My car needs its MOT soon and though it seems very reliable to drive from place to place in there was a little bit of work that needed to be done on the bodywork. By a little bit of work I mean there were bloody great big massive holes rusted right through it in a number of places and they were pretty lethal so needed to be dealt with!
This is a picture of one of the holes before we started to work on it. As you can see it needed a little TLC!
There was a little more metal in that hole initially - some kind passer by had generously stuck blobs of chewed gum into the gaps and in trying to pull the gum out there was, um, an incident - and this was the result!
So hubby of wonder got some bit and bobs and we set to. We gaffa taped some wire mesh inside the hole and then got some glass fibre filler - a magical brightly coloured goo that is magnificent to play with!
I filled the hole, I half heartedly sanded the filler once it was dry, then I sprayed it with the pretty paint that was the colour my car was 19 years ago before the sun had its wicked way on the shade!
This is how my car now looks!
We patched up about a gajillion other wee holes (and not so wee) too and now my car looks horribly respectable. So I bought a pink, fluffy steering wheel cover. Like you do.
We also hired a carpet cleaner and cleaned all the carpets in the flat, started prepping the flat for the big move, took Jellybean to football practice, did a full big shop, cleaned the entire flat, did seven thousand loads of laundry, rearranged furniture, taught Jellybean how to sing "Old Macdonald" properly, made videos of the boys and I wrote and submitted 12 freelance articles that were running close to being overdue because of the flu I had a couple of weeks back!
I am TIRED.
