It has arrived! The final piece of the Apocalypse Motor is within my grasp! I will be collecting it from Martin after work.
He has proposed that we do the exchange over a drink. Again, an excellent suggestion. He appears to be a natural at this. He was delighted to learn that I am really looking forward to seeing him tonight.
