Parting is such sweet sorrow!

…..well maybe that’s a slight exaggeration! 


Honda civic

We are parting from our two cars this week. Lady of the house can no longer drive with her eye problems  but the Honda Civic was being held-onto just in case things got better.  However, some months later there appears to be no sign of this improvement happening, and the fact of it sitting at the side of the house was beginning to annoy her, so the decision was reached, and it has gone to a good home! And we hope to see it again, to check it’s not lonely!



Honda CRV

The love of my life, (besides the lady and the family, that is) has been my old Honda CRV with 122, 000 miles on the clock, but still going well. However it was decided that we now needed a smaller vehicle (are we shrinking?) but still liked the height for getting into the car. Consultations with the local garage have brought forth a Nissan Qashqai (We had never heard of it before either!).So having spruced it up for the last time it will be disappearing from our runway this week. The image above is how it will appear to me as it disappears from view.

People say that you should never get emotional over cars, but we have had to admire the mechanical reliability of these two Japanese cars…..British manufacturers….are you reading this!

  1. I can’t believe you hadn’t heard of them! They are very big sellers! We love them but my hubby is still in love with his X Trail.
    NB The Nissan Qashqai may not be a British make but it is British Made.

    Made in Sunderland. ;o)

    • Thanks, daffy for that info about where they are made….and proud you can be! Like your other half I also have a great love of previous cars, the three Volvos and the CRV….took this from my father who loved his Humber Hawk, and my son, who loves his BMW.

      Hope to pick it up tomorrow and connect my new Bluetooth phone…..I am told that i am at last moving very slowly into the 21st century!
