The garage have just phoned and said they've found several other electrical faults with the car....apparently our car make/model is notorious for them. Not sure when we'll get it back. Sounds like it's going to be another very expensive job - we've not recovered from the last one yet. I just hope the warranty will be enough to cover the bill, not sure what we'll do if it isn't.
I am struggling to stay positive - at least it's sunny today, I had a nice coffee morning with a friend, and we have enough food in the cupboards/freezer - for us and for Betty - to keep us going for quite a while.
I'm not going to say this year couldn't get any worse, because that would be tempting fate!! But I'll be bloody glad when it's over, and will hope that next year is a damn sight better.
Meanwhile, I've a doctor's appointment early Friday morning, for my flu jab and annual diabetes checks. If the car's not back by then, I'll have to cancel it. Bugger.
