Just a little amendment to say that the garage has just rung to say that the oxygen detector at the front of the exhaust has failed and they have ordered one. I can pick my car up at 3pm.
YIPPEE twice and thrice. Hooray, hooray, hooray. sobs of joy!!!!
Another week gone eh! and we had our first hard frost of the winter last night.
My little old car failed it's MOT on Monday - boohoo! so we have had to take it back to the garage today for some investigating because it failed on emissions. I did notice this morning however, that when I put fuel in on Monday the needle was on half full, but today it's on quarter and I've only done 44miles in that time. It's not leaking fuel so just hope the problem is only minor and not a costly one. Our son-in-law has borrowed 'peg leg's' car to be able to get to his new job over here prior to a family re-location, so if my car fails completely and I have to scrap it - oh please don't let that happen - then we are without a car altogether. It just isn't practical to use the motorhome every day, it's too big. Please send big hugs to 'our cub', my little precious car.
Anyway, to craft, which after all is the meaning of today. Whats on your workdesk Wednesday, run by Julia. I have made a start on the 12 grunge pages for the swap I am in. Actually, I've completed 2 now - YIPPEE - so only another 10 plus backs to go. Here is a little sneak at the second:
I don't think it appropriate to show it all because each person has their own theme for this swap so will see their pages before they receive them and that would spoil the surprise in March.
I have a third in mind but only bits of it so far, so this is what is on my desk right now.
My hands are freezing after that early morning drive, plus, I have the washer and drier in my workroom and the latter is on at the moment meaning the window is open for the drier to vent. Not good for the old circulation so I may not be able to handle those beads for a while.
I did receive some fantastic news this week. My son passed the exam (first stage) to his next promotion. Just when you think you couldn't be more proud eh? However, it was marred somewhat by the news that 'peg leg' has very high blood pressure plus a double hernia!!!!!!!!!!!! One more thing to add to his knee problem. So, in about 16 weeks he will have his knee operation then after that, he has his hernia operation. The doctor reckons that the pills he has been on since June have caused/or added to the blood pressure problem, so now he's only on paracetamol for the pain. Life is never dull at this house.
Ooh! must go, our new awning has just arrived.
