I don’t often post about the other man in my life. He’s the strong, silent type but always on hand to take me off on an adventure and he never complains about my singing. This morning was all about him.
I have to admit I was a bag of nerves as I watched him being put through his paces. He was scrutinised and subjected to all kinds of prodding and poking. He was pushed to his limits as he was shaken about on a machine.
My stomach was churning as I worried about the outcome and if this might be the end of the road for my dear friend. We’ve been together for 4 years and he’s part and parcel of my life.
At the end I was handed the yellow piece of paper. Yes Gilbert the Getz passed the NCT!! Relief all round. Gilbert is 12 years old and although his body isn’t great and he wouldn’t win anything in the looks department, he’s very reliable – a bit like meself! If I could have back-flipped out of the test centre I would have done! To be honest childbirth was less stressful! I’m hoping to get a lot more mileage out of my buddy. 😀
