Having to change my plans... again
Why is that when you start making plans for your future something comes along and spits in  your face.  I made a post about a major decision I made.
https://steemit.com/steemit/@karenb54/i-have-a-goal-to-aim-for-on-steemit-wish-me-luck
This was for me to work towards, something for me to make my life easier and give me something to look forward to but then ***BAM**

Hubby took our car around to the garage that's at the end our our street, he does our MOT's, our exhaust was making some weird noises so thought best get it looked at before a policeman sees us and pulls us over.  **BAM** we need a new exhaust and we should start thinking about buying a new car as our Betty is starting to fail. So now my new plan is to save up for a new car and my plans of a garden out the back with french windows has been put on the back burner until never. 

My decision has to be changed as it means if I don't buy a car I will become completely housebound, no getting out at all, that would definitely finish me off.

My poor car is 13 years old so has done really well considering, she has been a good reliable car but now is the time to let her rest,  she's tired and worn out. I will probably get a £5 for scrap if I'm lucky. 

I don't want to power down but will have to to see how much money I can get together for a car, I can't afford a new one  and I don't mind a used car as long as its in good condition as its just to get me out once or twice a week. The thought of sitting in the house 24/7 scares me as I don't like to think were it may lead me.  

You never know I may win the lottery, Someone has to win so why not me :)

Good luck on getting a new (used) car and winning the lottery. Sometimes our plans are interrupted with new ones.

Life seems to get in the way of all of my plans too for some reason :) I'm sure you guys will find a great car and it'll all work out flawlessly.

Keep positive. You never know what is just around the corner.

I lost my job just as I moved into an expensive flat with my then girlfriend, who didn't work. As luck would have it I got a contract job, and I've been contracting ever since and loving it.

I was planning on training for an ultra marathon this weekend, but we have the worst storm in generations about to hit us. So it looks like I will be out rescuing people instead.

Life will continue to alter your plans, sometimes that's a good thing. :-)

So look at this as an opportunity. Grab it and make it work for you.
