They say it never rains but it pours and this last month I couldn't agree more. And I am not just talking about our visit from storm Imogen or the rest of the blustery wet weather we have been on the receiving end of down in Dorset.
First our boiler went, so we called had to get that sorted, then husbands car broke down on his way home from a week away, we paid to get the fixed and a week later his car died in quite spectacular fashion, billowing smoke and leaking oil, luckily our lovely garage is not far from his work so he was able to get it there before it finally spluttered it's last burst of steam. He was loaned the loan car of our friend at the garage and we ended up buying it from him as we have no choice with school and work but to have two cars, then I had to tax the new car. The following week I was sandwiched between a truck carrying a crane and a high bank on the way home from school, the crane foot got stuck in our wheel arch as he passed us and 30 minutes and some nerve crunching later we were on our way home. You would think that should be about enough for one month but just to make it really end with a bang I was parked up at school on the home run and some one caught the back end of our car. I think I just laughed much to the confusion of those other parents who were not aware of how our month had been going.
I also had a birthday this month, it was a little overshadowed with the other events and was pretty much of a nothingness if I am honest but I was made a cake.
I have sent off my packet for the Heart Swap and am looking forward to receiving mine and to a better month. Well lets be honest it can't really get any worse.
