I've sold my car. For the first time in 22years, I don't have my own car. Since we moved here, we use the car less so we decided that we could manage with one (it's kind of two, since John and Linda have a car, but I like having the backup).

I had a Ford Focus - bought it in 2003 and I loved it. It was a real wee workhorse and never let me down. It was a bit dirty (understatement of the year) so I employed a local car valet company to clean it. Wow! It took him all yesterday morning but it looked like new. Although it was dirty (and strawy), it wasn't worn at all. Even better, he knew someone who was looking for a runabout.

So a nice man and his daughter came to see it today and bought it.

With the proceeds, I'm planning to buy a French collar for Smokey and a harrow.

Good for you! When I sold my car I saved a fortune and lost weight too. Have to have one for work now :-( though it's a LR defender that's really useful round the smallholding. Thinking about switching to a horse & cart though...........
