Well the Fiat 500 goes for an MoT this Thursday. My preparation has involved starting it, running it around the car park, hoovering out the inside and polishing the paintwork. Of course, I would have done more, but I figured that in order to get a decent 'to do' list, I may as well put it in for the test and see what it fails on, so I've been making myself feel better by attending to the cosmetics in the meantime!

The nerves are setting in already (even though I know it won't pass), but that got me thinking just how different people are in their approach to this annual ordeal. So, what do you do? Cross fingers and hope for the best, or spend a month going through the car with a pretend MoT tester's hat on?

ps: I'll let you know exactly what it fails on later this week...

Well, the Fiat 500 passed. No problems to report. Not bad for a car that has done four whole miles since 2005. Sometimes you have to love old cars!

I think it was the hoovering that did it...
