Car-less the novelty is wearing thin

January saw my beloved car break down and requiring a new clutch.

February saw my beloved car gain a new clutch and cost me a small fortune in return.

February saw my beloved car undergo tests and diagnostics to determine it’s electrical faults.  Those test proved inconclusive.

February finally saw my beloved car being passed to another owner, who didn’t know whether they could fix it or it would make it’s final journey to scrapyard heaven.

Having no car has enabled us to walk much more than we would normally have done.

Having no car has saved us money on petrol, shopping trips and days out.

Having no car has seen us getting so wet on the school run that even our underwear were wet.

Having no car… the novelty is wearing thin

March please bring me a better travel related month

    We don’t drive yet! So to us the getting wet and walking every way is normality. But Mummy is a good way through driving lessons now so hopefully we’ll soon better understand why being without a car can be a pain 🙂

    Oh I feel your pain. Back in May we went down to one car to save money before baby 3 arrived. I was so pleased that my husband received a performance related bonus in January’s wage because it was enough to buy him a cheap run around to get to work and back. This could not have come at a better time because our middly starts playgroup at school 3 days per week after Easter. This means I have one in school in the morning and one in the afternoon. The thought of 2 extra school runs plus a baby in tow and no car was enough to send me over the edge!
