Stupid cars................

I was going to take Mum to community bingo today as we have not been for a few weeks, we got in the car and then it would not start!!!! how ungrateful is that after I spent £1,100 on it over the past few weeks, anyway, I gave it's tyres a good kicking but that did not help so I had to get the garage man out, who could not fix it here and he is coming back to tow it away........... still, better at home than being out and about!! Always a silver lining !!
Todays card is a very quick one which I had forgotten about lol.... It is for for Aunty Sue's son, he works in a jewellers selling watches, so my brain was not taxed too much!! Just as well the car did not break down on me when I delivered this yesterday.

Thanks for your visit, my poor car has just been towed away !! I have been using this same garage for 40 years, so I asked them to do the bill in £.s.p. then it will not be more than £5.00.... let's see hehehehehe

Hi Tilly,

Great card, love the image.

Cars, my husband just realised last night that my car has been used for nearly two weeks, I have been in bed with flu, and then came up with the bright idea I could drive down to the doctors this morning........ I no more felt like driving anyway and walked down for the fresh air and exercise, it would have been a waste of petrol half a mile would not have even warmed her through.

Hope the bill is on the light side and in £sp

Hope the weather is better with you than here dark and just had a mighty rain storm.
