We have arrived in Derbyshire. The van passed it’s VOSA test. One ball joint, new rear brakes and three wiper blades so good news.
The bad news is that twenty miles from my destination I lost about fifty percent of the engine power. No nasty noises. I’ll get on the case today in the light. Seems like a timing problem. It’s all I need at this time of year. Everybody diving off on holiday, coming back and going away again. It is going to be a nightmare but I’ll try and maintain a positive attitude.
I went shopping whilst the van was in for repair……Got a new pair of braces to hold my waterproof trousers up. Just as well It is pouring here. I also got myself an old model Kindle in Waterstones for £69.00p. It took me ages to register the damn thing, much repetitive poking of my finger and squinting at tiny writing….yes I did find that I can increase the font size but only after turning the air blue for thirty minutes and getting a nasty blister on my digit. After about an hour I managed to download a book. It was free.
Here it is………It is great and written in a very amusing style. I am not convinced that the author intended the humour……..It is reminiscent of ‘The Accent of Rumdoodle’. I suspect it is possible to download books onto the laptop and then upload to the Kindle. It’s a real pain using the reader. I’ll read the instructions.
