Tense times today in the Pink Fairy Household as the Main Family car had to go for its annual MOT safety check.
Fully convinced it was going to fail, and cost us lots of money that we don't have, I dropped it off at the Garage. "Sit down, grab a drink" the mechanic said, so I made a Hot Chocolate to try and beat off the freezing wet Weather we have had today. As I sat down with my drink I selected a couple of glossy Magazines from the rack and began reading and sipping, trying to block out the forthcoming bad news.
A pleasurable 2 Magazines later a friendly face popped round the door to inform me the car had passed and they were just finishing up with it, "passed" I said "are you sure?" "well I can fail it if you want me to but there's no need!" was his reply!! There were a couple of advisory issues that can be easily be fixed at a later date but for now our car is legal and safe.
Even more great news is that I only had to pay £14 for the test which normally cost £54.85 Thanks to Groupon. If you haven't used Groupon already I urge you to do so, as its a fab website that offers daily discounts on all kinds of items local to you.
