£2178. The final bill for my car. Oh, and five pence. I've had cars that cost me less than that to buy, never mind repair.
I wonder if I could have opted to not have that extra 5p worth of fixing to round it all off nicely.
I should get mine back any minute now. The very nice* people at the garage are dropping it round to my house this morning. I hope that this will be the last time it ever has to have anything like as much fixing done. I've only had the damn thing 2 years, and I bought it because I thought it would be really reliable and low-maintenance.
What a fool, what a crazy, stupid fool I was.
Ooh, just went to answer the door. My car is back. Yay! And they washed** it.
Right. Off to work. Be good.
