five times around the earth leads me to a green teapot
So much for my big mouth.
The car's annual inspection took place today and confirms my suspicion that an ostensibly still lovely car can reach a financial break even point. I've spent quite a lot on its recent services not to mention the £1000 brake thingy that they threw in for 'free' as part of the last service.
Today's little encounter with the testing department could have cost about £50, but instead I fear it will be some higher order of magnitude.
I suppose in fairness the car has done around 120,000 miles now (thats about five times around the earth at the equator) so I guess it may need a little extra TLC (tender loving care).
Unfortunately, I don't have time for that so I suppose once it's repaired it will have to go.
I shall be driving the rashbre central green tea-pot now, until I can get a wiggle on and the other one fixed.
