Then this lovely car developed a NOISE.
I tried not to appear panicky, but time was ticking by and I wanted to keep my appointment, but this car needed mending. Then joy of joy it just so happened we were within a few miles of one of the few specailists who could provide us with the solution, a new alternator. So after a phone call, and another on the way there because we got lost, we arrived, drove straight in and within a couple of calm hours, swallows flying overhead and Classic fm playing , we were on our way. Thankyou Adrian Pease of Peacock Engineering.
Becky at Buckenham Galleries was very understanding of our delay. ( I do try to be efficient but sometimes it just doesn't work) and in her gallery now are some new paintings of Grace the border collie.
