I'm Back On The Road!
Last Update: Sep 27, 2022
After 2 days of having no transport and feeling lost, my car is fixed and back on the road. I am so relieved!
The problem is, we get so used to our cars that we take them for granted. Then if we can't use them for some reason, we don't know what to do with ourselves.
Fortunately, Tony, my ex-partner, is a great mechanic. What Tony doesn't know about cars could fit on the back of a postage stamp! He found the problem (something to do with cylinders and plugs - I have no idea what that means) and fixed it.
I was able to go out shopping today and later I took Luna-dog to her favourite park, so that she could have a run around with her doggy pals, Bruno and Rosie. It was lovely to see them all having such fun, and I was happy too.
My car has been misbehaving for a couple of weeks now so to have it back to normal was so good. It felt so much more comfortable driving a car that wasn't hiccupping its way down the road and stalling at roundabouts/traffic lights/junctions.
Tony never takes any payment for doing my car, beyond the price of the parts. So I will make him his favourite dinner and spoil him. He deserves it. He likes liver and bacon with lots of onion gravy. I have to hold my breath while I'm cooking it, I can't stand offal of any description!
So thanks to Tony, I now have my freedom back. And you can't put a price on that.
