Frocktober Day 11 – Stranded…….

Dear Diary,

Believe it or not, this kind of stuff happens to me quite a lot!!

We attempted a trip to town to stock up on a few things for the kids and Mum and Dad while we are away and wouldn’t you know it…..we ran out of fuel!!

Before you start ‘tsk, tsking’, I am still getting used to my fuel gauge after having the fuel pump replaced (it started working backwards, so full is empty and empty is full, and then just started to be random – quite a lot like me I guess haha) I was informed that I had a 75 litre tank so I have worked out a system to keep tabs on how much I have used – it turns out my car has a 70 litre tank, DOH!

So you can see that it wasn’t entirely my fault hahahaha

Anyways……I was just able to get signal on my phone and called good ole Mum (another miracle, I often forget to take my phone anywhere), but while we waited, we watched in awe at the monumental amount of wind turbines we drive past most days at Collgar Wind Farm – there are over 100 of them and they are quite a sight – I do take notice of them every time I drive by but we got a good look at them today.

I can’t be bothered going to town now – lets go home and watch a movie!

Mum offered to bring out some milk etc. tomorrow when they come to settle in for the week with the kids – all is good, it’s just a shame that no one got to see this dress – it is my favourite jumper which was coming unraveled and a vintage dress in which I wasn’t fond of the top part of it, so I merged them together to make one fab dress which will be living in my ‘most worn’ part of the wardrobe I think!

Do you often have things like this happen to you? or is it just me?

Love Kirsty xx
