Must be something to do with my struggles in the snow on Sunday and Monday – or maybe my long-lived and long-running Passat is still coming to terms with the question I was recently asked, ‘Do you require accommodation for your driver?’ But both last night and the night before parts of the undershield banged down onto the road. Last night I ended up crawling around with a torch underneath the front of it on the hard shoulder of the M90 and then drove home the last 15 miles with it scraping on the ground – trying to avoid man-hole [inclusive language again!] covers which might rip it off finally. Thank you to my kind and friendly garage for sorting it out. Strange that one can view the Day of Judgement with relative equanimity but problems with car or internet connection count as a Major Crisis. Time to get things into proportion!
