Argghh, having been happy about my tax refund discovery yesterday, the car is playing up again. It had an expensive repair last month and the engine warning light has come on again. The garage it went to is closed for a fortnight so I'm having to take it elsewhere for some diagnostics on Friday. I'm rather beginning to think the car will have to be kondoed. Was planning on changing it in a couple of years for an electric one but was hoping this one would last me til then. It's diesel and I don't do enough miles or drive it hard enough to keep the engine clean. It's an estate which I need for my work, but I'd planned on downsizing for the next one. Drat.

:T I feel really satisfied at the moment, having experimented with various patterns and alterations and am now able to make panties ie knicks from remnants and old t shirts. I got fed up with the quality of sloggi going down the pan, £8 a time at least. Every pair I make saves me £8 and they look far far nicer. Details in recent posts on the sewing thread, including youtube and other links. Its called having your cake and eating it or killing two birds with one stone. Those who wear thongs could probably get 8 pairs out of a t shirt. I get one cry your heart out Bridget Jones
