Whilst Bertha wallowed in self pity (yes cars have feelings too) we headed to Ambleside in the Lake district. I'm extremely pleased to be able to report that,despite being a little sceptical about my knees being able to support my rotund body on the hills, two fine walks were managed in the area around Grasmere. Although completely knackered on the return home the break was refreshing and just what I needed after the building pressure of work lately.
We returned home yesterday to the news that Bertha was all better and ready to be floated out of dry dock. So first thing this morning I went to pick her up and asses the work carried out. Instead of using a main Audi dealer I'd used a local outfit that go by the unlikely name 'Fat Dubbers' but the service and approach I have to say was exceptional and I'll have no hesitation in recommending Ben and his excellent but small team to anyone with a VW or Audi. I've put a link on the right hand side to Fat Dubbers, only the deserving merit a place there.
So I'll just leave you with a few pictures of our short break...
