Good evening my lovelies, how are you all doing in this atrocious weather? Its absolutely awful up here & freezing with it!!
Today I was supposed to put the tree up but my days dont always go to plan, we have a black van with seats in the back & a ramp for my daughter & her wheelchair, anyway the windscreen wipers broke down today on it & wouldnt work so we had to get the RAC out to fix that luckily by 3 0'clock they were fixed without it having to be towed to Renault. We then had to rush through to Whitley Bay, not much of the rushing tho cus of the bad weather lol. We brought our eldest Ben a new car about 6 weeks ago, well a 2nd hand VW Bora we paid extra at the garage cus he added on a warranty...anyway as luck as it 2 weeks ago we had to go rescue him as his gearbox went. Now the warranty covered the gearbox so that was not a prob but it also then needed a new clutch & apparently the Bora's have a dual-mass flywheel which to preserve the life of the new gearbox should be replaced at the same time. Unfortunately this darn flywheel is the most expensive part of the car, my son is only an apprentice plumber so his wage is a bit crap at the mo to say the least. Then we find out we have to pay the full bill then the warranty pay us a week later, so today has been a very expensive day costing us over a grand, but at least we get half of it back in a weeks time. The thing is I've got go through all this again when my youngest reaches this age aaarrrrggggghhhh....kids are way too expensive they should come with a warning.....lol.
Anyway I've had a little sort out tonight & found a coloured image I had done months ago when I 1st started practising with Prisma's, so I followed the fab sketch on 'Just Magnolia' & here it is...
