My Car is very poorly.
Having bitten the bullet to go and get it mended for a broken fuel line, I have been informed (in a manner not dissimilar to an undertakers) that my real wheel bearings have also seized on one side. A sucking of teeth and a grimmace from the technician was all I needed to inform me that this was going to be expensive.
Having gone in to the service centre in the morning for what I thought would be a maximum of 2 hours has now turned into a day’s pain. I have ditched any attempt at getting in to work today and have instead settled for a walk in and around Crickhowell on the edge of The Black Mountains. As I write this I am currently sipping tea in a very nice Tourist Information Centre in the Village of Crickhowell. It is well earned having just walked around 5 miles. After this tea, I shall disappear to visit Crickhowell Adventre (a very nice gear shop) and then do another 3 or 4 miles before going back to pick up my car and a hefty bill…..
Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas everyone (sigh)
