Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Being asked to clear out a room at work that no one has been in for a long time and its full of old floppy disks, printer cables, broken equipment etc and then find a bag at the back with a Nintendo Snes and full set of games.

Have a guess what I'm going to be powering up this afternoon.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Background - last July I replaced my 13 reg Ford Focus 1.0L Ecotec Titanium Estate with a Skoda Kodiaq, and gave the Focus to my son (made his life easier, and he was a named driver on it).

Since then, he has moved to Oxfordshire with his partner, and they bought a narrowboat, and having the car has been useful - two weeks ago, it packed up on him completely, and when a local garage looked at it, they said the heating matrix was shot, and the engine was completely borked (cracked valve and warped something or other). They said a replacement engine (if new) was over 7k, and the heating matrix another 1k, plus around 2k of labour - the car is only worth 5-6k, so seemed like a write-off.

I rang the garage we bought it from, and asked for some advice - they recommended take it to a local Ford Service Dealer (in Oxon, obvs.), and if we paid 100, the Service Dealer would give it a proper review.

My lad got it taken in last week, and it's now back on the road at no cost to him (except for 170 for a new clutch, which they recommended fitting, as it was 80% worn, but there would be no labour costs, as they removed the engine, etc. to replace it), and didn't charge the 100, either.

Because we had always had it serviced at a Ford Service Centre (mainly because they gave us free annual breakdown cover, picked up/dropped off the car, and gave us a courtesy car), and there was a history of this fault in other Focus', they did the 10k job free of charge.

Result!!!

That is great! Cars can be very costly indeed when they start to go wrong so this is like having a fresh new car again.

In-law has offered me a ticket for the England-Pakistan T20 at Headingley on Sunday - lunch first at a local bar, then a pleasant afternoon in the sun.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

With restrictions being lifted in Wales my team at work have tomorrow afternoon off for drinks (paid for by the company). I don’t normally do team afternoons out but it’ll be the first time I’ve physically seen them in 18 months so really looking forward to it.

I remember the first time they allowed me to work the ride instead of just standing taking the money
