Think it must be my lucky day!

So I dropped my car off at the garage and all I could do was keep my fingers crossed and wait for the call! In the meantime, we went to do the food shopping and store some camping equipment in the MIL’s loft. We then popped to the bakers to get some fresh bread and then it was home for a quick lunch before dropping Craig off to his cycling course and waiting for the dreaded phone call.
Lunch done, Craig off cycling, the phone rings-“your car is ready to pick up….there’s a couple of advisories, but it’s all done”. I must of faltered when I said I’d be down to pick it up, because the lady said “you sound surprised!”. I was…… My car is an old X reg Ford Escort, but it’s great for me and the kids and I don’t have to worry about where we go, where we park or what I put in the boot! Unlike Matt’s car which we are barely allowed to breathe and move in! So yes, I was surprised but also pleased to have my little old banger for another year.
Craig’s now back from his course and I’ve been tweeting, blogging and catching up with emails. I have joined @Mumsnetbloggers and @britmums today’s and have also applied to review appliances with @Apponline who have asked me to email them.
Feeling lucky, I went to the shop on the way home and got some scratch cards…….we had 3 each. Of the 12, I was the only one to win and I won with all 3! Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t huge amounts but at least for today at least, I feel lucky! Long may it continue……..
