Friday night I dragged my drained pregnant ass out to the Noggin to see Jo the Mama's hubby's band play,and although I could only stay for a few songs (it was approaching the witching hour and I was like a fecking zombie) I enjoyed "The Juice" loads! So my slightly tipsy boyfriend and I got into Alan the Almera and headed over to the dark side, sorry I mean the north side! While on Alfie Byrne road I saw a Garda checkpoint up ahead, confident and smug I drove up when the young Garda beckoned....I knew my tax and insurance were up to date and and I hadn't been drinking, but horror of horrors he beckoned me to pull over.......
"Your NCT is out by five months" FUCK FUCK FUCKITY FUCK
I had really forgotten about it, I remember a few months ago looking at it and thinking, oh that's weird I haven't had a letter from the NCT people, I should do something about that..... And that's where it stopped. So now it was after midnight I was shattered and just wanted to cry, I could also sense the disapproval from my boyfriend, he would never get into trouble with the police! I gave my details, and the lovely young police man gave me a month instead of the usual ten days to present the NCT cert, I had to bring my insurance cert to the station the next day as well.
I was mortified, I have never even received a parking ticket, and I am so so so so so sooooo broke that this is gonna fuck me up for a while, if I hadn't already booked and paid for my flights to Spain to see my brother there would be no way I'd be going! Kids aren't gonna be getting their bunk beds for a while I suppose! I was in horrible form and my poor boyfriend had to put up with me, I think as we drove away I said something like "well you know we definitely won't be having sex tonight!!!!" (I later recanted on this!) I was so upset, I had just had the worst day (I had a run in with an elderly female Hitler in Blackrock earlier that day when she had attempted to run over my daughter).
I should have a sign around my neck at the moment that says "Approach with caution"! Looking forward to Blog get 2 gether on Friday......
