Where are my Marbles?

Here's the evidence that I'm finally losing my marbles. Today I had lots of small jobs to do which involved going to four different places so I mentally planned my route and set off. First job went as planned then drove to the Opel garage to get my car alarm fixed. Came to the junction, no right turn so had to go straight on taking me further away from destination number 2 but closer to number three. No worries I thought I'll take number three and do my banking next. Just as I got to Dun Laoghaire I remembered that I had forgotten to bring the bill I needed to pay. So I took a right turn and headed for the tennis club to pay for Mollie's coaching next term. Mission complete. Next I headed back to the Opel garage, when I got there I found that it had turned into a Toyota garage sometime in the last month. The thing about Opels (as we are finding out since we got ours last March) you have to go to an Opel garage to get anything done! A friend had told me there was an Opel dealer in Bray so as I had time I set off for there (assuming I'd find it with all the dealerships on the one road). Small detour to pick up a few bits from Tesco. Out to Bray where I found garages for Ford, Suzuki, Nissan, Polo, Hyundai and possibly some others I can't remember but NO OPEL. As Ben and Mollie finished school today at 12.30pm it was time for me to come home.

Guess what I'm doing tomorrow!

the first time that I saw Dun Loaghaire written down, i pronounced it "DONE LOG AIR"

- much to teh amusement of all who knew better!

So to make up for my ignorance all those years ago, I've found a list of dealers near you!

I made it home, slightly frazzled Asha.

I'll be waiting a long time Mum!

Thanks so much Sally, was very busy today but will look into it tomorrow, you've saved me a job. Hope you have a great Christmas too.

I agree Sam.
