I am still amazed at how many people donated to the car fund, and helped me to buy Martha, and your generosity continues to overwhelm me.
The other day I got a message via Twitter from @HeydayVS, asking if I was still after a CD player for the car. I replied I was, and we arranged a swap of knitting for the CD player! Fantastico! In case you didn’t know, Heyday is a wonderful online shop selling reproduction vintage clothing, and should definately be checked out if you are after vintage style clothing, plus the lady who runs it, Shona, is an absolutely wonderful person, and provides the best customer service! I have quite a few items from the shop now, and can highly recommed them, top quality stuffs!! Thank you Shona!
I have also been offered some weatherstrips by a fellow MMOC member, Matt, and as previously mentioned, Ashley is the fixing-things-that-go-wrong man (I am baking this weekend by the way, Ashley!!).
If you would still like to make a donation to the car fund, and be included in the Cakey Road Trip (hopefully taking placed July/August time) you can do! You can donate money via Paypal by using the link on the right, or if you are welcome to donate something specific if you prefer! If you have any spare bits lying about, drop me a line!!
Tying to rescue the original blog still, which has lots about the fundraising effort & the story of going to pick up Martha! I hope it can be saved!!
Anyway, it is over a month since I picked her up from Leicester, and apart from a holiday in Prague, and a trip back up north, we have been or a drive pretty much every single day!
In case you didn’t know, my buying Martha was part funded buy donations through the original blog, by the wonderful people of the interwebs! It was a silly idea I had one evening, and I don’t think anyone was more suprised than me when the money started coming in! In return for donations, I offered home made cake, which would be delivered by me, in a UK wide road trip. I am yet to do the road trip, but I am in the process of planning (so if you did donate and haven’t done so already, please email your name & address to email@example.com!).
Anyway, Martha & I have been having a wonderful time, and over the next few days I will be updating with all the little bits of work I have done on her so far, and then upadating regularly with more of our adventures!
