Safe & Secure

You may remember a while back we had a bit of a "Surprise" when Olivia's bonnet flew open while travelling.

Well, Favourite Man - being handy and all that - made Olivia a pair of hood sticks to make sure that doesn't happen again. We fitted them a while ago and they've worked most excellently.

As you can see, they're strong and metal and stick up through the bonnet - held closed with an R-clip.

A few weeks ago we moved Olivia from her outside parking to the in-yard one, and noticed that some idiot had nicked the R-clips! This is Africa - these things happen. If it's not tied down and secured it disappears. Unfortunately.

So shortly thereafter I took a trip to our local locksmith. Olivia's bonnet is now VERY secure....
