Disaster averted

Wednesday last week, for some strange reason I decided to have a bit of a clear up, to my horror I could only find one set of keys for my 156. So for the next 4 days I was like a bear with a sore head looking for the damm things. I soured the site for info to get a replacement, I called friends to see if I had left them in there cars/ houses etc, no luck.
I eventually called Mango's, to be honest not my favourite place but hey and was quoted 200+ for a replacement. So Saturday, I decided to have another look in my overcrowded and somewhat untidy garage with the help of a pal. Mid afternoon I suggested a beer, "some in the fridge" (the fridge in the garage with the beer in, you can see my lifestyle clearly now) to be met with "could these be what we are looking for?".
Yep, keys in box of beer in fridge, so we celebrated as best we could. I am feeling much happier that Mango's are not going to relieve me of 200+.
A very happy ending
