My old 'new' car!

Four years ago I sold my car so my invalid husband could purchase a new one, he is not poorly enough to qualify for financial assistance as he can walk with the aid of a walking stick. We have now managed to save up for an old car for me, so yesterday I bought one and have transport again. So pleased, one chuffed bunny. Good thing, I was beginning to forget how to drive :0)

Enjoy your new old car. I know how awful it can be without transport of your own.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Yes, Madeleine, I have missed not being able to visit writing friends.

X for you Carole, enjoy your new car, who cares if it's old, if it works and you can now get out and about - brilliant!

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you, Carla, it will be wonderful to now be able to see friends from time to time. Such a wonderful feeling.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Nice that you have wheels again -- we are so dependent on them in this country. Enjoy! -- barbara

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you, Barbara, I have missed visiting friends so much.

Christine Rains said...

That's wonderful! Enjoy your new old car. Maybe one day I can afford one. Being a one car family can be difficult at times!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Happy for you, Carole. Wheelers are a wonderful thing.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Christine, it is difficult, especially when you have an invalid husband who delights in taking you everywhere, but there are occasions when I need to be at a meeting on my own. Very difficult, but fingers crossed that it works.

Carole Anne Carr said...

It has been a very difficult situation, Joylene. He loves to take me everywhere, but there are times when I need to take myself, a hard balancing act.

So glad you have your car. In Oz without a car you'd be sunk.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thanks, Denise, know what you mean, I lived in Africa for many years, so should imagine where you live is very similar.

Happy Frog and I said...

There's nothing like having the independence a car can bring, glad to hear you have that back now.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you to Happy Frog and to you. It is a tricky one to call, claiming some independence when the other person relies on you so much.

Good for you! Have fun with it!

Best wishes on your new ride! Don't forget to thank it for good behavior. I do --still driving a '71 VW Bus.

Medeia Sharif said...

Good news. :) I feel lost when my car's at the shop. It's fantastic to have wheels.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Bit of a problem with me, Medeia, how to be independent and not upset my invalid husband, have to juggle with this.

Erwin Calverley said...

Congratulations on getting a new car, Carole! It is such a hassle if you do not own a car personally. Moving from place to place can take up lots of time, as public transportation can sometimes be slow. Well, except for taking cabs, you would end up walking from the station to reach your destination.

Tyra Shortino said...

I agree with Erwin. Plus, traveling privately with your husband would be fun, don't you think so? :) It's a good time for bonding. What car did you buy, by the way, Carole? I hope it's insured.

What's your new car? Are you having fun with it? Transportation is very important, you know. It’s hard to commute around especially if you have to walk very far just to ride a bus. Drive safely, always!
