Jump in my car, it's too far to walk on your own

Have you ever wondered what would you do if you broke down on a busy road?

I'm at the total mercy of my vehicle. Fortunately a mid road breakdown has never happened and knowing that I rarely travel too far from home these days I guess I would collect my bag from my lifeless vehicle, shut the door and catch the bus. I'm at the mercy of my car because I just don't know how it works. And don't want to know. I do this, a bit of that and off we go. I purchase cars like I purchase nail polish. Hmmm, I like the colour, I'll take it thanks. I don't even look under the bonnet. There could be nothing there for all I know. So if you ever come across a car in the middle of the road for no apparent reason...the owner just may be on the bus heading off to buy something - in a nice colour.

  1. Lorna, I would rather break down on a busy road than a dark and lonely winding one with lots of trees and bushland lining its edges. As long as you keep yourself as glamourous as you do in that photo of yourself here in this shot, I'm sure on a busy road somewhere broken down you will not be a damsel in distress for too long. BTW loved your comment on mamamia re: the MatthewJohnsGate scandal. If you get time, please comment on my recent mothers day post, I'm certain you will provide a mother's day gem for myself and any lucky readers who might visit.
