Boredom sets in :(

My car is in having an mot so can't drive anywhere.
Been sitting in my house for 3 days watching rubbish!!
Want to be back at the seaside.
Car isn't safe enough for when I get it back to drive long distances.
Hoping fil will make it safe at the mot today.
Just getting me a new spare tyre and tightening my handbrake would do it.

Got a bit of a tax rebate gradually coming in.. 2 cheques already,
Waiting on 2 more and just got almost ?30 from the hospital for the MRI experiment too which will go towards a new car.
M wants to get me a ford fiesta or focus.
Thinking we need to move on that pretty sharpish.

So basically just rambling on because I am bored.
These last 3 and a half weeks are going to drag!!!!!!!
Sigh!!
Come on ninja I want life to begin!!!! Xxxx

Sorry your having car issues. That always stinks. But Yay! for looking for a new car! We've been looking but cant do anything yet. Still paying on dh's car that he got.

Hope you get your wheels back soon!

Cars back and passed the mot.
Not sure if the hand brake got tightened.
Hopefully it did otherwise its limited on where I can park when out and about.
Not sure when we will car shop but hopefully soon.
Kind of leaving it to m as he'll pay the main chunk of it. As long as its got 4 doors and is manual I am happy!!

Glad today is over nearly... Off to the seaside tomorrow for the day!! It's supposed to be gorgeous!!!
Xxxxx

we also just took our car for inspection, it's 18 years old and had lots of issues, so we were pretty nervous, but it passed! and the mechanic who we hired to fix it up and take it in for us (b/c you do that here if you want to pass inspection!) fixed a bunch of the issues and gave us a really good price.

I've been worried about long trips for a while too, but now I feel ok about it. except that the a/c is still not great, and 20 min in a hot car starts giving me contractions!!! so I won't be doing any long trips anytime soon anyway!!!

enjoy the seaside!
