Oh woe is me.....

I went to Georges Tradition in Long Eaton for my tea after work. On the way back, around 5pm, terrible grinding as I went to turn left and then lost my gears :o( Well I was not amused, I am due to drive down to Somerset a week on Monday for a few days with my crafting pals and I thought that my holiday money would be gone for a new gearbox or some such thing. Anyway, I sat reading for an hour until my breakdown service arrived. He quickly had a look and told me it wasn't the gear box, it was an outer CV joint that had broken up so it will ONLY be about £100 instead of the dreaded £500 or so PHEW! Don't think my garage works Saturday morning so may have to wait until Monday now :o(
On a positive note, at least it's happened now and not while I am on the motorway next week!
I will let you know how it goes.
