RIP Big Green Monster Car 🙁
The man with the final say decided it wasn’t allowed to be repaired; at least, initially he phoned and said he could but that was when he thought it had only done 50,000 miles whereas in fact it had a previous dashboard console that had done 80,000 miles. So that was that and it’s written off. I have loved that car, i shall be very sorry to see it gone. It did look a bit beaten up by the end, but after a shaky start, it has done us very well for 4 years. We’ve had it since just before Josie was born and i’ve been all over the place, 60,000+ miles in it.
Maddy is inconsolable about it, which is rather sad. Poor old girl. I’m mostly upset that we’ll probably buy a grey car next (all the ones we’ve seen seem to be grey!) and i did love being so bright and noticeable. Max has seen something that he’ll look at on Friday; hopefully it will be okay.
Otherwise; i went to work today. Apparently there was lots of music done but i’m not sure what else. When i got back, there was some courtesy/hire car malarky to do and then we had a lovely afternoon with Michelle and Chloe. The kids mainly played out and we got some talking done, trying mostly not to focus on the dreary prospect of becoming a school mummy 🙁
