Mirror in the car

 

I really must learn to close doors behind me - that's the second time Barney has rearranged the bedding - so I had to start all over again.

For the past couple of weeks Tom my g.son has been using my little KA.  I am glad he is as I don't like it to just sit in the Garage - when I am not using it myself...

The mirror had fallen off again I think it is because it had been standing and condensation had got behind it.  Tom is going to fix it for me. I don't like driving without being able to see what is behind me,

While out one day a lorry driving toward Tom Threw stones up and one hit the windscreen and made a hole in it - Now I am Fully comprehensive so am covered for windscreens - so called my insurance Company who gave me a telephone number to call...which I did and they arranged to come last Thursday....Tom was going to Birmingham so he parked my car in our driveway.

The men (seemed like boys to me) arrived and  because the hole was too big to repair fitted a new windscreen - and of course replaced the Mirror...   Which was still on the passenger seat of the car.

I had to pay £50 excess ( Think that is what they call it) so all is well again.

Lyn and I had to go to the shops - and driving along - I was in the passenger seat,  I glanced up at the Mirror - and without thinking I said to Lyn "Gosh that's a good way they have fitted my mirror back - not just glued to the windscreen"

Lyn took a quick sideways glance at me ..and said "Mum we are in my car not yours"...bear in mind her's is a four wheel drive you could put my car in her Boot.

Well we both started to Laugh her at me and me at myself, we could not stop, tears ran down our cheeks - even in the shop we were still giggling....

I said to Lyn please don't tell anyone I even made her promise..all she said was don't think I can - as she was still laughing....

Tom came and picked my KA up, and I thought Lyn will at some point tell him - so I went through to the lounge and said "Lyn - tell Tom what a stupid thing I did"...Tom's face went red and Lyn started to laugh again - You are right she had already told him..!!!!!....

I expect she has told half of Norwich already - so you may as well know too...

And Stuart I think perhaps I do need a PA   or   even a Minder...lol

I've done stupid things like that. Once on holiday in Germany (at least, I thought I was holiday!) I woke in the night and went to the loo, I thought, that's odd their loo is like mine. I suddenly realised it was mine, I'd come back home the night before!! So you're not alone!! We're all slightly mad! I don't allow my cats in the bedroom, they both have long hair which coats everything they touch! They both sit in the doorway looking at me when I'm on the computer but don't dare enter!!

That's so funny. I have those trigger mouth moments too. Barney rearranging your bed is funny too but must be exhausting to redo the bed several times a day.

We had a dog like Barny....his name was Spade Edward....don't ask how we came up with that name...LOL...and he would re arrange our bedspread after I had made the bed....if I didn't shut the door..never could break him of it....I would come home and there he would curled up in the center of the pile....even bought him a soft blanket and pillow...didn't matter...liked my bed the best...LOL...and about that "foot in mouth" thingy....LOL...we all have done the same at one time or another LOLOL...Hugs from KY

Hey, nothing wrong with a slip-up now and then. This, of course, coming from a man who has made a career of the Faux Pas.

It's kind of fun to enjoy a laugh at one's own expense, now and then, isn't it?

Not to worry though, Ms Ally, you're still on my Favorites!

It's Fun when you can laugh at yourself!

    I love that look on Barney's face... It's like he's thinking, " You are NOT going to ask me to move, are you?? "  More like a statement of fact, than a question ! lol  
    I can relate to the incident in the car.  A few years back, I got in the wrong car, after picking up some dinner at the local 'take out' restaurant.  The owner actually watched me do it, and got a good laugh out of it.  Talk about embarrassing !  Glad you managed to get a good laugh out of it yourself. I mean, what else can ya do ?? lol    Tina

You're mind was somewhere else I expect! Like in the Valleys with a certain Welsh gentleman singer you have a habit of listening to!! I'm still giggling about it now and I read it yesterday! x

You and your daughter have so much fun together. Wish my two lived closer eventhough they  tell me when I say something wrong. Paula

I can sympathize with all the trouble you had getting the windshield (windscreen) repaired. I've gone through the same thing several times.
That picture of Barney reminds me of my cat Scratch. I can never get her off my bed. The last time I tried to rearrange the bedding she wouldn't move, so I pulled the sheets & covers over her and left the room. Next time I'll have to kick her out and close the door! Perhaps I should send her to you and she can keep Barney company!     Jon
