It's finally gone - a day to morn

We did it. We took the old Mondeo to the scrappies.... and left it there. It's gone, For ever. And I really feel quite sad about it too. The scrappy gave me 50 quid for my poor old car. Not much, is it? They'll make good money out of the spare parts too, as most of the car was ok. Even Yorkie was a bit sad about it. He came with me, and as we walked away from the scrap yard he looked over his shoulder and said "good bye little old motor".

We walked back. And it's a horrible wet day too. It seems some how fitting for saying good bye to an "old friend". I've had that car for 2 years and 2 days. The longest I have ever owned a car, and it's been a damn good car to us too.

I didn't cry. But I felt like maybe I should have done. Which is daft, because after all, it's just a car.... But you do get attached to them don't you?

But anyway, what's done is done and we all have to move on. I have a new car now and I'm sure in time I will love it just as much, and hopefully I'll have it for a long time.

I should throw myself into my work now, and try to get over my loss.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
