Iwas stuck in traffic earlier this week sweating it out in my silver Hyundai, when it started shaking. I pulled over thinking it had over-heated.
When I set off, it started doing it again so I went to a garage about a mile from where I needed to be for a meeting. The mechanic said the car was misfiring and if I left it they’d take a look.
I was wearing a dress, killer heels and was loaded with bags. So I did what any girl would do – I sucked it up and started walking down the road.
By the time I got to the meeting, 45 minutes late, sweating, dress crumpled and stuck to all the wrong places, I was limping with about 10 blisters on each foot, had make-up running down my face and looked like an overworked donkey. The meeting didn’t go much better either.
