BH Challenge#36 - DCDCC Challenge-35

Afternoon folks. Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. We had to take our car in for service + MOT and then walk into town to do some shopping while we waited for it and then walk back to the garage afterwards to collect it. I was shattered at the end of the time. The bad news was it didn't pass the MOT so OH has had to take it back for them to work on it today and have it reMOT'd. It is going to cost a bit so my money for Ally Pally on Saturday is shrinking. Lol!!!!
