...of your bank account!

Just had the MOT results back: 200 to get it roadworthy - this is fine and just about what I budgeted for.

However, the head gasket is leaking and could go at any time Mad

This will mean a 400 pay-out next month and I have to keep the engine well watered and oiled in the meantime. Good job it didn't pack up on the way back from Kelmarsh!

Ah well, as long as I'm careful Astra airways should continue flying to destinations within the UK for the foreseeable future!

Know the feeling.

Cars seem to be a never ending drain on finances but you can't get by without them!
