    I see more than enough of my face walking past the bathroom mirror, don't want to see it any more than I have to and wouldn't want to subject everyone else to it either!  :D

    I think profile pictures do help quickly recognise a poster though so chose a character with a similar personality to my own.   :p

    It's nice to see your faces but I get why some of you prefer not to.  Unfortunately, you can't get away from my mug glaring back at you :D

    Thats good. I have heard driving can be therapeutic / enjoyable for some people.
    You would be happy driving an old banger then? Lol. Are you into car mechanics such as tv programs Pinp My Ride?

    Driving a car where you don't fret about every little scratch it gets can be quite liberating! With a new car, you have to be mindful of every potential cause of minor damage like overhanging hedges or branches or bumps in the road, whereas with a banger you can just drive and if it gets a ding or a scratch it doesn't matter!

    No I'm not particularly into any car programs apart from Top Gear but that's more for the comedy value haha.

    Do you drive? Or, have you driven in the past?

    Thats good mate. 
    I am unable to drive due to my sight problems. It took me ages to accept but I have managed to see past it now. I just think of all of the money I am saving.

    I’m sorry to hear that but yes you are quite right. Before I learnt to drive I had a lot more money to play with each month than I do now!!
