My car was grounded yesterday.
Took it in for its MOT and should have feared the worst when the lady off reception approached me in the waiting room as if she was about impart news of a bereavement.
Some coil to do with the suspension was broken, no I wasn't allowed to drive away cos it was too dangerous but that will be another £200 thank you very much.
Couldn't get hold of the boss so I just went home and when I finally spoke to him, had to book the day off as an unplanned holiday.
Ok, so I did spend some time sitting in garden but it was...a waste, I couldn't go anywhere, it wasn't a proper day off to do as I pleased.
And it totally knackers up my planned finances when I'd seemed to be making some headway with my credit cards this year.
AM kindly gave me a life into work this morning and also took me to the garage to pick the car up at lunchtime.
The car just looks like it's been given a very, very expensive valet.
Work is really stressful right now and taking the day off has just worsened the situation.
And Boom has been too busy on his jollies to text me, although I hope it's just because he's turned his phone off as it's the one he uses for work.*
Double bugger - not happy at all!
* Edit - got an email from him and his phone doesn't have international roaming! Happier now but yowch, my credit card!
