#TheOrdinaryMoments – Driveway Dreams

Parking on our driveway has never been all these easy, don’t get me wrong there’s plenty of room for two cars but it’s quite a tight fit and with other cars parked here, there and everywhere, we’re often left with very little room to maneuver and I’m always worried that one of us (most likely myself) could catch the wall and damage one of the cars.

Four years or so ago I was rushing to collect E from a taster day at what was to be her new primary school, in my haste I managed to misjudge where the wall in accordance to my car was and as a result, I tin-canned the Zafira. I was so upset and embarrassed – the car was such a mess but thankfully we were able to have the damage repaired, though not before half of the neighbourhood had seen the results of my mistake.

Paul and I have been discussing the idea of extending our driveway ever since we first moved in and it’s not until now that we’ve had the time nor the inclination to actually do anything about it. This week, however, the boys have been busy and after almost eight years of wishing and waiting for a little less wall and a little more walkway, we’ve not got just that!

The wall and the driveway are quite literally done and dusted and with the grass now gone, we can go ahead and complete covering what was the front lawn in white chippings which shouldn’t take too long at all! I’m super pleased as with all the extra room, parking is now a piece of cake.

Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
