You see my friend Laura went to Peru for a holiday and whilst she was gone she was kind enough to add me to the insurance and let me "car-sit".
So for the last month I have had this view...
...rather than having to shiver at the bus stop.
I have LOVED IT! I mean I don't think I could ever afford to run a car long term as I had forgotten how much petrol is; but having the freedom to be able to pop over to someone's house in the evening, and not have to worry about getting the bus in the cold/wet, has been fantastic.
I have used the car to go:
- To Church (a number of different Churches)
- Home to see my family
- Shopping (always better than carrying bags on the bus)
- To the countryside
- All over Lewisham for various errands
- And bless other people with lifts
Today I went to collect Laura from the airport and to return her car - she has been so kind in lending it to me and also getting me this gift!
So massive thanks to Laura - the car has been a blessing.
