The Joy of a Car

Walking past the many parked cars at the school gates I noticed that there is a group of mums and dads who deliberately arrive early to pick up their children.

I too have fallen into this habit.

The reason is this; the car has become a sanctuary where I can listen to music, strap down little ones or even have a snooze.

It is no longer something that takes me about to different places, it is an office, a creche or a hobby room.

It is a magical metal machine that can transform this...

into calm tranquility...

You can of course treat your car in the manner it was designed for such as trips to the shops or visiting sick relatives but do bear in mind that, if you are a keen knitter for example, a car can alleviate the difficulties of wool worrying pets...

 and transform them into well behaved felines...

I should mention of course that cars are parked when renovated into your comfort zone. 

Do not attempt to drive whilst sleeping or knitting - it's not the done thing apparently.

Not a good start!

My littlest has started nursery for a few hours a week signalling the first time that I will have time to myself for years!

Not a Good Start:

In my head I envisioned myself cleaning the house from top to bottom and producing masterpieces of artistic wonder.

In reality, the dog weed on the conservatory floor, I had an argument with a neighbour and finished the morning off by falling in spectacular style on my front drive. Unfortunately I was carrying a bin bag of rubbish which split as I face planted into it.

Perhaps today will be a bit more productive and a little less humiliating.
