Update on the transport situtation
Supposedly the mechanic who's been sorting out my car has finished putting it all back together and is testing things out to make sure it's fixed. This means I will have wheels again soon. In the meantime Hubby has found an SUV that he thinks I'll like. If we get it we can give my old car to the kids as a starter car for them to bang about town in. We'll see how it turns out. Having no car has been stressful.
