The Gallery – New

With a bit of luck within a few days this lovely shiny truck will be all mine!


My new, extremely large truck!

Currently it’s Hubbies truck and Eldest Son and I have been sharing a car, which was all working out perfectly well while he was at high school and going through the rigmarole of getting his Canadian license but since he began college in September, which he drives to every day, the car we share has become more his than mine and I have rarely had access to it.  This is really not working for me, in fact I am beginning to go stir crazy being stuck at home.


The area I live in has many positive qualities but the it’s accessibility to public transport and shops is not one of them.  My nearest shop is a half hour walk and while I’m perfectly happy to jump on my bike and ride there in the spring, summer or autumn it’s not an option in the winter with  -20C temperatures, snow and ice. Getting out for a walk is easy in the warmer months but it is another thing that becomes difficult in the winter.  I have become isolated and being home on my own, day in day out, is not fun at all.


Getting out for a walk here in the summer is great but the winter is another story.

It will be a great relief to be able to get out and about again whenever I want, now all I have to do is decide what to do with my new found freedom… 😀

    Hope you can get out more Lou. I’m at home most of the time as well so I know what it’s like. Trouble is it’s soooo long since I drove I’ve lost my nerve lol. Have fun with your new wheels xxxxx

    Woo hoo! Enjoy 🙂 I don’t know what I’d do without my car – although I wish I didn’t need it so much, I would be so lost without it. As you say, the walk is fine most of the year, but in the winter? Not so much! xx

    Dreadful to feel isolated in the cold months 🙁 yes to getting out again!

    I couldn’t drive it though. Not true, I could drive it, I just couldn’t park it in anything less than a bus bay!

    Oh how lovely! I’ve always wanted one like that but don’t have much call for it where I am! Hope you enjoy getting out and about, it’s awful being stuck without a car isn’t it!

    Looks great! I know what it’s like not being able to travel around, I used to live five miles from the nearest shop and when my car broke down I was completely isolated for a while. Glad you’re going to be able to get out and about again soon 🙂

    You must be going stir crazy at the moment Lou but look at those wheels!!! Awesome car. Fingers crossed it’s heading your way. Hope you’re good 🙂

    How exciting! Happy solo driving and enjoy the freedom.
    You’ve given me a scary look ahead to my possible future too, and we’re only a one car family! Can’t imagine sharing it 3 ways!
