My Car

Lyn has gone off to finish our Christmas shopping - so I am trying to write the rest of my Cards - Having difficulty as right hand being injured and can't grip pen too well and not being ambidextrous it just feels like hard work - still nearly finished......

Loaned my car out last Monday as friends had broken down, it was parked and left at Their Office, as they could not get back to Norwich before Thursday - I had to go collect it - as Thursday is the day I visit my Sister. and I needed my car.

Well these things happen - and Lyn took me to collect it Wednesday night.

Driving home it was very dark and one of the front lights decided to go out...when I looked into my rear view mirror it was not there where it should have been but laying on the floor of the car.

I never realised how many times I used that mirror until it wasn't there...

Arrived home and put my little "KA" into the Garage.

Now I have to get to the Garage have the bulb replaced and get the mirror back into it's rightful place...

It's against the law to drive without a light working - don't know about the rear view mirror I expect that is against the law as well.

So Thursday morning Tom picked me up and took me to my Sisters ....16 Miles...........

And Lyn came and collected me ......

Do you think my little car was putting it's parts on because someone else was driving her.....

Hope you get the car sorted.  Luckily you were not pulled up. Take your time with the cards, your hand and wrist are more important.

Sorry to hear your hfinger is still giving you trouble.  I broke Stuart's rear view mirror when we were first married and I have never heard the end of it. If I show him your entry for today he would remind me yet again what I did. That was in the days when I looked in the mirror.  LOve Joan.

Aww, was she - the car - throwing a wobbly because she missed you?  Sorry you've had all those things go wrong, thankfully they are small things though, easily fixed :o)

Those mice or mouses were right little hoarders, home from home they had there.  Didn't know you'd hurt your hand Ally, I hope that gets better.............if all else fails one great big 'X' will do on the cards.........they'll remember u :) Rache xx

I know how you feel I recently had to be without my truck for a couple of days and I could think of a dozen places I needed to go. Also my rearview mirror fell off. I never realized how many times I look in it when I am driving. Sorry about you hand. Paula

Love the cartoon!  I am so sorry about your auto . . .  when there's a problem, you realize how much you use and depend on it!

I LOVE you name tag . . .  do you know the person who did it?  I would LOVE to have them do mine!

As long as your wing mirrors are okies then you should be alright but would be better to get it fixed asap...It is illegal to drive without some kind of rear view mirror...Does sound like she got the huff with you loaning her out <g>  Caff xxx

Hope your hand is getting better.   It would have been good if the person you loaned the car to had asked you in advance about making you pick up your car.   Perhaps they will show you some consideration given the problems it has caused.   Have a good week,    mark
