As Christmas Ends, Trouble Begins…

Well, what a Christmas that was! More food and booze than I ever though it were possible to ingest and a stockpile of presents that would embarrass Richie Rich. Nevertheless, all good things must come to an end and that is precisely what happened when I returned to work on the 29th December. First of all I was forced to detour all around Warwickshire. See this article for the reason why: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-12090085

Then, during my longer-than-expected commute to work I was faced with the sight that all car owners dread more than anything; the warning lights started flashing on my dash. This couldn’t happen at a worse time. Not only am I too poor after the Christmas festivities to afford any significant repairs, but most of the garages near where I live are either closed, or booked up for the next few weeks.

A little research in the car’s manual suggested that I had an emissions problem, brought about by a fault with the catalytic converter. Not being any kind of mechanic myself, I am going to have to take it easy on the driving until I can get my pride and joy to a garage. I am just hopeful that it can last the distance.

    Sometimes those warning lights are designed to come on at a certain mileage, to make sure you check an item or get a particular service done. Let’s hope that’s what happened! Happy New Year, I enjoy your blog.
