Cars

My car suspension is knackered! It's going to cost me a minnimum of 500 euros to get it fixed, they also have to look at the brakes, I will need 4 new dics soon and also the gear box is going!

In total once all that is done it will be more than the cars worth, but I can't afford a new car. The reality of living here is that we could do with a 4x4 or a sturdy hatchback but thats going to be a big ask. Not that I mind the big asks..

I have chewing gum stains in the back from when a drunk girl spat it out in there, and a number of people have been sick down the side. We have used it a lot to transport drunks to hospital and their hotels. Its a bit crazy because it's a 10 year old Audi A4 which has absolutely no legroom in the back. So you can imagine what it is like dragging a 12 stone puke covered drunk girl into the back with her hysterical friends! Something we did on Saturday night.

I am definetly not car proud, I don't understand car love?

I seem to remember you being most 'upset' when I referred to your 'red' car as a Vauxhall Cavalier!!!!!

Caroline, this is a girl thing they don't really know much about cars, the only thing they tend to remember is the colour. It was slightly offensive to liken my car to a Vauxhall Cavalier and Audi A4 is about as far removed from a vauxhall cavlier as you can get! Incidently I used to have a white cavalier which i got from you and Billy, nice car...

You guys need a good car. It needs to be reliable and roomy. I'm going to be praying for that. I think God likes big asks. I don't think he's a health and wealth kinda God, but he does like to give good gifts.
