Things are getting back on track

Ok so the past few weeks have been crappy to say the least with everything dying on me. The bonus is that everything that has had to be fixed or replaced has come in less than anticipated. The toaster was on sale and is a 4 slice which is nice when the little kids decide to have toast for breakfast a minute after you give them their cereal. The dentist that I went to (thanks Simone) was a heap cheaper than I had thought woohoo! Then today the mechanic rang to tell me that the car is ready and has been fixed the cost of which is half as much as I had believed it was going to cost. Next will be Allen's bike tire. I"m glad that everything is better now I did have a big cry when the car went :o( I do have the best neighbour who has let us borrow their car while mine is being fixed, ( I have been extra careful driving the local police man's car!)
Im hoping that all our bad luck is now out of the way for a LONG while. Here's hoping that the good luck starts seeping in now

Busy days

Its been a busy few weeks and the gremlins have been at it again.
Allen as some of you would know did some work for Richardsons Harley Davidson in Launceston. 2 weeks before Christmas was the last time he worked for them and they left us with no money for Christmas (nice). At the time Allen was working with them he had to get a new rear tire for the bike 350$ later GRRRRR... ANyway I thought well that will last for a bit. Wrong! It turns out that the tire was defective and when he took it to have it checked yes he was told it was in fact defective BUT because the people who fitted it didnt put down the millage of the bike at the time they wont replace it!!!!AHHHH! Ohh but hey what else could go wrong? Why do I bother to ask? The week went on to reveal that the vacume needs a new motor (189$) he toaster dies and I had to buy a new one! (39$ on sale). ohh and then today as we drive to Burnie the car starts playing up hmm? On the way home we loose a gear and have to do 80K's the whole way home AHHHHH!!!! It better be covered on the extended warranty thats all Im going to say! And to top it off I have to go to the dentist on Tuesday :o(
