My lovely, but very badly behaved van broke down the other day (again!), left me completely stranded in the middle of the road – I had to be towed home by a very kind passer by with the right kind of vehicle (land rover).
Tired of constantly being in the hands of the mechanics I decided I was going to find the fault and fix it myself. So I did. I went from a dead van to one roaring to glorious healthy life after I’d diagnosed the fault, bought the bits I needed for the repair, performed the surgery (it was touch and go there for a while) and then started her up – bingo!! There are few things in life as satisfying, take it from me. Then as a reward, and to calm my frayed nerves, I went here for a walk…

Those small big things in life that bring such joy 🙂
Yes indeed! Thanks Elina 🙂
Well done! That looks a beautiful place to go for a walk!
Thanks Jo, and yes it was stunning last night 🙂
It’s empowering to find a way of stepping out of dependencies like that (those that kind of block you), isn’t it?!
And such a beautiful place to walk…
Have a happy weekend – much love!
Thanks Steffi, yes it was nice to do something mechanical for myself and for it to actually work! Have a great weekend too 🙂
Go You! How did you find the fault? Google or Youtube or Spock like logic? What a beautiful place for a walk 🙂
This particular fault was pretty obvious although the fix was a little technical – I learnt it all from a brilliant mercedes van online forum, gold mine of information and support 🙂
If only other online forums were as helpful!
I’d fix your van myself for a walk along there!
I wish I could have managed that! It’s great to discover new skills. And rewarding. Your walk on that beautiful beach is of course reward enough!
🙂 Thank you
