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