Well! Yesterday was interesting, we actually had a really good day on the whole. Spent the morning here, playing, doing some informal sort of learning with the boys, playing with the blackboard and blocks and chatting. Had dinner, then went out to a play centre which is about an hour away.

Thing is, the brakes on the jeep have been making a little bit of noise and the night before, I’d pulled up on the drive and my braking foot felt like it had gone through the floor, the pressure had gone. I pumped and it came back. I then went in the house and promptly forgot what had happened. I mean completely forgot! I only remembered after we’d got in the car the next day and set off to the play centre. I then stopped, text Chris to tell him what’d happened to see if he had any advice…. then me being me, carried on regardless. On the way, there was a loud clunky noise at one point, which sort of felt like something falling off, but a lorry was going past at the same time so I just told myself that maybe something had just been on the road and been hit by the lorry and therefore wasn’t off our car. So again, I carried on, I did probably know it may have actually been off our car because I was very careful with the old braking.

We got to the play centre and there was a message from Chris saying we shouldn’t really be driving it and to take care and be light on the braking… so we had a great time, came back out and went home. I was very careful, very very careful and noticed that the brake light was coming on every time I turned the steering wheel left… hmmm.

Turns out, the brake pad fell out on the way to Sligo…so we aren’t driving it now (until it’s repaired that is). We’re ordering the parts tonight..

Yes, I ignored the brakes….Something wasn’t right but I carried on regardless, on my own little merry way. We can all definitely be that way inclined in every aspect of life I think. Something to ponder on!
