Trouble is brewing
Anyone who knows me over the last year knows that I've been plagued with car trouble. So much so, that last year it nearly put the mockers on the whole wedding thing when our silver Clio blew up.
Curse of the cars strikes again.
This time, we have - in the blue corner - the Renault Grand Espace. Fault - something horribly wrong with the clutch. Quote - £900 to fix. In the red corner - the Renault Clio. Fault - unsure, possibly the electronic control unit and a vacuum leak coupled with immobiliser woes. Quote - £unknown, with a starter figure of £105 for work already done that didn't cure the problem.
So that's a cool grand before both cars are anywhere near fixed.
And what have we here? Oh, just a wedding reception! With about £2k to pay on it still, money that is all we have, sat in the bank. Waiting...for a wedding reception....or a broken car. Or two.
It may just be that we have to cancel the reception. Or downscale it.
The next 12 hours will tell - watch this space.
