"EBAY" SHOPPING/LISTING.but I HAVE MY DRIVING MOJO BACK!!! YES!!!!??
















HI ladies....this is just a silly little blog...BUT i just had to let you know ..that I was a BRAVE lady today..!!
I HAVE MY DRIVING MOJO BACK!!

I actually DROVE...to the OTHER side of town!!

OKAY...just to set the scenario for you...


I live on one side of the bridge in Melbourne...& DROVE my boys to school...over that bridge...for some 12 YEARS...sometimes 8 x times per day...minimum was 4 x times per day..

NOW both boys are ADULTS... with own cars..living in different states etc..

I HAVE literally become AN OLD woman...very scared to drive anywhere...I have LOST my confidence...I dont know what has happened really..??

I have a LOVELY NEW car...but I just drive it to get groceries../local shopping..i hate to DRIVE out of my comfort zone!! which has become...literally JUST around the block!!!

OKAY...took a deep deep breath after tennis today...ANDREA just do it...DRIVE !!

SOOO I DID...& hey...i am a pretty good driver...went over to COllingwood..found my outlets I was looking for...PARKED beautifully...

HEY I HAVE MY DRIVING MOJO BACK!!


like a NEW WOMAN!

this must sound SOOO silly to a lot of you ladies..(except GAIL!!???..no offence)..

BUT at nearly 52 yo...something kind of went squuuewiff!! & I lost confidence re my driving.. BUT i think the OLD girl may be back in business!!

anyway...bought some NICE goodies listing on ebay to sell..
the photos show some of the lovely shoes/bags I purchased...

off again tomorrow morning to get some more stuff!!


NO STOPPING ME NOW.....!!!!!!

Funny I got like that too...It came from country/rural living and now anywhere even alittle busy or requiring reverse parking causes me white knuckles!!!

Love ,those shoes.

Well done Andrea! Looks like it was well worth it with all the goodies you found. I dont have a lot of choice re. driving up here as being on top of a mountain you have to drive if you want anything. Maybe you might even get up here to Olinda one day!!
