In the last week we have faced the challenge of All three cars being off the road at the same time..
Car one Allan’s Corsa…….. Needed a new battery fitted and now starts so Allan can actually get to work and back at silly o’clock in the morning, without me having to drive him. The things I do for people…. and take my word for it.. going out at 4am to drive him to work and then again at 9pm to pick him up was not fun….
Car two My land-rover……. the starter motor all of a sudden gave up, well actually not all of a sudden. I went over to Maidstone with a friend.. we got back to the car park and when I went to start it the landy wouldn’t start, I shifted the gear lever, kicked whined , kept turning the key and eventually it started… the next day Allan and I went to Asda’s and when we went to leave it wouldn’t start at all. RAC man to the rescue and it was the starter motor… so order one from ebay and two days later……
New starter motor fitted by Allan and I… (yep I did my bit and have the bruises and oil on clothes to prove it ) thankfully that worked…
Car three (my dads car we borrowed while the landrover and the corsa was off the road..) and I’m driving along going to the butcher in stockbury about 11am after driving Allan to work about 28 miles away so a nice round trip of about 60 miles, took boys to school and then went shopping and of course.. that’s when the exhaust fell off…. oh deary deary me I thought… actually I didn’t I thought for fuck sake………Sooo I called the RAC (we certainly get our money worth out of that membership lol ) and they came out and gave it a good kick , WTF I could have done that instead of waiting two hours for the twat to come….. then it was a trip to kwik fit and another couple of hour wait while they get the right exhaust in as the first one delivered was the wrong one… . then it was a mad rush to go and get the boys from school.
So there we have it.. Mondeo with new exhaust system on and running. Bonus for the old man as we had to pay for it as we were using it……
Landrover with brand new starter motor on..
Corsa with New Battery (heavy-duty ) on … and while we were at it put new shocks and springs on front and back and a new exhaust tail pipe on it trying to de boy racer the car as the erm young lad who had it before us had lowered it right down and put the loudest exhaust on it going.
And with the exception of the exhaust on the mondeo we managed all by ourselves……..
I can deal with cars breaking down but next time Not all at the same time please…….
I have lived surrounding Milton Regis on and off since we first moved to the area when I was about 7 years old.. and in the whole time I had never ever been inside the court-house…….. I have always loved Milton as a village and the look of the historic buildings.. and I admit over the years It has got rather run down but the post office and Hall were always the most majestic buildings there… The post office is no longer a post-office but the building is still there and has been for 300/400 years..
I must find out one day
I have always been fascinated by history especially local history.. I don’t think the majority of people who live near Milton appreciate the history of the village I used to live in Periwinkle close which was named after a stream and watermill…
Anyway back to Milton High street.. There has always been the court-house there and as I said I had never been inside it………. and by the time I thought about going it had shut to the public 😦 as was slowly going into disrepair. Fast-forward and now there is a group of lovely people who decided that the hall was worth saving and formed Friends of Milton Regis Court Hall. and they had an open day this weekend………. two days the hall was open again to the public so we decided to walk there with the boys… took us a whole five mins to get there as we cut across the rec.
I remember being told about the mammoth tusk by someone else years ago and was pleased to see it was still there as that is what appealed to the boys the most I think.
I have to say if I didn’t have so much going on in my life at the moment and volunteering with so many organisations I would be tempted to join the cause… Maybe at a later date I or should I say we will become active however we will take out a family membership next time I speak to one of the friends as she also chairs on the Country Park Committee we are members of….
Anyway the kids loved it… so did we……. and of course I took lots of Pictures….
It should be made of
solid gold never mind silver for that price lol
Found this in the dashboard…… so went back for last year or so and……..

There’s truly nothing like a day at the beach. Sun, balmy ocean breeze, clean seawater, good food, and good company, fresh air for the kids, Life is good. That is until those without good beach etiquette arrive and feel the need to squat right on top of you.
What is it about people who feel the need to sit so close you can feel the heat radiate off their skin? There’s tons of space, we can be the only two families on the beach, but you want to snuggle with me?
Move the fuck over!
We always get to the beach hours before anyone we leave early in the day to avoid the traffic if its a fair distance away, so once we are there we can enjoy the peace and quiet that the beach and sea can offer. I love watching the sun over the water, it glistens so pretty.
You can hear the gulls as they chatter among themselves. Peaceful. Relaxing. We avoid the places where you get the holiday crowds.. we love living ten, fifteen mins drive from the closest beach Leysdown on Sea …be it if we want a beach just to sit on or if we want the hustle and bustle with amusements. No matter where we go, that is where the hoards come, I love living in the South of England as we have every type of beach going from shells, stones, or pure sand and even dunes, all within an hour or two’s drive from us… be it staying in Kent or going to East Sussex to Camber.
Anyway back to the hoards, when they arrive. All one million rude beach goers that want to sit right on top of me. Seriously I know the beaches have been busy but why when there is loads of space do they have to put their towel right down next to our blanket.
They move in with all their unnecessary beach stuff. None of them know how to put up and umbrella so it stays put. None of them understand that sand should stay on the beach and not flying randomly about as they shake out their towels or run by you at 60mph.
I gave up smoking so my son didn’t have to breath in cigarette smoke which of course makes his asthma worse… and here I have some rude person sitting and smoking right in our faces yes thats another thing that pisses me off… And then they bury their dog ends in the sand..
None of them understand that we don’t throw the trash around us we get up and put it in the bins provided and if there are none handy.. here is a novel idea we take it home and dispose of it there..
And finally while we are outside, we really do not have to shout at each other. Quiet indoor voices work well.
Now my favourite times to go to the beach is before and after the school summer holidays but we have been known to go during as well but now all the kids are back at school the weather is usually still great.. So that’s where We intend to go on our next sunny day out…….. To the beach Hopefully the weather will be nice this weekend.
I understand that not everyone is as lucky as we are to have a choice of beaches to go to and that some may only see them on a weeks holiday once a year but please… have thought for those around you…
