I just cut myself a little.
Finally Friday and I’m at home yawning in front of the computer. I’m still tired after the thunder night and our weather really doesn’t help. After a few seconds with some sunshine it turned back to grey and rainy, mostly drizzle but still it doesn’t make one especially peppy does it 🙂
My car has driven me slightly insane warning me about lightbulbs being broken here and there in my car. I don’t have any manned petrol station on my way home so I have to drive long detours to get to any place that sells car lightbulbs. I don’t like long detours so I have been putting it off for quite some time but now mornings get darker and darker so I better change before it is too late. I remember the olden cars, lots of space in the engine room and it felt sometimes as if one could crawl in to it and still have place for a sofa and a small tv 🙂 Today there’s no space at all. Some cars are so bad that they have to go to a garage to get the lightbulb changed!!
I would lie if I said I had plenty of space to change the lightbulbs in my SAAB but I did manage to get my hands down and remove the bulb without injuring myself too much and to my very big surprise it was even easier to put it all back again and it worked too 🙂 I always drive to the same petrol station when I need new lightbulbs to my car, it’s almost only women working there and I can be just as stupid when it comes to cars as I actually am 🙂 There are a zillion different bulbs to choose between and some are better than others and some are better than all the others but not for the price they have. So I just walked up to the same lady I always walk up to and said Help and help I got and she didn’t make me feel as if I was the most stupid man on earth 🙂
I still have two tiny lightbulbs to change though, I didn’t manage to pull of the plug to the parking light, I’m missing something with that plug, perhaps I should press and pull? who knows 🙂 I also need to change one bulb above the license plate on the boot cover but for that I need a screw driver so I’ll change that one this weekend. The parkinglight plug however is a mystery that most likely can be solved by a work friend 🙂 There should be some kind of standard on those things so they all looked the same in each and every car 🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and after that I think I’ll have a short nap, better take it on the sofa because even if I do fall asleep easy in it it still is a bit uncomfortable so I won’t sleep for too long 🙂
Have a great day!
