I picked my son up from pre school then decided to take him shopping with me to trago mills, which is about 40 minutes from our house, so we are quite happily going along when i realise that i need to get fuel,
so we take a slight detour to the petrol station only for me to realise that i don't have my wallet with me and we need to return home,
So off we drive back home to get some money so we can go shopping............. only we don't get that far... as we are driving along the dual carriage way i hear a thump and then a scrape from under the car, I knew instantly what it was , the plastic underside of the car under the engine had come loose and was scraping on the ground... luckily we this had happened right next to an emergency pull in so i stop to check it out.
Nope nothing i can do about it i need help, so i get out my phone to call for help to find i have no calling credit and no battery, at this point stuck on a very fast road with a 3 year old i started to panic and start hoping someone nice will stop and help me as i think this a police car does an emergency stop from the fast lane and comes to see if i am ok.
I promptly turn into a crying girl because i am so glad to see someone and he lets me use his mobile phone and lets my 3 year old play with the siren and look at the computer while we wait for the break down truck.
He was really lovely and although he will most probably never read this blog i would like to say a huge THANK YOU to him for giving up his lunch ( which he was on his way home to get) and helping me.
He was a train enthusiast and had alot to talk to my 3 year old about although he didn't get much response and he very kindly :) checked my car was taxed and insured while he was there lol (good job i sorted all that out last week!!)
So i will try and get some crafting done later and post some new creations for you soon. but i've been a bit busy :)
