A few days ago something underneath my clapped out old car fell off, so it’s back in the garage where hopefully it will be rejuvenated….for the umpteenth time! It’s an old VW and despite roaring along and shuddering like a tank, it’s usually really reliable. So, unless I want to be housebound for a week, it’s back to looking for a cheap car to hire as we live a little off the beaten track, bus and train wise.
Now Hubs and I tend to keep our cars forever but now that we have Sam and Annie we really do need a bigger car as we have their crates and them sitting in the back when we go out or on holiday, and it’s becoming something of a squeeze. So I’ve been looking around and often find myself eyeing up huge 4×4′s.
But 4×4′s tend to be fuel guzzlers and although there are diesel ones they still aren’t exactly environmentally friendly.
Which leaves me wondering what to get. I’m also a dismal driver so wouldn’t want a car that I’d have to worry about scratching, bumping and bashing about a bit! I see a car as a moving tip and something that gets me from A-B safely, not something that has to be waxed and washed……
I’ve heard good things about the new electric hybrid cars but I don’t know anyone who actually has one.
So good people, any suggestions????? I’d love to know of your experiences with makes and models…..especially large cars with lots of room…….
Most of the pics I’ve taken look just like this.
Yesterday I spent four hours digging the dreaded herb garden, a task that is painstakingly creeping and crawling along. The whole time the dogs were playing out with their boomer ball. It’s absolutely hysterical watching them bickering over it. And finally ….after four hours they slowed down.
This is them tired….
Oh yes…..very very happy…
Can’t say I was though ..I crawled in bent double and still it’s only half dug!!!!
