Today after taking some kids fishing in the morning I replaced the brake rotors on my car. When we had the brake pads done on holidays the mechanic told me the the rotors were ‘totally rooted’. I don’t think this is a technical term, but I understood what he meant…

So today I spent the afternoon removing and replacing them, bearings etc. Despite my fairly lame mechanical skills it was all going very well until the final bolt… it took me 40 mins to get that bolt in… what a bugger!

Still hopefully all is done for a while.

I have just returned from a neighbour’s barbecue – its 8.45 and I am ready for bed – sun, sand, and hard work (as well as two glasses of red wine) are enough to make a man want to sleep…
