A Bad week

Im home now for a couple of days as last week something happened that I have dreaded, I broke down in France, well the truck did . The Starter motor burnt out. Although I have breakdown insurance I couldn't get a garage to do a roadside repair, all they wanted to do was recover the truck to a workshop. The cost of this was minimum £1000 euros + parts + labour so the total was at least 2000 euros with my insurance contributing £350. Luckily Saturday morning another owner driver gave me a tow start and I managed to get it home where I replaced the broken starter for £500
