Goodbye to the bus
No, that wasnt the goodbye. That was last year after getting stuck on the beach, but otherwise my pride and joy, complete with paw prints and bumper stickers for Bags of Swank.
Let me start at the beginnning, at Easter OH had his car written off in a rather nasty accident were he was very lucky to be unharmed. His other car was waiting on repair in the garage proving to be a rather large job, scenario still on going. Then, last weekend my bus (seen above) was vandalised, putting me off the road for a week, and us being a vehicle free household - this in itself caused a lot of difficulties. Move forward to this Saturday, car fixed!! Hurray, I drove it ONCE to go tend to my Mum who has been unwell this weekend. Yesterday the end came, the engine died, the beloved bus is no more.
No, the exercise of walking 4 large dogs on foot is not good for my arthritic knees and back, I usually walk on sand which I can manage fine.
If anyone out there can find a plus side please let me know, as I am really struggling with this just now.
Sorry for the gloomy post, normal service will be resumed in a day or so when I hope to get back to the Folksy Mayhemers and show some goodies.
