In the garage again!

Before I start on my tale of woe I"d like to thank Karen and simplesuffolksmallholder for their comments yesterday. Don"t ask me what happened yesterday with my replies! I replied to simplesuffolk and the reply came up about 5 times, so I had to go through deleting them, it looks a real mess I can tell you.
I also forgot to tell you how my day started off , goodness knows how because it was quite significant!
Our minibus was booked into the garage apparently the donut!!  (yes that's what the garage called it! ) that's attached to the prop shaft had worn and it wasn't half making a noise.
Anyway Malc went to take it down to be fixed, a couple of hours work we were assured. He arrived only to be told one of their ramps had broken so they couldn't do the car today and they rebooked it on for the next day (today) I was a bit miffed and wondered why they hadn't rung us before Malc had driven down there. Anyway he took it back this morning and it's fixed. Unfortunately the reason it was wearing is because the universal joint has broken! I know it may sound like I know what I'm on about  but believe me I don't!
So we've got to get one of them and the garage will sort put fixing that. So no positive vibes for anyone for the next 7 - 10 days I'm afraid!

One of my lovely neighbours has taken up cross stitch again and did this as a practice piece and then she gave it to us. I really don't know what she means!
I thought it was lovely and I have framed and hung it.
Beavers starts back up again tonight , Eden has school rehearsals for " Guys and Dolls"  and she also goes to Youth Club later on so Fridays are back to being extremely busy.
I'm now off to supervise cleaning of rabbit hutches.


  1. Oh dear it seems to be the month for car repairs in blogland, my friend has just paid out £900 on a service and parts!!

    Love the little cross stitch, it may be a noisy home but I bet its a happy one :-) x

  2. Gosh, I really shouldn't moan, it was nothing like £900!
    It's happy most of the time!! Lol x

  3. ha! love that cross stitch!
    we're back in the swing of fall schedule as well! it's all good things, but man, does it make for a busy week! :)
