Sabbatical: Week Two

Well, that’s the second week over with. And thank God it is. Covid is not much fun, and I appreciate that I’m getting it at a time when the strain is weaker and I’m fully vaccinated too.

But, bloody hell, I’m ready to move on.

Although I continued to do “things”, it hampered what I could do but, also, I felt quite weak and tired. None-the-less, stuff did happen.

Sabbatical: Week One

As I said initially, this week (particularly as schools were home) was always going to be a planning and build-up week.

However, it hasn’t quite ended how I wanted it to.

Sabbatical: Day Three

Half way through the first week of  my sabbatical.

Yesterday involved some baking with Lucie – a rather lovely lemon drizzle cake (I went heavy on the lemon so it has quite a zing to it). See the image below for how it turned out! Otherwise, it was a relatively quiet day.

Today, we met one of my brother-in-laws and his wife at Chatsworth House (or rather the farm and the surrounding grounds).

Sabbatical: Day One

So, I’m minutes (in terms of how long I’ve been awake) into my sabbatical. Needless to say, I’ve not done much so far.

I got back from a team meetup yesterday, tired and spending most of my time unpacking and catching up with family.

But what are my immediate plans?

Ford Puma 2020 vs 2022

Back in 2020, I bought a Ford Puma, not long after Ford had released it. Now, 2 years later, I have the newest edition.

Each time I’ve bought the highest specified model that I could but that has shifts in the last 2 years – e.g. the Vignale range for the Puma has been released, improving on the ST-Line X, which I had before.

But I thought, where I could unpick it, try and identify what’s changed in the intervening years, which doesn’t appear to be down to the model changes. I can’t guarantee all of this will be accurate, as a result, but I’ll give it a good try.

So, what have Ford changed on the Ford Puma?
