Hallo Everyone, well what a day that was, don't want another like that for a while I can tell you. First off, the boiler decided it wasn't going to run, so no hot water or oil fired heating. Got the stove fire going with its wrap around radiator boiler thingy and got some heat circulating the radiators. Baked teenage daughter her cake on the range (heated water up). So that was all sorted to a point.
Went out to see friend on the way to pick up kiddies from school and the 'radiator' on the jeep exploded! limped home (6miles) with poorly car and made it okay.
Got carseats and stuff into other car and it wouldn't start, battery flat!! Next I tried to open bonnet, catch stuck!! Eventually got bonnet open and discovered that the jump leads were in hubbies car with him in Inverness. eeeeeeekkkk!!!!!! Rang garage spoke lots of really nice pleading words and Johnny came round with his portable battery pack and we got car going at last. Was only half an hour late picking kiddies up.
Well it didn't end there, Oh No. Johnny told me not to stop car until I had done all my picking ups and dropping offs and as it was the smaller car I had to do two trips to get all the kiddies back. Luckily cos it was teenager daughters birthday my friend and friends daughter turned up and watched younger kiddies while I went back to get older kiddies. Whilst driving I mentally told the car that although it had almost run out of diesel, everything would be fine, and for the first time that day it was, topped up later in evening, before taking second daughter to Moray Youth Choir. Of course though what was I thinking the day had not yet ended! A little flashing light appeared on the console telling me what??? Got home at 2130 hours and looked in manual, have now got to put in some brake fluid this morning apparently as the little flashing light means it is low.
But first I feel a strong cup of coffee is in order, and hopefully today will be much much better.!?!?
And yes I do have something to share with you other than all the tales of terrible tribulations and at some points even torture(me trying to get bonnet open) top is outside of birthday card and below that the inside and at the bottom a piccy of the birthday cakey. yum!
I am sharing this card with you and :-)
