So brilliant to see J again - she had had to cancel coming for Hogmanay. These dolls look a bit like I felt after the drive from Glasgow to Leicester. Things went smoothly until Scotch Corner, after which could feel a juddering vibration through the steering wheel. Stopped at the next services, tyres etc looked ok and after consulting M decided it was probably the wheel balance that was off, so the rest of the journey was a bit of a slow one. As M says, every time I go off island on a longish trip the car does something that usually costs around £300. Booked it into a garage for the morning. Lovely evening with J - had pretty early night though as was shattered.
