Well, the ferrying mission went as planned. Drove to my house in my Dad’s car yesterday without incident, got the old car washed at Tesco’s (as all the other car washes were closed) and showed off my new HiFi to my Dad in the evening.
Today we drove back down in convoy and, despite it being Friday the 13th there were no problems. 🙂 I even managed to get 43.8mpg out of the old girl, probably helped by the heavy traffic reducing the speed for most of the M5 down to about 60mph.
As for the cold, it’s still being annoying. It’s now getting down to my chest and into my sinuses. Still, it shouldn’t last too much longer.
