Well I did it!
Got all the groceries got in 2 trips out without much bother.Was a bit touch and go driving home ( back of beyond and half way up a mountain ) felt like it would be a good idea to get a wee bit of speed up and use the momentum to get me up the hills and it worked.
We got home safely, that was until my mum got out of the car and fell on the ice going in through the gate! Typical!
Well I will keep a watch on this thread to see if anybody has anymore tips for me , and I hope you all have a merry christmas and a happy new year.
Cheers and Safe driving!
