One thing that irks me is that when you have a problem with a tyre, they want you to buy 4 new tyres. What a waste!
Not sure who ' they' are. Generally I find that there are deals to buy 3 and get the fourth free. On previous cars I would have the tyres rotated when I had a service but that seems not to be done now that the spare cannot be used in the rotation. I never have a 'problem' just that they show me that usually 2 (front?) are getting down towards the legal limit. When I replaced those 2, it was only a year before the other 2 needed replacing and I did not get the 4th tyre free so next time I bought 4 at once.

I had forgotten about checking water in battery. I am afraid I never check anything these days. I might check the oil before going on a long drive but it is over 15 months since I drove more than 100 km away from home. I had to fill the windscreen washers recently. There is a cat that sleeps on my car and its paw marks are all over the windscreen each morning. Luckily guns are restricted here or it would be dead.
My car needs a WOF (Warrant of Fitness) in November and I get a full service in February. Apparently it was first registered in Nov 2009 and I bought it from the dealer in Feb 2010. Except for a new battery last year, I have not had any major repairs but expect that will not last much longer. Cars need so little servicing now compared to when I first owned a car (was a 21st birthday present) in 1965 (a 1958 Holden all cars since I have bought brand new).
In those days the road side service would not change a tyre for a male but thankfully that has changed. I have had one flat tyre on my present car, I was in the North Island, dressed to go out for dinner and it was raining so called AA. Like most new cars, the spare is not supposed to be used for any great distance and not above 80kph so I had to waste holiday time the next day having the tyre repaired. I have bought 2 complete new sets of tyres in the 9 years.

My father would not have let me out on the road if I couldn't change a tire myself. I even used to put on my own snow tires. He made sure I knew how to check and add oil and wiper fluid and water and/or antifreeze to the radiator.

One thing he did not teach me, or think to teach me, was to check and add water to the battery--you had to do that back in them days. At least when the battery went dead once because it had gone dry, he couldn't blame me for it because he never told me I had to do that!  :laugh:

It was the same for me.  My dad taught me how to do all that, and I remember adding water to the battery of my first car too.

Hiya BetterMost friends.



Oh, the it feels good to be in the weekend!

Work this coming week will be a little crazy.  It's "Santander Week", and upper management is doing things for the employees to show their appreciation. 

One day next week is a donut delivery for breakfast.  Some locations will have a Spa Day where masseuses will come in.  On Monday, our department is having a pizza luncheon.  On Friday I had to call a local place and order 14 pizzas (7 kinds, two of each) and a large salad, enough to serve 49 people.  I didn't order any soda, because these places usually send  2 liter bottles, which are never finished, and then they go flat and have to be thrown away.  So today I went and got 4 cases of varieties of Coke, and two cases of water.  I can expense this through the bank and get my money back.

Of course, this also means that I must get to work early on Monday, and make sure the conference room is set up for the pizza delivery and lunch.
