I now don't own a car...

on Sun Mar 18, 2018 8:03 pm
So on Friday the Focus didn't start. RAC came out yesterday and told me it was the starter motor. They got it running and with a bit if effort it started today but its days were numbered. So stuck an ad on Facebook for £200, was offered £140 and the car is gone. Sold it to a breaker which is fine by me. Slighly sad to see it go after almost 7 years and 40,000 miles.

Yes, that was a properly rubbish day that. I still have the paperwork for the "no win, no fee ambulance chasers claim that the other driver put in. Came to about 21k IIRC, about 12 of which was their fees.

You should have come and got it then. Still I made an extra £40.
Just changed my insurance over now. Can't wait until Thursday...

Teeps! Even though i said you should try and sell it if you wanted to - and not wait for me - you weren't supposed to sell it if you wanted to - and not wait for me!

I mean, come on! Yes it was your decision - but thats not the point! Wink

Alas, it was y daughters Christening and i was v busy all day.

Athough -- i wonder if the vicar has ever had this scenario before

"Can the parents and godparents please now stand and come to the font, thank you"

"You are Maisies mum, hello,.......and...... where.... is Maisies dad?"

Lel "He's in Teesside picking up a £100 Focus"
