brian,mums friend,known him years knows someone who can repair my car,cheaper than garage,brian got the parts so everything going to get it back on road. as gearbox has to come out,engines got to be dropped etc.so having new clutch fitted while its being done. this will cost a fortune,no idea how in hell i ever going to pay brian back. oh welll.
he borrowed a trailer from his mate to take it over to be done,on back of his truck.and brought it over. we promptly half blocked my little close while we loaded it on,him turning the hoist,and making this way,bit over that way gestures,me behind wheel,gripping it for dear life,thinking,if you get it wrong,theres going to be a very loud crash. finally,after much cursing,it was loaded. all secured. and off he went. i went indoors,put my hand in jacket pocket........................and pulled the bloody car keys out.!!!!! i had taken them out of ignition,and put them in pocket by mistake. so,no keys,means cant unload car,means brians got to come back 30 miles,means...........panic.
i quickly rang his mobile,and luckily he pu;lled in on side and answered ermmmm brian, i got the keys. he was just over bridge,down bridge street,very narrow street leading out of village off main road,no way of turning round,so i told him to keep where he was and i would take them to him. now,my legs hurt. i get a lot of pain in them,walking hurts. but did i go like hell along road. lol. muttering to myself got down to turn,legs on fire,in agony,as i did,a bloody great Jewson's builders merchants lorry turned down road,i could see brians truck,with trailer down road,could also see,no way lorry was going to get past. panic. i broke into a sort of ungainly staggering trot,lol brian was talking to driver when i spluttered to a halt near him, gasping for breath,vowing to give the bloody fags up, i handed brian keys,smiled weakly at rather fed up looking lorry driver,and walked back home.all i can say is it took me ages lol. how i made it really dont know. my legs.!!!!!!
oh well.at least nothing else can possibly go wrong. can it????
well. yes. it can. because last night,after having shower,and washing throbbing feet i put a load of washing on. all done,half load into tumble drier turn on colllapse in chair. it switched off,and i took nice dry clothes out. now,i been noticing a bit of a squeak while it is working,thought nothing of it,loaded next lot in,shirt,jeans,socks,turned on and........................................ nothing. wouldnt go round.just whirred. found out if i took jeans out it worked, just hadnt got enough power to turn drum with load in. so,yet another bites the dust.lol luckily i have it insured,and engineer coming out on tuesday. i must have broke a lot of mirrors lol
today,i can hardly move. the new tablets are making me dopey as hell.i keep dozing off,so had lazy day, think i did enough exercise yesterday.lol.
took dressing chiropodist put on mums foot,looking quite good,bit red so i redressed it. very painful for her bless her. that will now hopefully heal,and ease. take care all.
