...for this is it.

Talking of strong, together, competent women, I set off in good time this morning to collect my lodger from the airport and put petrol in the car (I am driving our spare car at the moment, as the Jeep's still in the garage having its driveshaft joint replaced).

And I would have made it, too, if it hadn't been for that pesky personal stupidity! In other words, I put 20 quid's worth of unleaded petrol in a diesel tank. Oh bollocks.

Cut to an hour later and a visit from the AA, a 4-mile tow, the draining of the tank, and a further 65-worth of your Earth sterling for labour and extra fuel. The little local garage apparently gets one idiot a week, usually people driving unfamiliar vehicles.

Meanwhile, my lodger had to take the bus. At least I didn't compound my stupidity by starting the engine: the car is fine.

I've somewhat made up for it this afternoon by planting 40 miniature irises and digging the vegetable patch, so at least I've accomplished something.
