Log your Memory: Week 25

Hi everyone :)

I’m back on track with the Log your Memory project!  This weeks prompt was all about cars… specifically the cars you’ve owned.  I’ve never been a ‘brand’ girl… and that shows up in my layout too… I’ve owned a Ford, Holden, Mitsubishi (x2) and Toyota (x2) LOL

Here’s my layout for this weeks prompt:Week 25

If you click on the photo you’ll be able to read the journaling so I won’t bore you by re-writing it all here… but looking back on it I’ve had two cars that I’ve really loved.

The first was my Ford Laser Sport.  7706gnn_20

This isn’t the one I owned but it looked just like that… although from memory I also had cool hubcaps!  I really loved that car!!  I remember buying it in Hamilton just after I’d moved to Karapiro and I thought it was the best car ever made.  It was compact, speedy, looked good and I felt a bit like a rally driver when I was in it because it had the coolest drivers wheel I’d ever seen!

I used to put the girls in the back (they were only little)… put in all our gear and we’d be off on another adventure.  I remember one time when I wanted to ‘get away’… we literally had breakfast, packed the car and were off to my Auntie Lynn’s place in Kerikeri… 396km according to the AA distances website.  It really was the perfect car for me at that stage of my life.

The second car I really loved was my RVR:mitsubishi_rvr_a1260446344b3188765_orig

Again, this isn’t the one I owned but mine looked just like it!  I loved that I had central everything… central locking, central windows and it suited me perfectly.  It had a CD player which we really wanted on our long trips!  It had an all important tow bar and the bull bars at the front really made me feel safe.  I also liked the fact that I was up higher off the ground. 

This car had buckets of space!  I used to take the girls away camping and we could fit all of us, our gear, tent, camping equipment etc. and still have loads of space. 

Having said all that I’m pretty happy with my new car… I’ve got a tow bar again which is super important to me and I’ve got lots of space too.  It’s just right for all the things I do. 

So that’s the prompt for this week… pretty happy with how it turned out in the end.

Have a great week and drive safe xxx

  1. Hi there Shell. Found your blog via a forum where you commented on having a Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine. I am trying to source a NZ agent that sells them but having no success. Can you tell me where you bought yours from please? Also how much approximately they are? I have a Cricut Expression but really want to be able to use .svg files but cannot with my cricut. So looks like I will need to save up for a Silhouette cameo which I see has marvelous reviews. I see you are in Rotorua. I am in Tauranga. Thanks for any help in the right direction.
