Gecko has been experiencing various menopausal symptoms recently - hot flushes and short temper. It all came to a head when I noticed that the temperature gauge on the engine was reading 100+ deg instead of 80. We are now officially broken down and waiting for an engineer to sort us out.
This is a more complicated problem than I a car as the engine also heats our water for washing and charges our batteries for lighting.
Hence we will not get to the Cutweb rally at the Blue Lias - again!
I guess when we are running again we will take advantage of the forced delay and spend a few more days in Brum before moving south again.
