Today was the day every owner of an oldish car dreads.the annual MOT. Im lucky,my best friend Pam knows someone who is brilliant at repairs,fully trained mechanic,worked for years in garage in Holt,until he started up his own business.now,hes so busy you need to book well in advance.as he lives 2 minutes from Pams,it's ideal for me,means i get made coffee and somewhere warm to wait. had to get car to him by 8,Tracy kindly got at mine at 6.40 to get mum up and dressed,i gave her breakfast,washed up,and went off,to meet my doom.lol. a neighbor had kindly agreed to look in on mum for me,so no worries there.
Much to my surprise,and i admit the mechanics,it PASSED. just advisory note,both front tyres scrubbed and worn on inside,tracking is out. most probably done 3 weeks ago,when i had to go up hedge to avoid a charming holidaymaker coming towards me. please note,we have a lot of country roads in norfolk,very few have white lines down centre. this does NOT mean you can take whole of bloody road up. So,a grand total of £73 to pay,not bad considering ive had the car 5 months,and only paid £100 for it.P reg.Fiesta,decent condition,but for a filthy dirty interior.which a lot of vaxing,steaming,cleaning,new seat covers, helped to look decent. so,happy mort.and home to mum a lot sooner than i thought.
As i was home early,we went off to fakenham for some shopping,and as i had spent considerably less than anticipated,even fish and chips for tea. a rare treat these days. when did fish and chips become so dear lol. when i was a lad,( ok bloody long while ago.) you used to ask for a fish n 6. sixpennorth of chips,large cod.1/6d 7.5p. really am getting old. any one ever in Fakenham,norfolk try Drifters fish n chips,down Oak street. best ive ever tasted. all in all,not bad day.
As a by the way,theres been no sign of the carers assessment form that was going in the post there and then,1st class post,be with you tomorrow.should have remembered. Tomorrow never comes. Take care all.
