Dropped the car off for a health check, because I'm going to be doing a lot of driving in the near future. It's always tricky when you're female and/or have little knowledge of cars. Always worried if they are they going to be honest with me?!? But I shouldn't have worried. The check was done quickly and staff were very helpful. The report came back that the car's in good condition- and they gave me a recommendation for something that will be needed - but not immediately. So no unexpected bill :-) Also - the car needed wheel-trims (I learned these aren't called hubcaps any more!) and the chap on the desk initially said the store next door would fit them for me. But he then arranged for the garage to fit them for me. Small thing, but was much appreciated. Will definitely be back.

Big shout out to the beautiful gent who rescued my cleat from my bike pedal and refitted it to my shoes then sorted out the alignment for me. I put the shoes back on when i made it along the road to the cycle path to sunny Puerta Bella and had no further mishaps all the way back through Edinburgh and along the canal back to Polmont. You sir, are a true hero. Thank you so much. Think i completed at least 90 miles today and the last 10 were almost as easy as the first 10 because of those cleats. Big love to you, Sir from the Giant rider wi aw the gear and nae idea. x
