I’m facing a rather daunting few weeks, or maybe months. My beloved Gunther has his MOT this Friday and I am certain he won’t be passing so I will be car-less till its fixed. Gunther is rather pedantic at the best of times. He only unlocks the doors he wants to and the heater is a bit hit and misses. It works throughout the summer but when you really need it, it doesn’t work no matter how much fiddling or door slamming I do.
Now if money was no object I would be looking for a new car. What would I get for though? I’m not too sure on anything that’s big so although my Dad is die hard Mercedes fan and has been trying to convince me you can get good deals on second hand mercs and keeps showing me used Mercedes for sale. I’m remaining unconvinced. I’m more of a mini type person. It would have to be in some bright colour but I could see myself nipping around the town in a mini.
That’s all rather immaterial as I don’t have the funds for a new car so will have to face the fact I will be car-less. For how long depends on how much it’s all going to cost. I have promised Gunther an extra special clean if he remains cheap, oh and to actually clean him more regularly.
Being car-less will be quiet good though in some ways. Apart from all the green brownie points I will rack up, it will also test the waters to see if I can actually function without a car. True I don’t have to walk to work but there is food to be got and I have Asda, Lidls and Aldi all in walking distance just as long as I don’t buy more than my backpack can carry. So I will rack up some walking miles too.
