Excellent, you seem to have developed quite a bond with the old Prestige.
Yes I have Chris but the relationship hit breaking point today when I tried to replace the speedo cable
I found exactly my limit of ability and it's not a lot sadly. Finding it in such a way reduced me to tears of frustration and upset and I was all set to see the XM off. Free to anyone who wanted it. I even posted to that effect.
The day started wonderfully. I woke up perky and with an intention of popping on the new speedo cable and changing the transmission fluid. Weather was perfect for it...
This is the first time my inability to do something I could formerly do with ease has really hit home hard and it did with quite devastating consequences. The post I made has been removed by the admins but a copy can still be seem on Club-XM.
I'm happy to say that after a few cups of tea and kindly words of wisdom from some very good friends has saved the day
In retrospect I've learned a valuable lesson today. I can't do what I once could and I really must accept that. I keep on pushing the limits of what I can and can't do and I tend to crash and burn as a result. A bit of a wake-up call really.
Still, the good news is that the XM will be fixed but not by me... In other good news (of a sort) the doctors have pronounced me very fit from a purely medical point of view and I await a consultation from a neurosurgeon for the final and formal diagnosis and to see why my right side muscles are considerably weaker than my left...
So, to anyone who thought they were about to be offered a free XM, sorry but very good and kind folks around here are seeing to it that it remains mine to enjoy
It doesn't stop me feeling very guilty about accepting offers of help. That really is something so new to me it's taking a bit of time for it to make any sense. Traditionally it has always been the other way about...
