Tax Return sent to our very patient accountant just in time for the 31st January deadline. Note to self: this year I will get the return done and dusted before the summer. Good news is that the Inland Revenue owes me money.
Car MOT and service was carried out on Tuesday. Cheaper than I thought. Unfortunately a warning light came on this afternoon while I was ferrying some senior church members to Strathblane for communion. Phoned garage. "You'll need to bring it in". Dropped off the ladies. Went to garage. Spoke to car salesman about changing the car. Butters me up by saying I look too young to have a thirteen year old daughter. He's even more impressed when I tell him we have an eighteen year old too. I'm not buying his flannel. Talk about God, or rather, his grannie's faith. Then tried to persuade me to get a Mazda 3 MPS ("It's cheap!"). This car can bring about catastrophic global warming all on its own. What he considers cheap isn't to me. I'm not buying that flannel, either. Finally gets a quote for a small car. Still too much. Will need to think twice about getting a new Mazda. Get my car back. Turns out the technician had forgotten to reset a counter when the service was done on Tuesday. I've not been impressed with Mazda's servicing over the years. Time to change make after six years of running a Mazda?
