Anyway I started driving and kept having to tell myself, 'change gear, change gear'. But I coped and the card survived. It was like driving in a noddy car but I coped. It did make my driveway seem very big though.
My car passed the MOT and service with flying colours although it still cost over £200. Majority being labour, but at least I know it's ok for next week when I take it up to Appleby Magna for the house party.
Didn't do much the rest of the day, have got a bad toothache and am trying to get the courage to ring the dentists cause I know I am going to have to have root canal treatment and that will hurt.
Thanks for reading.
