Ahhh NO!

Oops -
The unexpected has hit
Just when I was like "Oooh, I get my house back, and can get back into the rhythms of normal life" -
I get the phone call: "Bokkie, my car has packed up. They can't look at it till Monday."
Monday?
MONDAY!?

What the heck!
What sort of service is that!?

The ramifications of this are obvious: it doesn't take a rocket science, after all
My car is, for this duration, no longer going to be 'my car'
The Man is a very busy person - needing to be IN TOWN daily - needing to get there - in my car.
I will be carless.
Now.
Just when the stuff the I do is getting into its stride

I know I sound like a spoiled brat.
A kugel, dahl.
And maybe I am one but -

WE. ARE. NOT. AMUSED.

You'd be surprised how easily you can get by with just one car. We actually sold my hubby's car this weekend. In preparation for moving overseas. We've tried the last three months to get by on just mine - and even with two kids to drop off in two different places, and a hubby to take to work (and fetch) we've totally made do with just one car - which is why selling it now - was an easy decision. It's also meant that hubby has been able to cycle to work (11km), and he's enjoying a nice 3kg weightloss as a result (the stinker). He only cycles about 2x a week and then once on weekends.

Don't fret - you'll find a way! Just think of it as an opportunity to walk more, or even, get a bike of your own :)

Oh that is super frustrating. I hate being stuck in one place.

And I am free-er in the afternoons, so am sure we can make plans. x

You will survive you will be surprised, look on the bright side if you are here you dont need one cos you can order everything on line but then you can become a bit lazy :(

I'm hoping that your car gets fixed and life can return to blissful peace for you.
