yep, after loads of thinking about it, weighing up the pro’s and con’s, I’ve decided to sell my car.
It will be an interesting experience to be car-free, having owned a car since I was 17. But the fact of the matter is that I just don’t drive it.
Its impossible to park in London even on Sundays and the cost of car tax, insurance, MOT and servicing is getting ridiculous when I only really drive the car short distances on weekends.
I used to need the car for work but not any more. And I don’t mind using trains to get to places out of London – I can read and relax rather than getting wound up by all the traffic that seems to be on the roads, no matter what time of day or night.
I guess I’ll need to make a couple of adjustments – shopping online for starters.
But the money I’ll save I can use for cab fares when I need to. Or maybe for updating my kitchen.
