Hi All, I have booked us a table at La Villa in Montrichard for 19:30 on Friday evening. We can meet at the Carrefour car park in the centre of Montrichard at 19:15 andwalk down, or in Thenay at 18:45. So get your livers in training!
New roof aerial fitted. I hope I never have to remove that damned roof lining again. It tried my patience. So radio working even if the cassette side doesn't. Special adaptor bought on ebay which fits into the cigarette lighter and will allow two sockets (one for the mini fan and one for the GPS) plus two USB ports for recharging the smartphones. Front rubber mat has extra 10mm close cell foam added. Roof lining, seats and rubber flooring all washed and vacuumed. Tomorrow I will wax the car for the umpteenth time, check the tyre pressures, blacken the tyres, fill up the tank and get some euros from Sainsbugs. Spanish and Portugese country stickers ready for when we cross the borders. Maps and old Eurocamp map book ready.

And it gets worse. Renee sailing down the autoroute between Roux and Chartres when she coasts to a halt. All the usual checks but coil or electronic ignition seems at fault. A short while later Derek, Becky and family stop by and after a fruitless spell, drive on to the rally. Recovery truck arrives after three hours, more fruitless checks, takes us to garage in Chartres. New cool fitted, still won't start but garage about to close. More checks tomorrow but we may need a new distributor which won't be here until Monday Tuesday. We may get a hire car tomorrow depending on what they find. Many many thanks Derek.
