There I was pulling out from my local One Stop - other convenience stores are available - when I was flagged down by a chap in a big white van who was coming the other way.

As we held up the traffic whilst having a chat - driver's window to driver's window, if you know what I mean - he asked me whether it was my car that he has seen regularly on the M4 for the last few years. Taking a closer look at his van, I recognised the markings and realised that I had blasted past him quite often, so I had to confirm the sightings. He then proceeded to talk warmly about how it must be the only green B3S estate around and how he would still give me "strong money for it" as it was "gorgeous".

As I drove away, I was grinning from ear to ear Very Happy
