Guild Meeting

We had a great guild meeting last night and some members displayed their lovely quilts during show and tell.
It was really nice to get out with friends for a couple of hours and our host made a yummy dessert for lunch at the end of our meeting.

Today, however, I am fuming. I had to make a visit to the grocery store to stock up the pantry.
Bags in the trunk, key in the ignition and gear in reverse to get out of my parking spot. Pulled out into the exit lane to leave, and was just putting car into drive, and then saw the reverse lights come on in a van which then proceeded to bang into my rear bumper despite me honking my horn loud and clear. There does not appear to be too much damage, but the cars these days are all plastic and nine times out of ten everything has to be replaced as it can't be repaired, and shop costs are expensive. I want it repaired so off to get an estimate. Needless to say I won't be buying much fabric for the next little while.

Doesn't the other driver's insurance have to pay for your damage since they're the ones who hit you? Cars are incredibly expensive to fix these days. The seal on our gas cap needs replacing, but they can't just do it like they did in the old days. If we want a new one we have to pay for them to take the whole gas tank out to get at it. So I'm driving with the service engine light on all the time.

What a bummer, its so annoying when that happens,

I had someone in a mrec which was badly parked scratch all down the side of my car, it cost me £100 to get the scratches repaired, the charmer must have known they had done it but did not bother to leave a note with their details.GGGGRRRRRRR
