Me, myself and I :)
It is all fun and games until a tyre goes flat, then it is all fun and games until the spare goes flat as well...
Dad's flight arrived last night at 2120, so there was no time to do anything except take him home and get him settled in. Then quickly show him around my home and suburb before hitting the hay. I had to work 0700-1500 today, so needed my beauty sleep... Zzzzz
While I was at work dad went shopping for dinner and had a lovely meal prepared for me when I got home, it's been a while since that has happened so I thoroughly enjoyed the luxury.
After dinner, I took dad to the wharf area to walk along the docks and take in the lovely evening. As I got out of the car at the wharf, I saw my front tyre was going flat. Sure enough, I had a puncture. Dad and I went for our little walk and came back to the car to change the tyre before heading home. Dad wouldn’t hear of me changing the tyre and did it all himself, while I stood by taking photos. Well... Somebody forgot to service her spare, and as soon as dad took the jack out from under the car, the spare went flat too. So, then we had to sit around waiting for the road service to turn up and pump up my spare. Needless to say, dad got a good look at the wharf area of Hobart, all be it with dirty tyre changing hands... :)
