Car passed its MOT -- phew -- although the rocker cover (?) was leaking oil into around the spark plugs, which sounds like a Bad Thing to me. It's one possibility for it stalling from time to time... although I was Googling earlier and apparently that's a fairly common complaint on Vauxhalls, and might just point to the air system needing a clean. So I at least have a car for this weekend and going home at Xmas. Next hurdle: renewing the insurance in Feb.

Ran out to the garage to pick it up. Took about the same time-- maybe a bit faster, even-- than driving back. This is why I'm glad I don't drive to work any more...
