More car troubles


Ok I got my car back today, driving home the steering felt a little heavy and I thought I will ask Tim about it and see how it went when I went to get Leo, can you see where this is going, yeah when I went to go and get Leo the car wouldn't start..............what the hell.....................I had to drive Jessica's car to get Leo and then come home and she jumped in the car and went back to her place.

So Tim gets home from work and I tell him I know you are stuffed, he was up at 2.30am to go to work and didn't get home till 4.45pm but the car won't start he is not happy, he went out and tried to start it and then decided to ring the NRMA who is here now looking at the car but I am expecting it to have to go back to Gaspower.

At least it didn't break down at Swansea but chose not to start when I went to leave to head there, for those who don't know Swansea is a good 20-25 minute drive from here and I have to make the trip to Swansea 3 or 4 days a week to take Leo to school and to pick him up from school.

I was watching Daemon since yesterday afternoon and has been so good but now his mum is home he has been a cranky little one mostly because he wants ice cream and we said no not till after tea. When I have him I have no problem putting him to bed at night or for down for a nap, in fact the last couple of times he has told me he wanted to go to bed and has slept all night in his own bed no problem. This morning I woke to a little hand touching me and a voice saying “Jo”.

At least at the moment Kelli has Jono's car for a while so if it doesn't start tomorrow we may have to take his car, which is not as good as my car but it will be better then taking the bus and taxi's.

Looks like it is the starter motor is stuffed, someone from the NRMA will be out later tonight to replace

  1. Hopefully, it will get fixed for you. Nothing is a aggravating as a non-working car.

  4. I’m really sorry for the car troubles, Jo-Anne. I know how hard it is to lose your car when you need it the most. It’s been a while now, and I hope it’s already fixed. I hope you were able to find a trusted mechanic for your car needs. How is it now? :)

    1. The car is going great now more or less, some days the windows will not go up or down and the other day the wipers wouldn't work

    2. You still have lots of car troubles to deal with, don't you? It’s been a while now, Jo-Anne. I hope you were able to find a trustworthy mechanic to work on your car. In case the repairs turned more costly, I think it’s time to buy a brand new car. What do you think? :)
