This is the time of year when the great carwash takes place. The depth of winter is a pointless time for this task. Gleaming paintwork stays gleaming for about 3 minutes when the roads are as muddy as farm tracks and the potholes brim over with deep dark dirty water.
March roads aren’t exactly sun-kissed and dusty, but it does begin to be a bit more worthwhile to get the bucket and sponge into action.
And what a great job for small children to help out with!
