I have been invaded by a nasty bug
Drove to Coromandel the Rapaura Gardens fro Taupo
yesterday. Lovely gardens great coffee and food in their
award winning restaurant we were away for just under 12 hours
around 400 kms. The bug really hit when I got home, no dinner
and then bed for 12 hours. .
This afternoon I drove down to the Library and parked
outside. When I got back to the car the battery had died and I had left my
phone at home. Luckily I was able to summon the wonderful AA Service who
jump started me so I could get over to Lake Engines.
On the way home yesterday I picked up a whole bunch of road metal
in the brakes and steering of my car in roadworks on SH26 -
thanks Fulton Hogan or whoever it was? They overdid
the amount of road metal they laid - they had a 50kph speed restriction
in place - big joke - it would have been suicide at that speed.
No vehicles were able to do more than around 20 for fear of sliding
and broken windscreens.
With the new battery and the $44 cost of ridding the stones a bill for over
$250 that is half my fortnights pension gone with the other half paying the mortgage.
