I have been getting the ABS warning light come on and also the TC (traction control, so i'm told!) light and as i use my wagon to tow a horse trailer i am fanatical about keeping it in tip top shape. (geeky points maybe!) So, I thought, i would call in and see our mechanic. (that was my first mistake, should have just rung him up and booked it in!!)
Right then, he said, hop over and i'll give it a drive - my first thought was well i bet it goes ok for him and he'll just think 'woman drivers'! I would point out that we have had Chris as our mechanic for years and he is just brilliant. Any hooo, there is space round the corner from his garage where we could drive it so off we went.
now then, he said, lets give it a go - warning bells started going off in my head, especially when he said 'hold on'! We took off like a bat out of hell heading towards a building..... and i shut my eyes as he slammed on the brakes.... well, they worked a treat, but no warning lights came on...
just do it one more time he said - oh my god, i then remembered that in his spare time he races cars!!!! Off we went again and all i could think of was i was glad i had not had my lunch!!
The be all and end all of it was he thinks there is something wrong with the electrics as there is nothing wrong with my brakes, and i think i probably have whiplash to prove it!!! (slight exaggeration probably!)
Now on to calmer things - my stitching angel swap - i have finally completed two projects, one was of my own design (nothing to get too excited about i can tell you!) and the other was a slight adaptation of a design.
here is a sneaky peek--
The person i am stitching for loves all things vintage so have included a few little extras in the swap.
I just hope my stitching comes up to scratch and she is one very talented lady and makes the most gorgeous scarves!
Think i might just go and have a cuppa now and settle my nerves - pity its afternoon - could do with something stronger!!!
