Get to the petrol station. Put some fuel in the car, pay, hop back in the car and... ... nothing. The engine wouldn't even turn over. My heart dropped to my stomach. I had a car that didn't work - again!
Then a very nice gentleman came over and offered to help. Bless him! He checked the battery didn't have a lose wire. And then he towed me to the garage up the road. He even stayed while the garage checked the battery and then jump started the car, just in case I needed a drive home. So a huge thank you to my Samaritan today. He won't ever read this blog but this is my way of telling him thank you again.
When I got home and turned off the car engine, I tried starting it again, and it worked. So I repeated the process two more times. And it started each time. What on earth was that all about?! I couldn't start it at the petrol station. Mr Samaritan couldn't start it. The garage couldn't start it. I came home and it was acting okay. Wonder if it will be nice to me in the morning?
Meanwhile I have completely forgotten completely what I was going to blog today. I did spend quite a bit of time handquilting on Emily's quilt. And then I played with some aqua scraps thinking they might work in my design for Mouthy Stitches. I gathered together even the smallest bits (because Judith makes me keep them).

At some point between smiling happily picking up my girls at school and returning home I seem to have lost some brain cells. It is taking all I have to piece together this blog post.
Suppose I am going to have to make dinner too! Not sure if I trust myself around a cooker right now.
