Well a local garage agreed to fix my car for me, phoned the RAC again and gave them the addy of said garage, they said great, we will send a truck to tow you there.. (only a mile away)
I did remind them that my car is at the rear of a row of terraces so nothing bigger than a large tranny van would be any use..
You got it! 3 hours later a HUGE low loader turned up!!
The driver took the wheel off and managed to twist the broken spring round so it was not interfering with the wheel. (?) and put the skinny temp one on, then asked me to start the car...*the plan being to drive the car round onto the main road*
Hmm I was prepared to see what happened if the car was moved forward very very slowly.. But as it happened the battery was dead flat!! ???
Dunno how that happened! But anyway, he gave up and phoned in, he then told me the RAC would send a smaller truck tomorrow, and orf he went..
Meanwhile--my PC monitor seems to have packed up!! took ages to come on yesterday, didn't come on at all today.. So am using a lil 12 inch spare one I have..
Will ring viewsonic tomorrow ----- *sigh*
