This always happens to us.

So what's worse than getting a flat tyre???

Getting two flat tyres. Yep, this happened to us today. This kind of thing always happens to us.

We woke this morning to the first one, so The Hubbster changed the flat which had picked up a nail from the house site, we think. We drove the kids to school and dropped the tyre off at the shop to be fixed and collected tommorrow.

We then went into town to do some shopping, and The Hubbster dropped me at the mall, and was to call back in 15 minutes. He was late. I was swearing in the heat. Where oh where was he??

Ten minutes later, Miss T and my man arrived on foot. They had walked 10 minutes in the heat of the day, from where they stopped with the second of the flat tyres for the day. We then walked back in the heat to the car, and rang his mum who collected us all.

Then we took the second tyre to another shop, and waited around for an hour for it to be fixed. As I said before, this always happens to us. Our quick trip into town turned into a marathon.

Kind of reminds me of the time I ran out of petrol AND locked my keys in the car at the same time. And that's a bloody true story....

Was it a tense trip home. If hubby is with me and things like that happen it usually is?

Ugh, that kind of thing can make a day just horrible! I hope all the flats stay away from now on!
