    Oh no wait, I mean £s.... :-(

    But at least I have a functioning car again and thus a much better chance of making it to work sometime in the next two weeks.

    It comes after spending £300 on the service, MOT and new brake discs, plus the £100+ for road tax. But that's ok, at least when we can't pay the mortgage and get kicked out we'll have a functioning car to live in! lol

    Well it was only £45 fitting so sadly a mechanic OH wouldn't have saved us much. Just a stupid new system where parts are made by like one supplier and in minimum because they only fit a certain number of cars etc etc. Stupid manufacturers causing problems for everyone else according to my mechanic! And the car's only 4 years old. I know things will go after warranty but why the expensive stuff?!

    Buy some terry nappies and look on ebay for some wraps that were made by tommie tipie! They dont make the wraps any more so you can only get them on ebay but i got 10 for 10 quid.

    I also got some hand made nappies from thailand (not sure how good they are going to be) and they were a bargin too...15 for 20 quid I think.

    Boooooo about the car, we have spent about 800 on a 600 car in the last 5 months grrrrr!

    Oh my goodness! £300! I feel for you. Cars are a necessary evil it seems. Our one always seems to cost us a fortune, and the problem is if you skimp on them then it costs you more in the long run. :(
