Garage: out of 10

10/10 for booking my car in for MOT straight away within a couple of days
10/10 for offering me a courtesy car when I mentioned I might have difficulty getting a lift

3/10 for booking the car in for a service when I'd specifically said it had been serviced in Nov and that was only 6,000 miles ago.
0/10 for failing to record the bit about the courtesy car in the appointment book!

But with a bit of luck, saved by:
8/10 for listening when I explained that I didn't want a full service, so much as the mysterious disappearance of oil problem to be sorted out. (this is why the mood is hopeful, I am hoping that this bit will actually happen).

11/10 for thinking outside the box, and not having a spare car available, offering me the garage van instead. Never driven a van before, but it got me home! I felt a right fraud with 'Sponsors of Walkhampton Football Team' emblazoned on my rear window though.

and another 10/10 for simply handing me the key rather than making me complete forms in triplicate and bring my insurance cert with me.

Much taken with this car, which was for sale there. But
a) I can't really afford it, and
b) I suspect it would be a bit cramped for the hounds.

But it's yellow! I love yellow cars...
