She did it again!

I was missing for most of the day yesterday, ‘running from Billy to Jack’!  This time, the phrase ‘running from Billy to Jack’, is a metaphor for being busy, though I did meet a few nice toyboys on my travels.

The morning had an hour of sorting, cleaning and all things household before I headed out to do a little shopping for somebody else. Then it was time to have the thatch chopped, so I happily returned to the new hairdresser I found in January.

Back for a quick lunch before heading over to Larne for my little beauty’s turn to face the annual MOT.

My Pride & Joy.

This is an old photo from a previous test but she gleamed like a new pin yesterday. By lunchtime the sun was shining, and everyone was in cheerful mood. The examiner was a little Pet and he took my treasure through the hoops in record time. Soon he was smiling and waving the certificate at me.

Now with brighter and longer days I am ready for longer distant driving!

Adventure, here I come!

    gigi – I learned to drive at seventeen. My present car makes a short journey for me to visit family and friends.

    Driving might be safer for you than walking. If i recall, you tripped over a curve and smashed your face.

    GFB – All cars and motorcycles 4 years old and over must undergo an annual MOT test, and the cost is £30.50.

    I was hoping the Atlantic would freeze over just long enough for you to drive over here! We have a bed you can use. But, alas, it failed to freeze for yet another year … although the people on the East Coast may disagree with me on that!

    Fossie – Don’t tempt me…. But if Mayo heard I was landing on the East coast, I might never be heard of again! 😉 I wonder would the car run on Red Top?

    Fossie – The worry is: Would the Red Top fumes have me flying, never mind the car?

    mayo – Almost. That is if you have any Red Top left? 😆

    WWW – My car means total independence for me and certainly shortens the road to Elly.

    Like you, I’d sure hate not to have my independence waiting in the garage for me whenever I need it even if I’m not fond of driving. Thankfully Hubby grew up without a car so he still likes to drive.

    Alice – If I do not drive, there is nobody else to do so for me. I cannot expect Elly & George to travel over a hundred miles each way to come and drive me about.
