Well it's been another one of those weeks for me. Firstly Hubby has lost the garage key so we have had to have a locksmith out which has cost £80 today. Secondly my car failed its MOT so today I had to have a new exhaust fitted and it couldn't just be the front bit, oh no, it needed the flexible bit too that bolts to the engine so £120. Tomorrow it has to have two bushes fitted for the steering and suspension, so god knows how much but at least I get the parts at a reasonable cost as I am the buyer for them. Then this morning, I was driving to work and had just got onto the roundabout when a transit van decided he was above the rules of the road and drove straight across the roundabout on the wrong side of the road heading for a head on collision with me! Luckily I wasn't going too fast and stopped quite quickly and froze whilst I watched the transit try to avoid me. He luckily missed by millimetres and stopped half way down the side of my car at an angle facing out. I couldn't even see the driver, just the passenger dressed in camaflague clothing. He then sorted himself out and sped off on the opposite side of the road again. I guess the good news is I'm still here, even though my little legs were quivering.
Lastly on Monday of this week we finally had our bathroom finished. It started last April when the insurance company came in to fix a leak in the roof through the bathroom. To cut a long story short they repaired the wall and then the next time they came and knocked it down again........... and then repaired it again????? They were all over the shot but finally the bathroom got fitted minus the bath panel and the shower which finally got done on Monday. My son has gone to have his first shower in the new bathroom and it's leaking through the ceiling................. Can you just believe my luck, but if you know me, you'll know this is nothing unusual! So although I will be visiting Stamperama to say hi to Teresa I won't have any spending money, so any donations would greatly be received.......lol.
Anyway, I don't know what's in store for me this weekend but it better be good!!!!!!!!
