go ahead for car

in what must be the longest mess around ever for getting a motability car [and nothing to do with motability themselves or not having HRM either as have had an 'indefinite award' of it since near the start of last year],and being told coud not afford to run a citroen picasso [though coud afford the car,which woud be pointless as it woud just be sat there looking good and going no where],have now been told am able to afford a cheaper running one,so had come across the citroen nemo,
which staff say am able to afford.

Had been to the citroen garage today,so coud see the car properly, the staff there were very understanding [they had turned off their music system before had gone in].
attention had got hooked on a modern looking car,near the door [this was indoors],dont know which citroen it was-but it looked like an older seat leon cupra/fr [very sporty looking],these are too small in size and height for self anyway being a backseat only user,but have been told about sporty models of cars before being very noisy [supposed to be what the boy racers like?] and use up petrol/diesel quick?

So,it was on to the nemo in the show room.
it looked so much better than it does on the internet/in photo, really something different.
it fits own needs perfectly,the motability guy said its just a bit smaller than the berlingo and has no difference in their price as was also thinking of getting one of them,but they did not have one in at the time to show,one of the lads that used to live with had a berlingo but his was ramp and wheelchair adapted so looked a lot different,plus show room guy said only the nemo came in a pale blue so that sold it.
there doesnt seem to be a choice in wheel covers/seat trims etc,but the standard stuff looks great already.
the crelling harness is going to be added on after as not surprisingly
all of the adaptions that can be got via motability are only physical related.

it has come as great news to self as have been getting worse,and have starting to cut quite badly again as do not know how to communicate what is going on in head,most of the time do not even know either.
have gone back to using strong edged PECS as cutting tools when desperate,as it is almost impossible to get hold of drink cans to rip metal from,shoudnt really be saying this as do not want to give others ideas as well.

finally,nothing to do with what have written so far,but get well soon to uncle A. [the family know this blog-his son who is younger than self is also autistic],he had multiple heart bypass[?] surgery on monday morning.
