Email to our family:
After driving over to Tom and Thea’s school yesterday for Grandparents’ Day at Thea’s class (they wanted to know all about the olden days:-), then took them home to Lockridge, then back to our place through the tunnel and peak hour traffic, my olden day car was so bad to drive with “blacking out” at various inconvenient times that I decided to finally bite the bullet and buy myself a new car. This is an expensive thing to do at the best of times, but on the same day as I booked Dad and I in for a cruise around Spitsbergen the timing was, well, interesting!
So this morning Dad helped me with the test driving and negotiating about a new car, which will be delivered in 2-3 weeks for less than the price of this one:

I had to chuckle when I remembered that only yesterday Thea checked that I would be able to move my little dancing bee from the dashboard of my old car to my new car if I bought a new one…
