This morning, I decided to go and see my Mum. I checked my levels in the car, thought that since it was an hour since I'd used it, the oil would've settled enough. How bloody wrong was I!!! So I've not even half way up the motorway, I've got all the dogs in the car. I had to get into the 3rd lane to over take. I lost all power! So I tried to stay calm - there's a lot of traffic, only I put my indicator on. This lorry in the first lane just wasn't letting me in. I then put my hazards on as I couldn't accelerate. He then slacked off and let me pass, possibly too close - but at the time I was just trying to get me and the dogs to the bottom of a slip road (annoyingly they were the exit side of a services!) The new smart motorways have no hard shoulders so I thought I'd be a bit safer at the end of a slip road (the very end) than in the first lane of the motor way! I knew I wasn't in a spot I was safe so I rang the emergency services to report where I was. They closed the first lane and as I was coming off the phone from the RAC the Highways Agency turned up. Asked me if the car could move and could I limp it to the SOS area a mile down the road. They checked it over and said it wasn't a belt snap or anything and they'd follow me down, if I couldn't make it they'd tow me down. Managed to get it to the SOS point. They re-opened the lane and the RAC were with me only minutes later. He checked it over. Then I realised - my oil tank was ticking. So he topped it up and then the car was running nicely again. He then followed me back 2 junctions and a few extra miles to my house. Had a look under and said it looked like I had an oil leak. So now I need to get it serviced. As he was sorting paperwork. I opened the boot so the dogs could get air. He saw how many I had, asked me how I walked them all. I told him walking belt. Then he told me he's started doing canicross after the telly episode a few weeks ago - he was surprised when I said I did it, and scooter too. So I'll hopefully be seeing more of him on the canicross trails - not on the roadside! All in all it took about 20 minutes from me breaking down and phoning everyone for me to be recovered. So well done HA and RAC.
