Still no car !

After a week, I am still without a car, apart from it being a fuel problem the garage are still not sure how to fix it .....after a conversation yesterday, I offered to barter and pay in groats!! (for the younger ones, this was currency from around 1279 to 1561 when we had the Britannia Groat until around 1855)I offered 3 Groats, a freshly baked milk loaf and an old bantem hen that no longer lays eggs......we did not reach a final agreement lol...

Todays card is for my Son in Darwin, I loved this image of Lewis (from Bugaboo) and because the wet season is now under way at approx 33 degrees, they have started to use the pool again. When I visited the first time in their dry season, they looked at me in horror when I suggested using the pool at ONLY 24 degrees hehehehe

Royal blue cardstock
Paper an old pad which has lost it's name
Image is 'Lewis' from Bugaboo
