I dropped the car off this morning at the garage. They wanted it for 9am. Janet followed me and brought me back home. They never give a time for it to be collected, until they have had a look at it. It had a service while it was in there. They rang me at 1pm to say it was ready. I rang Janet and told her I didn't want a lift, as I am going to walk to the garage. It was 3.4 miles. Most of it is road walking, but I know a way to come off the road and follow a farm track. 
It was very windy, but thankfully no rain. 

And the car has passed the MOT test. Yipeeeeee. No need to change it just yet, it's a good one. £225, paid with cash. 

Catch ya later. Toodle pip. 


  1. Yipee! It's always a relief when there is nothing to be done. I love my 12yo Ford and have no plans to replace it. Paid for, fuel efficient, and does the job.

    1. I have had several Fords. Two Cortina estates, an Escort, and now my third Focus estate. I think they are reliable.

    2. I've never had a bad Ford and we joke that our driveway looks like a Ford car lot. Everything from Focus to F-150 pick up trucks.

      The only car I would describe as a "lemon" was a Jeep! Couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Started to go wrong before 1000km driven
