It is after 4pm and I have only just got on to my blog.
We’ve had more snow, though it’s not pitched, but at one stage, it was quite a little blizzard of minute snow balls blowing horizontally across the window.
The morning has been spent playing with numbers and finances, and the good news is that when we come to change our car, my insurance is not going to go through the roof on our models of preference. Getting the necessary cover to drive another vehicle can be done over the phone in a matter of minutes, though some garages offer a 7 day get you home policy cover.
After a restless night, I was awakened at 8am by my phone beeping a text arrival. It was the Hyundai garage giving details of a website link for a service report on our car which we hadn’t asked for. We had already been given a ‘traffic light’ list of recommendations the first time we visited which showed that our tyre inflation kit was out of date and they wanted £102 for a new one. We got 2 at £8 each suitable for the job elsewhere.
Loads of amber suggestions (like 4 new tyres at £62 each), and an air conditioner clean and filter replacement at £102, so we didn’t bother to open it.
Then around 3pm we had a phone call from the sales rep we’d spoken to following up on our interest in an I30, something we had just casually commented on, and she seemed surprised that we had decided not to keep the I10 now. I asked her to remove us from her database as we were being inundated with texts and emails (five of each at the last count).
We did manage a walk into town this morning though, so that brought us neatly up to lunch time when we got back, settling down just before 2pm to half a pasty each, baked beans, and some wedges for me. Hubby managed very well, and has also had rice pudding.
