WOYWW 787/7: Car Trouble

Welcome to the weekly desk share blog link that is WOYWW.  Hosted by Julia for 15 years who then passed the baton to me.  Thanks for joining in.

I can't believe that the year is already half over and there are less than three weeks to the end of the school year.  My desk shows my first two #dailycollage2024 journals and the start of the third.  I am going with a yellow/gold theme this month.
I picked my car up from the garage Monday evening as another injector failed on the way home from Lichfield last week.  Luckily it wasn't too far from home and I limped it to the garage which is just up the road from my house.  I made sure that they knew what I had been charged by the previous garage that replaced the first injector that went and the price was very similar in the end after an initial higher quote.  I will be looking for a new car over the holidays!  Reports are done but I am still finalising assessments with two year groups.  Only 8 more working days this year (including today).
Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.  If you need to get in touch I have added a message form on the blog.

No Mr Linky Sarah.
Sorry to hear about the car trouble again! Nice to look forward to a new one - though expensive.
Au Revoir to Purple and welcome to the new colours yellow/gold

I hope you can find a good reliable car in the holidays Sarah. It's so frustrating when modern cars fail on us. I'm not joining in today as it's exhibition set up day and we are dashing off to Craven Arms. It's taken hours to get everything ready but we are sorted so fingers it all sells 😃 I love your new collage colour way. x x Jo

Sorry to hear about your car but we’ll done you for negotiating a better deal. Good luck with finding your new car.
Your collages are lovely. At my art class they were looking at the use of collage in John Piper’s work but I’m in France so missed it.

Morning Sarah, I think it must be confuusing for teachers at the moment - it's almost the end of the year but it's feeling like Autumn! What a lovely collection of journals you have there! Have a great week, Lisa-Jane #8

Hi Sarah, sorry to hear about the car problem it's a pain when you're working and need it, hope you find something more reliable. It's not always easy to find a garage you can trust either..

I had van trouble too, picked up a little dog Lola from her home as her owners were going away, only for the van to not start again. Owner drove us back to mine, only for the car to do the same thing as I was on my way back to where I was house sitting twoother dogs! Panic!! Luckily Sis in law was local, and came to my rescue and drove me back to where the van was, as phone had then 'gone off line' and I couldn't check when the rac would arrive! anyway, it was all sorted, phone works, van had a new battery. Luckily the RAC man had one on board! Loving your pages btw!! Happy WOYWW!?(((Lyn)))#12

You go longer than we do here, our last day of school was June 27th! Your collages are lovely, I enjoyed the purple month, but I'm sure the yellow month will be just as nice. My favourite this week is the last one! Enjoy the day! I hope you find a new car that will last you a long time! Have a lovely week, Lindart #14

Car troubles are a pain in the patootie. One of the reasons we got a 'new to us' car almost 2 years ago. something a bit more dependable as Bob looked to retire.
I love the vintage ladies. I have 3 booklets of them and one of men. I really should use them more.
Sorry, I'm coming in late. I meant to post before I left this morning much earlier than I normally do in able to get back home ahead of storms.
Creative Blessings!
