Well, the weekend so far has been great. We travelled to the rather glorious and sunny Oxford, which was spectacular and far hotter than I could ever have expected Oxford to be! The real reason behind the trip was to fix Ben’s car, in the hope that we can keep it going long enough to part exchange it or sell it on.
Anyway, after the nightmare of a week that has just been, the fates started to be nice. The car (good gods) fixed itself. Isn’t that amazing! All the problems were completely gone, and whilst the garage could see possible causes, they thought essentially it was fine! The garage tightened and rearranged some stuff, and then refused to charge us. I don’t think you could ask for any more.
We then watched Transformers 2 – great for the cars, but you will no doubt hear a rant from me re: women as sex objects etc in the next few days. The Audi R8 though? Beautiful as ever! Finally, a trip around the shops completed the day, although I only managed to find one charity shop – perhaps Oxford is just too posh for secondhand!
Despite the lack of shops to thrift from, however, I managed to find a fantastic dress. For this one, I pushed my thrifting limit up to a high £10!! The pictures don’t do it justice, but it is an Armani dress, soft grey fabric with a royal blue band around the back. I have no idea if this is a good thing, but it is very much reminiscent of Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) in Friends – quite early 90’s in a good way!!
