My CAR!!!!
Not_A_Megalomaniac


It's beautiful.  I love it. 

Having said that - what a nightmare getting hold of it in the first place!  Right trauma!  The bloke who finally sold it to me said he was glad to see the back of it - apparently the easiest job is getting the number plates on it, but they couldn't find anyone to put them on!!! 

It didn't go altogether smoothly from the Wainwright end either.  Could I find my paper counterpart licence?!  Nooooo....  could I find a bank statement???  Nah.  I think I bin them all (and with my finances I'm not surprised!).  So anyway, I'd signed for my car, I had my keys in my hand, then they said they needed either the paper counterpart for my licence or a bank statement with some transactions on it from within the last 90 days and they couldn't give me my car until they got it.

I nearly cried.  Mum bless her had pulled the house to bits looking for anything resembling a bank statement or a driving licence.  We went home and pulled the house to bits a bit more and finally I found a bank statement from my other bank account which is basically live but I never use it, addressed to my old address (remember we only moved two weeks ago!) and within the last 90 days with a credit AND a debit on it... AND THEY ACCEPTED IT!!!!!

I could've kissed the bloke!  Well I couldn't, of course, he was far too young/short/blond.  But he was a great help - he didn't even work for Kia but he did a great job getting me car for me, I was well impressed.  They even gave me a full tank of petrol (which in this country is flippin' brilliant!).

I just love my car, it's wonderful.  CD player, leccy windows, air con... I feel dead posh in it!!

Started making a food diary last night.  Dunno if it'll help, but it's worth a try.  Mum can't believe how much weight I've lost lately.  I just wish I could get into that piggin' dress.  Well, I've got time.

I go to Scotland tomorrow!!!!  Can't wait, it'll be brilliant.  I'll just have to forget everything from the Loch Ness Monster episode or I'll get beaten up.

HOOTS!!  OCH AYE!!!  MA WEE TATTY BOGLE!!!!  "Oh-oh-oh-oh Roamin' in the gloamin', on the bonny banks of Clyde, roamin' in the gloamin' wi' a lassie by ma side......"

McHOOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahem.  Glad I got it outta me system.


Mood - Chuffed, cheery and generally jolly!
Music - Roamin' in the Gloamin' now!

Ma wee tatty bogle!  Us Scots say that ALL the time.  Honest, guv.  No-one'll belt you for taking the mick.... Don't you just love Gray's accent when he gets all Scottish (or is it just me?)
I'm so glad to hear that everything's picking up now.  Shall send you an email, as I've been very bad at that recently xxx

What type of car is it?  Sounds cooool!!
Food diaries are a good idea. I never thought I was eating much, or that I was eating stuff I shouldn't. Until I wrote it all down for a few weeks and looked at what I had written. Eek! It freaked me out! Then, because I had to show the diary to my doctor, I actually started to eat less just so that the diary would look better. hehehehe  The things we do!
