    Default My costly mistake :(

    It's been rather a bad day today, firstly i didn't get home from a friends house till 5.30 this morning then had to be leaving for work at 6.30 (that's right, i had an hours sleep). Now with a mixture of things going on (thinking about someone, having no sleep and a lack of concentration) i decided that whilst on the A6 i should mount the kerb and pavement at approx 60 mph and damage 2 of my snowflakes and tear a big lump out of a brand new tyre that hadn't even been on the car for 24 hours

    Forget the wheels you risked your life driving after one hours sleep.

    You can fix the wheel you may not fix you after the collision with a wall.

    Ayeeee!!! well it was avery expensive 1 hours sleep morning after shock and night out! I am glad you are OK though, but can imagine how angry you will be with yourself for the wheels and tyre.
