Have you ever broken down in the car?
I have and it was not only horrible it was embarrassing too!
Cars seem to hate me with a passion – I’m no mechanic, pop then key in, turn the ignition, put petrol in and top up the water and oil occasionally is my limit oh and air in the tyres – past that then it’s alien to me!
The last time I broke down was in July this year picking Emmy up from Pre-School, I had parked in the car park to pick her up, loaded both kids back into the car and drove out of the gates – or at least I tried to, half way out of the gates the car conked out. I turned the key and nothing happened, tried again and again but still nothing.
Car’s were queuing behind me to get out and waiting in front to get in but I was stuck.
I had to get out and apologise and start trying to push the car out of the gates and across the road, a hard job to do along. I was lucky that a lovely builder from across the road heard the commotion and was my knight in shining armour – he pushed the car across the road for me and saved the day.
I never did park in the School car park again.
