I will be glad when Monday gets here as the last few days have been bloody hectic and frustrating days


Here it is Sunday morning and I am just getting around to writing a post, both Friday and Saturday were busy days for me, busier than usual that is.

Yesterday was Daemon's second birthday and Kelli and Jono had a party for him at a local park, so yesterday morning from the time I got out of be I was busy till around 3pm when I had a nap. Things were made a little more hectic by only having one car, this I will explain in a minute, we were using Jessica's car to take the presents over to the park and the food and of course us.

The party went longer than Kelli thought it would we didn't get home here till around 2.30pm so the party lasted 3 ½ hours and there was about 10 adults and 9 children present, the little ones had a ball playing on the play equipment and swings in fact they didn't want to leave when we decided it was time to head home.

Of course Kelli was up late Friday night baking cupcakes and a brownie pizza, she iced the cupcakes Saturday morning and I took charge of getting the pies and sausage rolls heated and I also made a potato bake for the day of which ¾ was eaten at the party the rest we had for tea.

Now let's get back to why we had only one car, my car shit itself on Friday afternoon while we were at Lemon Tree Passage picking up the cake. We got there ok no problem at all I parked the car and waited while Kelli ran into get the cake which only took a few minutes. Anyway she gets back into the car I go to start it and it backfires and smoke poured out from under the bonnet and then it would start but not run, by that I mean it would kick over and then just die.

We had to ring the NRMA who came and looked at it and said there was nothing they could do I would have to be towed, so they arranged for a tow truck to come and tow me back to Cardiff, the distance was 54 K's cost us $170. Well I rang Tim when I was in the tow truck and suggested he upgrade our coverage which he did it still cost the same but being upgraded means we get more for our money.

So now my car is parked outside of Gaspower and Tim will speak to them on Monday, we are not happy as everyone knows we only had the car in at Gaspower last Tuesday and they were suppose to have fixed the problem and it comes back and it is worse.

Friday night it was close to 9pm when I got home, thankfully Kelli's dad Rex came and picked up Kelli & Daemon and brought them home he then hung around talking to Tim till I arrived at Gaspower and then he brought Tim over so he could pay the tow truck driver and drive us home. I was very thankfully for this as I had asked Natasha to drive her dad over to Gaspower and bring us home but she said she couldn't do it she was busy.

It is now Sunday afternoon, I didn't get to finish this, this morning before we left to go over to Kathy's house for Summer's birthday lunch. It was a nice lunch there was only me and Jes, Kelli and Daemon, Leo and Michael's parents as well.

  8. "My car shit itself." I'm sorry, but that's hilarious! I'm used to hearing, "My car took a shit." This version is so much better...even though I'm sorry it happened to you. :(
