What's causing the fuses to blow on my Nissan Micra?

Whilst driving home, I noticed the indicators on my 1992 Nissan Micra had stopped working. The lights had stopped too and I was forced to pull over and change the fuses. The car worked fine for a day or so, but today it started doing the same thing. Is this an issue with the relay? If so, where is it located and how can I fix it?

Why do you think a fuse blows? There is no point in replacing a fuse without fixing the overload that caused it to blow in the first place. This is usually a short in the repeater indicators caused by moisture ingress.
