Not this time

Sadly the car we had hoped to get has been sold, so we are back to square one.
It has not been a wasted day though as we now have an excellent idea of what we can get,  like and suitable for our requirements for the money we have available to spend.
Depending on cost will determine if we keep the I10 or not, but the chances are we will change the car for something bigger and more comfortable, then next year when my state pension kicks in, might get a second little runaround if we think it’s needed.

The internet is full of cars available in our price range,  but like houses, it would appear that by the time we get there, they’ve been sold.
Never mind. Come April 12th when everywhere reopens, we can go car shopping, see one we like, give it a test drive, and make a decision.

Like everything else, it appears to be a case of being in the right place at the right time.
The Easter break hasn’t helped, neither has the lockdown, but we have been able to look around, and that is part of the battle.

Hopefully we will both have a more restful night as we have nowhere to be tomorrow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I’d chalk it up to, wasn’t meant to be. Who knows, transmission might go in a few months?! The RIGHT one is just waiting for you to find it 🙂

    Who knows? You might have dodged a bullet!

    Yeah, but always read up on how to haggle with those car salesmen!

  4. You know what they say. “The universe will make it happen when it is supposed to.” Best of luck on getting the car that is JUST RIGHT.

    Sorry the car didn’t work out. Houses fly off the market here. Everyone is fleeing densely populated areas for the wide open spaces.

    that is too bad it was sold! but hopefully you’ll find something that suits your needs soon! xoxo

    We have two cars and the second hardly gets used these days, about once in every month. We keep thinking of getting rid of it. It’ll probably be cheaper in the long run to hire taxis if and when needed.

    • We had two cars until 2014 when we bought the boat, and only needed the one. For MOTs and servicing, we were lucky in either being able to wait, or being given a courtesy car by the garage we use here. There is very little here in the way of facilities, so a decent supermarket monthly shop is 20 miles away (our Lidl is always stripped in the holiday season|), our dentist is 17 miles away as is the nearest UTC, but nearest A&E is 35 miles away. It’s OK if we have appointments singly or at the same place at the same time, but sometimes we do miss the convenience of a second vehicle. Taxis are not in our budget, and public transport is a lot to be desired as the last bus back to here is 2.30pm.

    Sorry about the car but we are great believers in if you don’t get it you weren’t ment too! 💜💜
