Joy and her car!

Look! Isn't she lovely!
I have named her Cherry Red ~ because she is!

She isn't too old and she hasn't done too many kilometers (unlike me!) and she just squeezed into what I could afford.
My darling mechanic gave me advice and checked her over, and I am going to bake him a cake! (A kugelhopf I think).

How can I express the relief and delight I feel?

Since my health has been bad, a car has been what has stopped me from being housebound. A car has given me my dignity. There are many things I cannot do ~ but with a car I can look after myself. I can manage shopping, appointments and being a mum!

Freedom and dignity! What a precious combination!

Thankyou so much for the kind wishes and support people!

PS When I have made Peter, my mechanic, the cake.... I can DRIVE over to give it to him! Whoopee!


  1. I am so happy for you! I can hear you joy in your new car and the freedom it gives you. Hope all continues to go well! I know your mechanic will love the cake. Sandra

  2. So glad for you!
    I am sure you are already feeling better just thinking about the outings you are planning...

  3. Lovely car, adorable color... the color of your freedom!

    So many kilometers of happiness on the way!
