Cars and Auto

Music fanatic

Does anyone else hate driving while sitting in silence? In fact, I’m not sure if I hate sitting in silence more or if it is talkback radio that absolutely grinds my gears. The day has finally come for my car’s CD player to stop working and I’m absolutely spewing. There’s nothing I love more than …

Broken Down Car

Okay, I feel like such a bad person. Ever since that blog post I wrote complaining about the price of running a car, bad things have been happening to people’s cars that I care about. My car is fine seeing as I have literally just gotten a car service from a mechanic in the local  …

Awesome Wheel Repair

I’m so sick of my dad being obsessed with cars. They’re just all he talks about. He would choose to never see me again over never driving his precious cars again. I know it sounds like an exaggeration but it’s genuinely the truth. He looks after his cars so well, better than he’s ever looked …

The Perfect Mechanic

I’ve been in a long distance relationship with a man I met online for the last two years. He’s from Perth and I’m from Melbourne, and he has told me for the last year that he’s eager to move to Melbourne to be with me forever. I want to be with him forever too, so …

Summer is the best time of year. I love the beach. I love the good vibes. I love the fact that so many people are on holidays. Summer is just all around fantastic. It’s made even better by that fact that my best friend has a holiday house in Cambridge, Tasmania and invites our whole …

Fast Car Service

I don’t know if you’ve ever had a really bad sunburn like I have, but I can easily say based on personal experience that sunburns are genuinely one of the most painful things in the world. I say that because right now, I’m experiencing the worst sunburn I’ve ever had. I went to bed last …

Necessary Brake Repair

Working from home is fantastic. I love it. I very rarely even actually work from home either. I’m either in the park with my children playing and my laptop out, or in the car making work calls and driving to visit my parents. It’s given me so much more flexibility and it had never come …

Lunch Break Service

I am so hungry. I only ate four hours ago, so it doesn’t make sense to why I’m absolutely starving, but I am and it’s making it hard to concentrate on what my mechanic is saying. I’ve just arrived at the car mechanic in Hawthorn to pick up my car on my lunch break. He’s …

Ultimate Mechanic Additions

People always talk about flying cars when mentioning unfulfilled promises of the ‘future’. Well, I’m still waiting for cyborgs.  To be fair, this one is coming…really, really slowly. Some people have mechanical arms or legs with limited functions, and there are ones that scrape in my technicality, like artificial organs or pacemakers. But until you …
