I am a driver, I passed my test when I was 17, and always had a car of my own. I love having the knowledge that I can just pick up my keys and go out if I need to, the freedom it gives me. Especially where we live as we get one bus every half an hour or hour, depending on time and days, and that is if it has not been cancelled.
Also, with my Daughter with her illness not having a car would be a nightmare to get out as she could not make the walk to the bus stop.
The other day my husband wanted to pop out and asked if I wanted to go along, so we get in the car and head to B&Q, yes I know we go to such romantic places. Luckily he was driving, as if the car flashes something or pings up something I go into a mad panic. I learnt my lesson a long time ago to not carry on driving if you are unsure of something, lets just say he got very grumpy with me.
The car pinged and we got this lovely red picture of a car and arrows, luckily B&Q is not a million miles away so we park up and he says he thinks he knows what it is, we drive home he goes out fiddling with things, googles what it could be, changes fuses, and then announces we need a new part.
Me being me, asks if I can still drive it, to be given a look that says it all and a sharp NO.
So that is it, I a carless, I have not needed to go out, we have no appointments this week, and my Daughter is having another really bad week so not going to school, and if it had been working I would not have gone out. But oh no I feel trapped, I just hate not having my car.
The part is being delivered today and my wonderful husband is going to mend it and I will have a working car again.
Am I going out today, No so why do I feel like this.
Am I alone in this or do you feel like your right arm has been cut off and you are helpless when your car is not working.
