You know when you’d just become accustomed to spending £450 on getting your car through it’s MOT and had managed to rationalise it into a normal state of affairs and figured out a way to get around the fact your travelling budget has suddenly gone down by £200 or so when the garage phones you up and says it needs an entire new head lamp including casing because it wasn’t just a bulb, it was the entire thing and that’ll be another £80 plus VAT, thank you very much, your stomach just drops.
Plus the fact that I was already feeling slightly queasy from the off-apple juice I’d had a good slug from earlier, I now actually feel sick with worry. I am never buying another car. Really. I might get a scooter but for the rest of my life, I am going to cycle everywhere.
