Our poor old van has been in our local garage this week after it broke down on the way back from Lampeter, with Denise in it!
Nothing too major (big relief here) but we did need the alternator belt replaced – again!
Our van seems a magnet for wildlife and the local mice seem particularly fond of its engine. Both belts had been chewed by mice, droppings all over the place. And a while back a journey to the West Midlands had to be abandoned at Monmouth with fuel leaking out of a chewed, fuel pipe.
Whilst we greatly enjoy rural living and love the local wildlife – but we do wish some of them would leave our van alone.
