Cars!!! (and curtains)

My lovely car decided to misbehave rather badly this week... Well she has been a bit sad for a few days and finally decided to give up and have a hissy fit on me on Wednesday. From spluttering she just stopped and said "no, I don't want to go any where". Well after a little persuasion she also threw her exhaust pipe out from her underbelly, so determined was she not to leave the house.
Ha ha! I had the last laugh as I called the good old AA out and got us both towed to my garage, where the nice man gave her a bit of TLC (oh and I gave him £150). She now really likes going out again... Tis good to have a working car again.

Very exciting too! My new purchases from Ebay have started arriving - a luvverly pair of long william morris curtains for my new lounge, I know we haven't moved yet, but I HAD to have them, how sad...

poorly car
I'm glad you showed it who's boss- very inconsiderate of it to throw a wobbly - doesn't it know you are moving! Glad you ordered those curtains:0)

Re: poorly car
I second that, and I can confirm that the curtains are lovely jubbly!
