have basket, will travel
Getting about would have been more simple if we lived in the city, with public transport on our doorstep, but as we live in the country, our transport options are more limited. Fortunately we don't live far from the kids' school, but the summer has been so hot, they haven't much appreciated their walks home in the fresh air! And for me, it's meant missing out on things along the way that I've really wanted to attend.
We've been married for over 11 years and been a single car family for all that time. So it was with much excitement that we picked up my new car yesterday - well, yes officially it's all of ours, but it's really mine!! The kids and I packed up the cars with food and drinks and have well and truly given it a run over the past couple of days. We've notched up a couple of hundred kilometres already! Admittedly, this is fairly easy considering we do live in the country, but exciting all the same.
Here's a nod to freedom - independence - and let's hope your version of the word is as trite as mine!
