Went on holiday, sun shone, broke down

OK, so it wasn't all bad, in fact the sun shone in Cornwall pretty much all week (more on that soon). But the story of the week was the car breaking down on Tuesday. It's a long story, but the outcome is this: suspected fuel pump failure, £700 plus labour, so I'm looking at ITRO £1200, just after paying out over £500 for a new cambelt, service, brakes and MOT just before we went away. My Dad has kindly lent us his car for the week, but cheesed off doesn't even begin to describe it. AND I have to get it towed to the dealers – what happened to garages having tow trucks? Thanks to the guys at Motortech in Looe for looking after it and running a diagnostic, and the AA for getting me/it home.

    Actually the Mr. Test one is a bit of a mystery.

    Rich towed me down to Allen Ford last night in his lightweight tuned V8 Land-Rover. Fastest/loudest tow I've ever had. :-)
