There are moments when I could just scream at the world and say “Why?”
I got within 4 miles of home this evening and my car dashboard lit up like a Christmas Tree with dire warnings of “Engine Malfunction”. Warning alarms sounded. A nasty looking yellow light came on too!
The car started to lose power. It was raining……
I kept going – as the car hadn’t stopped – I limped home.
On reaching home – inspection of the manual revealed I should have probably stopped immediately. Well I didn’t!
Now this week is mega busy as I am supposed to be throwing myself – ‘hook-line-and-sinker’ into the great office move-round. 12 days work without a break! Well I’m not going anywhere tomorrow! So my 70 mile commute isn’t happening tomorrow.
I’ve already phoned everyone and told them not to expect me and now I’ll have to chat up the garage and get them to look at it as a matter of urgency! They’re not good at urgent.
So I’ll no doubt have to hire a car to get me to and fro from work. And the really irritating thing is – it was booked in for a service on Thursday!
I suppose I should be thankful it happened 4 miles from home – it could have been a great deal worse. And I am thankful!
But sometimes it would be nice to have a man around to look after me and help! I’ve come over all weepy and pathetic!!
