I came home from work yesterday to find a new car in the driveway... well, not brand new, but new for me. Yeah! We need to get insurance and the registration sorted out and then it will be ready to take me on new adventures. 

In the evening I went out with a friend in the old car. We were driving along, chatting away, just as happy as could be, and all of a sudden steam started shooting out of the front of the car and the temperature gauge shot up to the hottest temperature. I managed to pull the car over to the side of the road. I think it must have known that it's replacement had arrived. My friend and I decided to just abandon it. My husband went over later and picked it up. 

That old car has taken me on lots of adventures and I think that I've spent a good part of my life in it taxiing everyone around..... kind of sad in a way to be putting the poor old thing to rest.... sniff, sniff... 


  1. What an amazing coincidence of timing. Hope you enjoy the new car

  2. First CONGRATS on the new set of wheels like boys like to call them... o etbaydy bekhny inshallah (use in bliss) as Libyans say :)
    And i am like you to when it comes to disposing old belonging, its like sorta grown on me i find it hard to get rid of them..
    happy for you :)

  3. Congratulations and I wish you safety
    Your student Ismail

  4. Congrats. Do any of the kids have an eye on the old car? You could keep it in the family, recycle it. All they'll need is a phone in case of emergency. Then you could see it once in a while for old times sake. :)
