I was slowly and carefully starting to think I might get myself a second satellite dish for Christmas. One that would enable me to watch the BBC. Until last Thursday!
Because last Thursday the car started making a funny noise. Something wrong with the exhaust. And when my sister was here, it didn't go away. As a matter of fact, after I drove my sister to the airport and drove home again, there was an extra noise: a massive clanking underneath. Fortunately it stopped after a while (probably lost whatever was clanking).
Yesterday I was due to see somebody about
a horse my car. But his wife threw a spanner in the works by crashing her car. So, tonight I saw somebody about my car. And he quickly realised what was wrong. Something was hanging loose and there should have been a bit more as well. But since I lost that...
I took the loose hanging bit off, telling me I would need to get a replacement for it. And then he closed the hole that made the noise. Right now the car is sounding smooth again, but it is only a temporary fix, so I need to get it seen to as soon as possible. So, tomorrow night I will go back, hopefully with the needed spare part, which he then can install.
I wonder how long the car will go on. After all, nearly 18 is a good age! So, I have to rethink my finances and possibly even get myself a car loan to get myself a better car.
