 27 and 32 mpg (higher than I expected) at an average speed of 62mph.
My thanks to the very helpful team at Top Cars of Sheffield – Tony, Mark and Ollie, for their superb customer service and hospitality after my journey ‘up north’ by train. They met me at Sheffield station and ferried me to their specialist dealership about 10-minutes away! I felt good already!! 😁

I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
