There's only the two of us now and we don't motor very far from home these days.
We have been driving a little blue Fiat Panda for the last four years without too much trouble but as with most cars there comes a time when maybe it has to be considered if its worth repairing of changing to anothe car, as it has with this one.
The seats on the Panda were quite low down and both of us were sort of hanging on to the doors to haul ourselves out, lol
Our Son in law is the manager of a car showroom and has sorted us out with this cute little car.
A Vauxhall Agila.
One owner, serviced every year and in excellent condition and the very best part is that the seats are high and all we need to do to get in and out is slide across onto the seat. Whoopeeee.
I now feel as though I'm sitting up in the cab of a lorry, lol
Tom saw the consultant yesterday and now has confirmation that his lung condition it 'Asbestosis'.
This is his reward for working hard for 25 years as a Electrician in the building industry.
He was clambering about in roof spaces and working around boiler rooms where asbestos was freely used and was, as most people then, completely unaware that it was giving him a death sentence.
This insideous disease is slowly working its way into the lungs for years without the person being aware of it and only shows itself when its too late.
The lovely consultant has made us aware that compensation my be able to be sought but how long these things take I don't know.
In the meantime we shall make every day count.
On a good note, today is a beautiful sunny day and so after the dentist a short walk and nice latte is in order I think.
