So it’s official. Out of my hands. But not extinguished. I get a hundred nicker and the garage owner, an enthusiast bordering on obsessive, gets a wreck to restore lovingly over, no doubt, many months, and should I win the lottery (say fifteen grand) between now and its completion I could buy it back!
It’s much better this way. I did know the van had to go, but it would have been extremely difficult actively to make the move. Now it’s a fait accompli.
We save money, support public transport, are kinder to the environment and do a lot of healthful walking. Can’t be bad!
