Here's my van being carried back from Reading last week. The AA were great though - faced with being stranded between my B&B, customer or going home, but with only one journey to make. Do I collect my belongings from the B&B, take the van to my job knowing it's broken but getting on with the job or just abandon the work and go home - the AA towed me a few miles up the road to my customer's house and delayed the collection until later the next day so I could complete the base build.
Greg kindly took me to the B&B and collected me the next morning.
After being at the mechanics a few days, and seemingly fixed, the van then broke down as I got ready for this week's trip.
