Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street.

I think I have the worst luck with cars ever. After umming and ahhring about whether to get a new car, we finally tuck the plunge last weekend. I had a cute S-reg Corsa called Betty, but she was defiantly ready for retirement, after spending so much fixing her it was time to give in and let her have a rest. So we bought a 04-reg Ford Ka - Earnie.

The hubby drove it down from Durham (he picked it up from a garage his dad knew), to find some crazy light came on. Turned out there actually wasn't anything wrong (we discovered this after it had been in the garage for 6 hours..). The mechanic did tell us the suspension needed fixing though so there is another £140 gone..Finally gone to drive Earnie this morning and the battery is flat. How? I hear you ask. Your guess is as good as mine.

Anyway I'm off the Leeds today to meet up with some friends as they travel down to Lincoln to visit my other friend. My circle of friends is currently dotted all over the UK, kinda good for a road trip, but the worst when you want to get everyone together. One of my friends is planning a move to Peterborough in June, so there will be officially less of us in Middlesbrough than the rest of the UK. I'm not sure if I like Leeds, sometimes I love it but sometimes I really despise it. I don't even know why, it just doesn't have than city feel like Manchester or Birmingham has.. I do love Harvey Nicholes though! This is the top I plan to wear for my trip;

I'm thinking of wearing this tucked in with a black skirt, leather jacket and my infamous Internacionale boots. How cute is the print on this?! I picked it up in Matalan half price for £7.50. The only down side is that it doesn't button right to the top, hence the bow tie, but I think that adds to the cuteness. I will try and get a few pics of my trip, but knowing my luck at the minute my camera battery will die..
