October 24, 2005
I managed to drag myself out of bed and get ready for my 10am support class for 9:15, plenty of time to get to uni! Get in the car, turn the key and the car won't start. So i get out my AA card and ring them to be kept on hold for 15 minutes as they had a high number of callers. Did not put me in the best of moods. So i give them all my details and they tell me they will be there in an hour, not very helpful so by this point i had no chance of getting to my 10am support class and probably my 11am as well. That meant making sure my mate Jim went to the lecture for me. But i didn't want to wait an hour so I text the guy that has been mentioned in a previous blog that i couldn't get rid of as, well, he does engineering and has worked a little as a mechanic. So he comes round and actually gets my car to start! but i felt obliged to invite him in for a cup of tea for doing that, i'm far too nice! Anyway, i had to call the AA again to cancel them only to be kept on hold for another 15 minutes (why did so many people break down at the same time as me?!?!) and make my way to uni to do some work. I had a brainwave (yes, i realise that does not happen too often) there was another support class on at 3, which meant missing my 3pm lecture but i thought my mate Guy would be back by then so one of us could go to the support class, one to the lecture. Sadly, Guy was still in Durham, how rude! So i text Jim, and he isn't feeling well and said he might not get to the lecture! NOOOO!!! This meant relying on Howard, something one should never really do but i do believe he made it to the lecture, thankfully. Although, i now have hockey training in the rain so i am not best pleased with the disaster of a day i have had! Grr!!!!
