Don't feel too much of an idiot Babs-here cars are required mot every second year......
So guess who took theirs in ,arranged transport to and from work to be told by lovely guy at garage-bring it back next year when it's due!!

Have always felt slightly embarrased about it but don't take the car for any work now, leave that to OH, who also thought it was highly hilarious and told everyone at work, I mean everyone and he was in the RAF at the time.
Can laugh now........................

Babs--'the times they are a'changing'-really depends on the colour of your skin ,and your bank balance--don't be too hasty !

We were there in September on holiday and must say we saw a big change in the cost of things so will listen to advice, but it's a while before we decide and we've only talked about it, but I think I understand what you mean. It used to be so different but it's a long time ago.
