    Why does it all happen at once?

    Every single year for as long as I can remember, things have always gone wrong the last week before Christmas for me:

    1) The washing machine has just gone fubar and there's a shit load to do.
    2) Huge pile of ridiculously high bills have come in and need paid before the end of the month
    3) I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet!

    Anyone else having a bit of a crap time right now?

    if you have covered transport then thats fine you can move it

    It can not be driven due to not having tax, mot, insurance or an upto date V5

    tell me about....been having a few gear selection issues with the subaru.

    so took it to the garage and after speaking to the mechanic he managed to convince me that it was the clutch that was at fault. so i booked it in and paid £500 for the privelage of having a new clutch fitted and still the same problem is present.

    not happy as i wasn't convinced it was the clutch and after seeing the old clutch it still had a small amount of life left. Ok was pretty low but still i reckon it would have held out a year or so based on the very few miles i do a year.

    so now need to ring the garage tomorrow to see what else can be done
