    after a mostly nice day pottering about Salisbury doing a bit of shopping and taking the odd snap, the garage has just rung to inform me the car (in for a "value service") needs the best part of £1000 spent on it to keep its little wheels and cogs going round.

    do you trust the garage and will you get a second opinion?

    Ouch. Spending money on the necessities blows.

    Luke: yes, no
    Christina: yes, yes

    and to add insult to injury, I've just had to pay the road tax for the next 6 months (couldn't afford a whole year)

    I know this is all a bit 1st World Problem, but it was completely unexpected and I'm royally piffed off
