A Bit Of This, A Bit Of That [Nov. 24th, 2009|09:21 am]
Tony Grist
I took various bladed instruments to the hedge between our property and Renee's yesterday. I'd like to cut it right down to waist height, but Renee says, "no". She likes it being the height it is- about 6-7 feet- because she believes it protects her front windows from footballs.

I dreamed there was an invisible ghost in the kitchen- and it was doing the washing up.

This morning, early, we took the car into the dealership to have its clutch sorted out. If we weren't with Motability we'd be looking at a bill for something like £1,000. The girl behind the desk reminded me of my erstwhile-almost-daughter-in-law, same build, same floppy hair, same cheery front. We came home in a skittish little courtesy car that looks and feels as if it came out of a Kinder egg.

I am supposing they gave you a Ford KA as a courtesy car? That is a very egg-shaped vehicle.

It's a Vauxhall Corsa. Compared to our usual drive- a Meriva- it feels very lightweight.

If it's the newer model Corsa, yes, it's also rather toy-like.

I like the Meriva very much!

I believe it's the newer model. It's certainly a new car. It's only done 1,600 miles.

What is "Motability"?

Ah, yes: Kinder eggs!

Motability is a company- backed by government I believe- which rents cars to disabled people. We pay a weekly rate and they give us the car- and service it- and see to necessary repairs.
