On my way home on Thursday my car broke down. The RAC turned up, got me to turn the engine over and then immediately declared that the timing belt had snapped. That *will* lead to top-end damage so the car is screwed. Not worth repairing due to the age.
So my day off consisted of driving round second-hand garages to find a car. Luckily I did find one and have the cash put aside to buy one. As it doesn’t need an MOT, was serviced only recently I can drive it away today. Back on the road (and more importantly my missus gets her car back) so work next week will be considerably easier.
