Training in Quarantine – Day 309

Had my MOT done today. Took surprisingly low amount of time — I dropped the car off at 10:30 for the 11:00 appointment and they called me back at 2pm saying it was done.

They had a check-in process where you sign in, and deposit the car keys (with a tag saying which bay you had parked the car) into a small locker and that signals the mechanic you have left your keys. It’s contactless so you are never near another human.

My daily walk as a result, was much later than normal.

Training in Quarantine – Day 308

Had to shop for more milk, so went up to Tesco but they didn’t have the organic milk needed. Went to Sainsbury’s instead and they did.

Booked my MOT, but they said they did not have any “While you wait” slots for that date so it would be booked as a drop-off.

So instead, I booked for this weekend.

The showroom is only a single bus ride (plus a 15-minute walk) so it’s not too bad.

Training in Quarantine – Day 307

Forgot to log this yesterday.

Was another wet and windy day, didn’t really do much of a walk, and just managed to walk to the local Co-op to get some milk in the pouring rain.

Toyota later called me advising my MOT on the Yaris was due next month and I should book in the MOT.

Did that today and surprised that they offer a “While you wait” MOT that you can drop the car off and wait for them to do the MOT and then pick it up afterwards.

Next available slot for that is in two weeks. Still in good time for the 9th June deadline where the MOT expires.
