    Default kids.. you gotta love em but i could kill mine

    well i had to go out to town yesterday so i proceeded to fill the car with the kids and then my fone rung in the house..

    i didnt have time to strap my little darlings in when i ran inside and never gave it a thought as my cars parked in a very safe area and i even left a door open!..

    after a 2 minute conversation, i went back out side to sort the kids out and my loving little son had a bottle of febreeze in his hand happily spraying it out of the window so i shouted for him to put it down( as you do)..

    then, not giving it another thought as he'd put it down, i carried on filling the car boot with stuff to take to my mothers and after id done that, i strapped the two kids down into there seats... all was well at that point until i sat in the drivers seat to find that my little cherub had sprayed febreeze all over the steering wheel, the clocks, front windscreen, dash top, the gid, and finally.... the radio!

    and did i go mad?? I WENT BALLISTIC!...

    first thing i did was wipe everywhere down as best i could whilst muttering how much the kids would cook well on my bbq, and then i turned the ignition on and fired the car up.....

    everything was ok appart from the gid was flickering and the radio went on-off-on-off, so i turned the ignition off.

    then i took the gid and the radio out and stripped them to dry them out as best i could but the radio isnt working so i fear the worst for that lol...

    this morning i went out to the car and the gid is now fine but the radio is in safe mode saying "10 SAFE" and wont come out of that... iv even given it the usual waiting time by driving about for half a hour for it to reset but it wont..

    so it now looks like i need a new radio!....god bless our children lolol...
