Hello from a new(ish) member!

Postby Markyboy » Mon Jan 22, 2007 9:17 pm

Hi there

I thought although I've posted a couple of replies here and there I would properly say hello in post all by itself.

I've owned my Roadster for a couple of weeks now and can say hand on heart that I love every minute I spend in the car.

I live in Edinburgh so see plenty of 5's and Roadsters around and have just started flashing other owners (on flash backs yet :( ) I guess not everyone is a member of the forums it owners club. I'll keep trying.

I see that there is a member from Arbroath? That's my hometown - nothing really to shout about but something in common other than the cars :)

I'll keep an eye out for you.

I say Arbroarh is my hometown but I've lived in Edinburgh for 12 years so this is most definitely home now. I was born and bred in Arbroath and only go back a few times a year to visit friends and family.

Of course I miss the smokies mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I usually buy some if I'm back for a weekend or get my father in law or parents to bring some through if they are visiting.

There's something fishy about you. "Smokies"

Hello from another relative newbie here to you :D

I used to live in Edinburgh as a student, great place for a night out :wink:

Being a poor student my cars at the time were heaps of junk but that made it handy for a bit of touch parking when blocked in as normal but most of the time I used the bus or bike, cheaper and faster.

Back in my home town again now but I really do miss Edinburgh, it really is a place that gets under your skin, bit the the MX5 :D

I also used to live in Edinburgh when I was a student at crappy Napier! Now I'm at a proper Uni in Glasgow :wink: but I'm still in Edinburgh a lot seeing the girlfriend! I'll look out for you!

Few of my mates were at Uni in Edinburgh... mostly Hairy-Hat Watt.

Welcome to the forum Mark! :D

Napier was the place I went to also, but that probably had more to do with my bad grades at school and Napier being the only place that was stupid/desperate enough to let me in. I thought it was ok and a lot less stuck up than those Edinburgh uni types and especially those Herriot lot :P

I even know someone that left their uni to come to Napier on purpose, although it was Abertay that he left :lol:

I used to be a student up in Aberdeen,Robert Gordon Uni, mmmmm there were some good days and nights out up there...

I studied BSc Architectural Technology at Napier then went to work in Glasgow whilst doing part time BArchitecture at the Mackintosh School of Architecture/Glasgow School of Art/Glasgow University!
