My appointment was 11 am, we eventually saw him around 11:15 am. This was making me even more nervous, prolonging the agony!!!
We had a wander around when Mandy and Dave spotted the car in the rear car park, there she was, bright red and waiting to go home.
Mandy left about 11:35 am as her son had an appointment. Siobhan and I filled in all the paper work, then it was time.....oooeerrr..... I was going to get in and drive off.
The saleman asked if I would like him to drive her out of the carpark, I said yes. It has been tipping with rain all day, not the most perfect weather to try out a car.
I swapped places with the salesman, this was it, my turn. I had precious cargo, Siobhan, so I needed to be careful. I carefully drove out onto the main road. The brake was a little sensitive, to be expected as Halo is an old bird and maybe I am inclined to be heavier on the breaks because of her age.
I got us home, Went in to get my glasses as I was off to the support group meeting, I forgot I needed them.... D'oh!!
Got in the car, where are the glasses, I know I picked them up. I had also forgotten the paper work for the meeting. So it was back into the house again to pick this up. I still couldn't see my glasses so I picked up another pair. I got in and drove to Derriford Hospital, Guess what I found in my coat pocket??? Yes, My glasses..... !!!
I was a little late for the meeting, what a greeting, so many people worried about me and where I was. Those reading my blog had said I was picking up my new car. It was sad as we had lost a warrior. Condoleneces to his family, such a very sad loss.
We also missed Marilyn and Phil who live in Cornwall, Phil has had chemo and wasn't feeling well. I hope we can make up for it at the next meeting.
Sandra, my lovely warrior friend, gave me a bunch of Daffs and 2 bunches of Tulips at the meeting, how lovely was that, thank you so much Sandra x x
I will be bumbling around in my new car, I have to get used to her. My darling Halo will be going soon : ( I will miss her so much. We all have to move on, I hope the new car makes me as happy as Halo has.
