First thing this morning I had to ring the mechanic, and organise to have my exhaust system replaced. I knew it had a hole in it, but over the weekend it blew out even further and now my car sounds like a Mac truck. Brakes need doing, too, so I've organised for them to be done at the same time. Fortunately the mechanic has a courtesy car, as I can't afford to take any more time off work. I need the business that I don't get if my bum isn't on the seat in my office!
