One of Those Days

Well, the wind eventually eased off during the night - today it is alternating between heavy rain, sleet, snow and hailstones - lovely eh!!! 

On top of all that I picked up the car from the garage yesteday - they couldn't find anything wrong with the clutch but I had to have 2 new tyres put on. 
Well, this morning I went to take Karen to the train station and one of the new tyres was totally flat.  Aaaaargh. 
So I had to TRY and change it, I must have looked as if I was struggling because my neighbour across the road came over and helped me - well actually he did it for me lol. Thank goodness for lovely neighbours.
So now I have to go back to the garage to get it fixed but, not before waiting for a delivery which is supposed to be here before noon - what are the chances of that happening?  Then I have to get to work for 2pm.  

 I tell you it's just as well I've got a good sense of humour - honest I have, he he.

Oh my goodness, what a moany post - I apologise!! So I thought I'd post a couple of colourful pictures - just to brighten my, and anybody else who needs it, day. 

Have a good one everyone lol.

Aw, so sorry about the bad weather and the flat tire. Wonderful that you have a neighbor willing to help out! (I'd say he deserves a plate of Christmas cookies!)

Hi Ellie! I've tried to contact you to get you registered for the Find Your Eye: Starting the Journey class, but the email keeps getting rejected. I must have the wrong address. Can you email me at kat [at]
Nothing ever seems to get delivered on time. I totally understand the frustration.

Well, I certainly hope all your bad luck is behind you. Good neighbors are the best! Have a wonderful weekend!
It's too bad that you were not having a good day. Hopefully things brighten up for you.
