Readers of surprises will know that I have been without my car due to a small accident. I have been driving round in a small car which although lovely does not fit my pushchair in the boot or the dog in with the girls, so trips out have been somewhat limited.
My daughter was heartbroken when my car was taken away. She asked over and over 'where's your car Mummy?' 'Car back soon Mummy?'. Today when it returned and she saw it again she started jumping up and down and pointing making ooh noises. She was very excited to see my car again and said 'Car all better now Mummy'.
I am so pleased to have my car back, OK it might not be a sporty number or anything fancy but it does exactly what I need it to do. I can finally get my pushchair in the car and the dog and take everyone out once again. I cannot wait for tomorrow to go out with the dog and the girls, I'm not sure who is more excited my eldest, the dog or me!
This day I love my car.
