Phew!

Relaxing in Arnside

Relaxing in Arnside

At last! Piggle is now installed at Hilary Gilpin’s place, being stripped, and I’m attempting to recover from the traumas of the day with a welcome drink down the hill.

My problems didn’t end with the restoration of the Pigmobile to working condition, btw. I promptly got back onto the motorway in the wrong direction, and wasted at least 25 further minutes driving towards home in a desperate search for somewhere to turn round.

We finally managed the manoeuvre at the junction of the M6 with the M55, and within minutes of resuming our journey North I had to take speedy avoiding action to steer round a huge shredded lorry tyre lying in the centre of the middle lane!

Then when I finally arrived at Hilary’ and dropped Piggle off I bent forwards to give P a wee kiss, and the little bugger reached up with her paw and almost scraped my eye out! I think it’ll be bruised tomorrow.

Heaven only knows what the journey home will bring… It’s certain to involve traffic jams, though, given the time. Sigh…

    Speaking as one who has done exactly that (mis-fuelling) I do sympathise! Fortunately I didn’t start the engine or switch on the ignition to initiate the fuel pump, so the rescue was a lot cheaper than it might have been. Makes you feel a right chump though.

    As an aside, why does your blog now show only the left third of the pictures until you click on them – or is that me being a chump again?

      Posting from phone and not worked it out properly yet.

      To put my traumas into context, just had text from Dee to say she’s awaiting vet to put her darling Blink to sleep. A very sad end to the afternoon.

    No it isn’t you, I only see about ¼ of the bigger pictures.

      Howdy, Andrew.

      It’s because I’ve not yet worked out how to post piccies properly when posting to my blog from my phone. Will have to have a proper play with it some day soon x
