  17. Im so pleased that we broke down today in the hills of north wales, since we have Ella we have had a occasionall noise that no one has been able to find as it stops as soon as you get underneath to look for it . But today the noise carried on and it turned out to be the fuel pump which had packed up ,so as we rolled to a stop outside a cottage ,the old couple that live there came out for a chat and guessed we had broken down,as they had one just like ours which they had only just got rid of 1 year ago ,




    The number plate on the breakdown van says it all .WTF
  18. Oh dear :-( just text you too
  19. Showing off aren't u.At least you got outta the front drive :( :(

    Barry Bus has also joined the club having fried his ignition bits and pieces when the charging regulator went AWOL :( And just 99 miles from home too but he did me proud. He managed to make it to Cornwall and was averaging 23mpg albeit with a few conking out moments. But enough was enough on the way home on a steep hill on the A303 with no hazard lights. So he was nursed to safety under all the power he could manage and we awaited for the big yellow to arrive.


    And all because l was carrying one of Moira's Budgies of Camper-doom. But not anymore.
