I'd wondered about my camera. The flash was damaged in the car accident but there was no external damage, so I figured I'd blag it on warranty. It looked like I'd got away with it. The repair shop took it in and said no problem. Well, today I saw the quote for fixing it.
£387.00 inc. VAT
Apparently a bit more than the flash was broken. Something about liquid damage.
I drove home distressed. I had to change from Xfm Scotland to Classic FM. This turned out to be a genius move as they played Waltz of the Flowers from The Nutcracker. I love The Nutcracker. It's the first piece of classical music I remember hearing. It's good for the soul. I got back to the flat feeling better.
So I checked online and found the brand shiny new model for £455 inc. VAT (cheers to Jo for the buying advice).
The new model's on its way. The old model - well, I'll find it a home.
