How to get out of ferrying everyone around and general crap errands: book your car in at a garage far away for a full day service. I did this yesterday. Worked a treat. The eldest had to catch an actual bus and everything!
I'm planning on having it "serviced" regularly now. I reckon if I park it round the corner and lie it'll save me from loads of unwanted jobs.
Of course I had to call in the services of my Dad to actually drop me off and pick me up from the garage.
Luckily he doesn't moan like I do.
You're never too old to use Dad's Taxi Services 😊
