Dr Who without a Tardis?


The story so far…

(cue keystone cops music…)

Having migrated back to the UK from Belgium on the 14th April with the car, the Family Cassidy were settling into Edinburgh.   The car had been used a few times – to the tip a lot to get rid of rubbish, supermarket a couple of times, drive up to Fife once.  But basically the car was just gathering grime at the back of the house and also getting in the way of our games of cricket out back!  We were renting a flat about 2.5 miles from city centre on a well served bus route and about 1.5 miles from kids’ schools.

So…it was time to say goodbye to the car/voituire.

The Controle Technique (a test that every car which is sold in Belgium must have to guarantee it is safe) had been taken before we left and was only valid for another few days.

The Family Cassidy drove down to Hull to get the ferry back to Belgium and say hello to Francoise who was buying the car, and goodbye to VW…

What would happen?  Tears? Beating of chests? What would we feel like without the car?  Would the Cassidys without their Touran be like Dr Who without his Tardis…??

Only one way to find out…let’s just see what  happened….6 June 2010 – start the clock.
