One of 'those' days!

Yesterday, as the title suggests, was not a good day
they say things happen in three's
well at least we got them done and dusted in one day

thing number one...

My car
I was taking lovely G to college early yesterday morning
7.35 am to be precise
and scraped a brick pillar on the edge of our drive
this pillar has been there ever since we moved here
18 months ago, how did I do it?  I really don't know
but I did!
I told my Pete, made it sound a teeny bit worse than it was
when he came to inspect my stupidity 
his words were " oh, it's not as bad as I thought"
he he!

Thing number 2...

My sewing machine
I had settled down at the sewing machine
with a nice cup of coffee and my ipod merrily playing 
thinking how nice it was that the house was peaceful
when...clunk, snag, clunk, clunk
I adjusted some knobs, read the manual
did some de- fuzzing with my little mini brush
re-read the manual
but it was no use
my sewing machine was bust!
some rude words may have been muttered
(sorry mum x)

Spent a LONG time looking on line for a new one
(I will be getting my beloved mended, but thought a spare would be sensible)
I spoke to a nice man called Russel
he promised me that my new machine would be with me the next day

Thing number 3...

Sweet B's car
around tea time she drove to her boyfriend's house
not long after she left, the phone rang
" my oil light has come on, so I have parked up"
didn't sound too bad, we thought
so off we went, my Pete, lovely G and me to the rescue 
there was no oil and no water...BAD!
we managed to get poor car home (and sweet B)

Watched masterchef with a BIG glass of wine and a large amount of chocolate!
glad to get into bed

You will be pleased to hear that today has been better

poor car has gone to the garage.
and Russel was true to his word
My lovely new machine has arrived and with a freebie too

50 reels of lovely thread

and I found this
It is the prettiest little narcissi
I have never seen one like this before
the trumpet is very pale yellow and the petals bright bright yellow has been much better

more soon
