BACK ON TRACK

20130820-062530.jpgIf you thought I had fallen off the edge of the world, you are not that wrong. It’s been about a year since I have visited this site – it wasn’t that I didn’t want to,or didn’t try.  I basically developed Bloggers Block . Now it wasn’t your old usual kind of motoring journo  block, when you look at a Tata or a Chev spark and you just feel that uninspired  kind of  block. Mine had a bit more high voltage drama.

Some of you probably know this… So if it’s boring switch your ignition off…but for those of you who don’t – I had a rather awful (and expensive) car accident in September 2013 . Because it was an Italian super car it attracted quite a lot of attention in the Sunday papers and on Twitter. But it was after Gareth Cliff slagged me off to the nation on his breakfast show that I kind of crawled into a ball and died. The hype did inspire a whole lot of traffic to the site but at the time I was too shaken to care.

Plus it wasn’t cool kind of attention : I pretty much felt like I had done the worst thing any person on the planet could do …. Smash up a beautiful shiny mega million buck  metal goddess. And of course the women driver jokes that followed me for a long time didn’t help. My site soon became a bit like a circus of people whose curiosity was pretty well drenched up in cruelty. Social media does that. It gives even the most limp minded  individuals courage to be cunts. So I stayed away. For far too long. I have always said : don’t let the bustards get you down. I should have taken my own advice. But recently I got a little braver and like all good self respecting girl petrol heads, I went and got myself a tattoo.

   IT SAYS :

WHAT WE CALL THE BEGINNING IS OFTEN THE END 

    THE END IS WHERE WE START FROM

( inspired by TS ELIOT – who is not a petrol head. )

So I guess this means Girl  Torque is  back on track.

And don’t forget it’s Joy Ride time tonight on Kaya FM

PS. Thanks MdF for sorting out the site and inspiring my Horse Power back.
