Today is not turning out to be a good day!!
Firstly, it seems that the publisher isn't interested in my romantic novel after all. Despite rubbing my orange four-leaf clover like a maniac possessed, they have still given it the thumbs down. Back to the drawing board on that one I think. Life is so full of set backs, I sometimes wonder why I bother to get out of bed in the mornings.
Secondly, the mechanic came to look at my car today. He took it for a drive around the block and confirmed that it was making terrible noises. I bought it new in 2002, so, yes, it is getting on a bit, but I find it so handy for popping to the shops. Anyway, he took it away to check it out at the garage. No doubt I will be hearing from him very soon. However, if it is too costly to repair, I think I will have to call it a day. I hope not, as I can't afford another one. It would be a case of getting to grips with my husband's car, but as that is an automatic, I'm less than keen. Therefore I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
You have got to be having a better day!
Postscript: The mechanic has brought my car back. He has fixed it! So something good has saved an otherwise bad day. Hopefully I can go down to the shops without everyone on the street thinking that an invasion is imminent. Well done that man.
Now if I can just sort out another publisher.....
