Hello everbody,hope you are well and earning enough. As the title may suggest this has not been a good week. I have been back to the garage for more “running repairs”, why do they call them that? I mean if the cab was running it wouldn’t need repairing would it!
Anyway I had to have another loan cab which was a rather nice TX2 but it seems that this one should have come with its own fuel station as it used diesel like it was going out of fashion.
When I got my cab back,it was quite a relief, is it just me or do you grow into a vehicle like a relationship? You get to know all its little rattles and knocks,which switches are where and you can reach out and turn things on without looking.
Once again the garage have done a great job and the cab is running better than ever,it is doing nearly 30 mpg on an average day which is the best it has done in the 6 years that we have owned it!
I went to work on Sunday afternoon this week and had a day of running between stations and avoiding roadworks,it seems that the utilities companies use the weekends to dig holes everywhere,now I agree that this is better that closing roads during the week but they could give us some advance notice,maybe they could put a sign at the top of a road if they are going to close it rather than let us get halfway down before we find the a great big hole and a load of people looking in to it!
Last Friday I had quite a good nights work and was going to see my daughter for breakfast before going home. so when I stopped outside The Whitehouse to use the loos and a fella came over to the cab to ask me if I took credit cards I was half and half about taking the job. But I said “yes ,depending on where you are going,”. How much to Gatwick was the answer, a deal was struck and away we went,a decent end to an otherwise problematic week.
Cheers and I will be back soon, Del Boy.
