Merry Christmas from British Sleigh-Land…

Why bother with a gang of farty Reindeer when you could thrust across the midnight sky in an Austin Princess? Ho Ho Ho… oh.

Carperv Christmas Card

This badly made e-card is now at least a year old. Unfortunately I was too busy moving house to build a new one. Sorry. I may come across as cheap, but I do donate to charities and this year I gave two homeless people food. Well, one guy said he wasn’t hungry but he fancied a can of cola. I bought him a six pack. It felt like the right thing to do.

My mum always said I was special

With Fifth Gear filming over for the year (two series back to back made 2012 a manic one), I was so chuffed to win an award. I think I’m allowed to call myself the ‘HeadlineAuto Broadcast Journalist Of The Year 2012’. Many thanks to everyone who chose me. It was a massive – but pleasant – shock. I will personally aim to make 2013 even more inspiring, informative and leftfield.

Oh, and if Mrs Carpervert is reading this YES I will be thinning out the hoarded tat in the conservatory via ebay asap. Does anyone want to buy an original Matra Rancho sales brochure?

In 2013 I’ll be trying to drive this thing fast too…
