Yes it was certainly a shock when the number came up Tinky but nevertheless it was a very nice shock.

Thank god i was using a Satnav on my phone so i could tell them where i was in relation to the next junction, but it still took them 2.5hrs to get to us and then another hour to take us home.

This messed up Christmas as we had been expecting to drive up to my parents on the 24th, and trying to get a mobile tyre fitter out on that day at such short notice was impossible, so had to rely on the parents to drive down 3hrs to collect us and then drive us back after Boxing Day. in the terrible snowy conditions.
I'd bet it was a pothole, one took my front left suspension out, which required the entire front springs being replaced, and £700+ lighter wallet.

To make matters worse I had to wait a week to get it fixed, and the car wasn't safe to drive anywhere but the garage.

I had to borrow my dads car to get to work.

It could have been a pot hole at the side of the road however it was my bad driving as i remember glancing down for a split second to the heater control nob and then i felt the judder of the bumps on the white line as i drove too close to the edge of the road and the curb was only a few inches from that white line so we were very very lucky it didn't snatch the steering wheel out of my hand and send the car flying in anther direction.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Just got a shoulder of lamb out from the freezer to defrost for tomorrow. One of my cut price deli bargains from several months ago. I'll slow roast it for 3 odd hours over carrots and onions with the right herbs. Going to be melt in the mouth gorgeousness. Just the ticket for New Year lunch.

I do pot roast beef as you describe but I'm slow roasting the lamb (150C) as it's a fair sized joint. The veggies and stock that it rests on make the gravy after a whiz with the hand blender and then straining.

We love slow cooking meat as it once its done it just melts in the mouth and IMO is superior to any of your fancy joints of meats which cost far more..

I try.

Today's happy: I'm going to wear my manga wig all day. The OH is killing himself that I have green hair! Getting used to having a fringe that I haven't had for decades is still weird.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I made my niece cry on her birthday, I'll explain.

I gave her an envelope which had a letter. I started with:

"A long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

No.. wait that the Star Wars intro

A long time ago.. well mid January 2001"

I had opened a bank account for her.

She started to lose it and and as she hugged me the floodgates opened and she sobbed into my shoulder.

She never saw it coming.

She now gets why we saying to her apply for your driving licence

My nephew said "Can I punch you for making my sister cry"

He must know he's getting one.
