the car is fixed!!!
allegedly! a new fuel filter and valve, i'm not going to hope too much.. but it's back and running and i'll be able to get to crop on saturday (fingers crossed!)
Thanks Suzanne for the offer of a lift btw.. Dh is going to give it a good run out at the weekend and see what happens.. i'm not allowed to go as i get too stressed:)
had another play with soldering this evening.. i need some smaller bits of glass, but i'm getting better with the iron etc. found it v fiddly putting jump rings on, but it's fixed (for now!)
so hopefully will be able to make a few things for pressies for xmas. just need to get some pin backs and chains now.
friday tomorrow... hurrah!!!!
