1. Charlie... [Mar. 22nd, 2004|02:11 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |workingworking]

One of my best friends recently mentioned me in her journal, saying that I don't update my journal enough.

Well, this will be the first of three posts that I will make today.

  1. Charlie
  2. Domestication...
  3. The last 10 days...


Our beloved car, Charlie, is in the shop at the moment, for: 40K mile service; her first MOT; Air Conditioning service; replacement front pads and discs.

This is her first MOT, as I said, and I'm not too worried about it. She's structurally sound, and everything else that she could be likely to fail on is being addressed before the MOT takes place.

The courtesy car they loaned me is quite interesting. It's a four-door, instead of a two-door, so I banged my head whilst getting in. The remote control stalk for the radio is totally different to mine, so as I tried to turn up the volume, I got Radio 2!! *chuckle* The multi-function display is totally different, and actually tells you how many miles you have left in the tank, based on your driving manner. Analysis: I cane my car too much!! :o)

The colour of the courtesy car is Moonstone Blue... which basically means metallic silver with the minutest hint of light blue, if you look really carefully through blue-tinted glasses. Horrid. *shudder*

Anyway, I'm waiting for news on Charlie. They reckon she'll be finished today... I'm not convinced.

We shall see.

More later! :o)

My mum's car was serviced and MOTed at the weekend. It appears to be the season for it, or something.
