Oh by crikey...

Sarah's car - which has been with the local Peugeot folks in Watford for the past few days - needs a new engine. There's apparently no compression in one of the cylinders. This means more to Sarah, a proper petrolhead, than it does to me, for whom a car has four wheels and goes from A to B. Unless it's a Robin Reliant.

I'm a pretty novice driver, and I was kind of worried that maybe I'd mishandled it a bit, but Sarah assures me that given that the car is a mere 3½ years old, I'd have had to have done some pretty major off-road driving that I'd not told her about to have that result. The M25, I'm informed, doesn't count, even though it does sometimes feel like a bit of an unearthly battlefield on occasions.

Well, I'm relieved that it's not my fault. We're hoping that we can dig up the service history and persuade Peugeot to do it as a goodwill thing.

We don't need this right now.

On the bright side, everything's slotting into place for a house move at the end of the next month. Which is all kinds of YAY! after waiting so long.
