My car needs work done to pass its MOT test. The bad news didn't surprise me. The good news is that there isn't much wrong and it won't cost a small fortune to fix. It is a people carrier Nissan Serena. A funny little vehicle which does nothing for my street cred, and singularly fails to impress the ladies! I like it though, and it is a handy little workbus.
As I drove back from the garage this morning, I was overtaken by a blue Sunbeam Alpine sports car. This set off a train of thought.
These memories of times past, made me feel sad. By the time I reached home I was feeling this sadness in the pit of my stomach. A physical sadness, as well as a mental one. My heart felt broken! Yes I know. I'm a sentimental old fool.
Sometimes I really wish I could have made a better go of my marriage. But you know, if I had, I would never have met Tricia. We would never have been blessed with our extremely handsome son George!
Life is full of different phases. That's just how it is.
Perhaps we should all have a yearly MOT test on our relationships, then we could get things mended before they get broken beyond repair and end up as a heap of junk on the scrapheap of life!
