Well, onwards & upwards. We'll be car hunting sometime. Somehow, they managed to get into the lock-up, by pass the Mazda alarm, and drive it away. It may be stolen/recovered...who knows...but it had 300 miles of fuel in it. That's what happens when you drive something nice & different.
Mrs Swannie did something similar once. Drove to MK shopping centre, shopped till she dropped, stood waiting for a bus, friend spotted her, gave her a lift home. Sue walked in, my first reaction wasn’t, “oh, that’s a lot of shopping bags” (shoes, handbags etc) No, I said “where’s the fecking car” Realisation set in, then nearly wet herself laughing

Having just filled in my Old Geezer licence application I glad they don't ask about memory problems, I "lost" my car after a night out and being a good boy walked home. 2 hours traipsing the streets until I found it............almost opposite the venue !! Glad all ended well for you
I remember about 12-13 years ago, I got home, parked my 5 on the verge. Got into my Transit and moved it onto the verge. Then put my 5 into the garage. Then got back into my Transit and moved it back in front of the garage. Then went to move my 5 and...........SH*T, it's gone. Immediate panic, as I could hear a car accelerating away up the road, even though i couldn't see it. Straight on the phone to the rozzers to report it, and it was only 2 or 3 mins into the conversation, that I remembered............yes you got it..........I'd already put it in the garage. Much backtracking and apologies by me, and couldn't get off the phone fast enough!!
