My Knight

(image from standrew518.co.uk)

He came not on a dazzling steed bearing a pennant, but rather through driving snow in a Ford Fiesta, bearing a new fuse!

The windscreen wipers blew their fuse yesterday afternoon as I was driving between the girls' school and the gym, and we were stranded on the side of the road with no means of clearing the snow off the windscreen.  It was too dangerous to go on, and I knew exactly what had happened so I called on the FH.

We got to gym, he got home safely again.

In future, the fuse will have Tippex  on it in the dashboard so I know which one to pull, and I will carry spares!  

The snow fell pretty constantly here yesterday from about lunchtime, but it was fine and powdery so although it did accumulate, there wasn't a lot in total, and the local gritters are doing a magnificent job keeping the roads clear.  We are off to gym again this morning, and the estate road is probably the worst we will have to encounter.  I hope everyone is staying safe and warm, and not having too many dramas.

What a great post. After my motorway drama this week, I am really grateful to ALL knights in shining armour, who are there when needed =, to get us home safely!

Keep warm and safe!

blessings xx
