car trouble and late nights

It’s turning out to be an expensive month, first the car, then the washing machine, now the car again. A trip out to The Ram in Firle was scuppered this afternoon when, having got to the Kingston roundabout I realised that there was something most definitely wrong. This was after Tom found the passenger foot well filled with water (a leak from the soft top I think), and so had been bailing us out at 70mph. Limping home, the revs all over the place, the engine stalling or just loosing power I was a bag of nerves by the time we got back. I love my car, I don’t want to sell it, but Lord only knows how much it’s going to cost this time.

Fortunately the rest of the weekend has been spent either out in the glorious sunshine (yay, summer’s back), asleep (most necessary), or staying up all night at FP towers watching Most Haunted Live from the Eastern State Penitentiary (it was only for the Ghost Detector for your mobile, honest). American TV – what can I say? There are lots and lots of terrible adverts, the majority of which are still jingling around my head (especially the Campbell’s soup one! Ghastly!). I don’t remember much else, I was tired, there was wine, and we didn’t leave till 7am. Good fun though!

Car trouble can be such a pain. You'll have to spend lots of bucks to do all the repair and replacements. :( If only this things won't happen.. *sighs* Recently, my car is having some problems. Some of my ford f150 performance parts gone bad and needs a replacement. I was really annoyed since I really need the car at that time. I ended up renting a car. *sighs* Anyways, I hope yours would be fixed soon..

Thanks. I've not had a chance to get onto the garage yet, and a bit of me is delaying on purpose so I don't have to think about how much it's going to cost! ;)

I will get round to it in the next day or so though, and then - fingers crossed!
