Car update

Sorry no card today enjoyed the garden and went to the local hospice fayre.
After being told my car needed work and my son drives it a lot and having nearly lost him few years ago to a accident although not road related decided would speak to garage. Nice lad been looking after my car for years and trust him. Well after conversation he said that mot they dont take wheels off and therefore would say get done asap if i could afford it. So took down to him Saturday morning and he offered to drive me back home but called at brothers for chat and ended up there few hours. Rang and he said call round nearly finished and would make me a drink while I wait. Well in the end he said if he had removed the wheel he would have failed it on the brakes too as was much worse than he thought but he had put some good discs on for me. Back will need doing later in the year when i service my car. Oh well another £160 paid to him so he is £250 richer this weekend but I have peace of mind.
Hospital appointment tomorrow to chat about another operation so hopefully I will get a card done for you Tuesday. Hope you have all had a fab day the sun was soo hot here.
Thanks for popping by.
