    More car problems

    Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

    My car has stopped working again. I’m beginning to think Derek knew what was coming when he got rid of it. I’m getting sick of that engine light. It’s been fine the last few weeks then all of a sudden 5 minutes after leaving work the car started juddering heavily and the engine light was flashing. The guy at the dealership told me the flashing light is rare and its best not to drive like that. The user’s manual said it means there is a problem with the catalytic converter, which I hope is still covered for another 20,000 miles.

    It started near work and fortunately Brenda was able to find a VW dealer on the net nearby so I brought it over but the garage is closed so I have to leave it here overnight. So I’m sitting here with my free coffee and free wifi (thankfully I now have a laptop for work which is with me) waiting for Brenda to drive the 50 miles down here to pick me up. If it happened next week she’d be driving about 2 miles from our new place!

    The job hunt continues

    It wasn’t so much a resolution but I’ve started coming in to the university library for the day. So I am currently working the same hours as Brenda but my job consists of looking for a job. Its been quite productive so far, the library has wifi so I can just spend the day looking for and applying to jobs, if I stayed at home I wouldn’t get anything done as her whole family is there at the moment.

    The only problem is the lack of tea and coffee making facilities. The coffee side of things should be sorted soon once classes start again and they re-open the student union Starbucks.
