The good news is Nigel is back on the road.
The bad news is that we have no real idea why the car wouldn't start.
The first RAC man said it was a failed battery. New battery brought round and not the battery
I guess it is good news that we didn't have to pay for the new battery but we are still left wondering what the heck happened and more worryingly, will it happen again.
Fingers crossed it was one of those glitches that never happens again.
I have my JYC to share again today
It features a decoration from one of my favourite shops. It is located in westbourne Arcade and just has really quirky and unusual things in it - things I love. I don't think I have ever looked in there and not seen something I would love to have., Thankfully my resistance levels are usually quite good.
However I fell in love with these lights the year we decorated the lounge. We have a feature wall that is cream and a beautiful lime green (sounds hideous but looks nice really) and the lights were just perfect. I looked at them, loved them, and walked away. Then they played on my mind. A lot. I went back and looked at them and agonised and walked away. Unlike me! Two days later and just before Christmas I went and looked again and they were reduced. Well it would have been rude to have walked away again. They were clearly meant to be ours!
The ribbons look gold but actually they are lime green.
They are pretty by day, but when they are lit up they look fabulous. So the flap lifts up to show them in their night-time glory.
Not easy to photograph but you get the idea.
However, there is always a story isn't there.
They are gorgeous and very appealing and clearly have feline appeal too as Fiki won't leave them alome. They have just the right claw-ability and boy do they get attcked.
So the flap lifts again and shows me protecting the lights from the monster and his sister.
Today I am thankful for
- beautiful things to enjoy
- a working car
and finally - a video that you absolutely must watch here
It should be mandatory for young girls (and women) to watch this regularly to remind themselves what they see isn't always real and an ideal isn't necessarily achievable.
