Goodbye Cooper Trooper

Following my first fight with breast cancer in 2009 where I was brought face to face with my own mortality - we purchased a Mini Cooper. My dream car since losing my first original Mini which I learnt to drive in and had many adventures.

We took delivery of "Cooper Trooper" which is the name I gave him and had a blast.

Now he has gone.

Basically we have outgrown him and our circumstances have changed so he has gone. 

Our replacement is a more practical Nissan X-Trail.

Many adventures with Cooper Trooper though, many great memories too!

We took Coops to Rhuddlan Castle and then again to the historic Rhuddlan Rocks with The Alarm, Mike Peters. There we actually filmed the crowd end scene to his film "Vinyl".

Coops took us to quite a few Gatherings 

He took us to Snowdon Rocks 2012 to raise money for the Love Hope Strength Foundation.

Coops has seen my boys outgrow him - not much room for teenage boys in the back 

Coops inspired my friend to make this for me on yet another of our adventures

Outside my home

Our final adventure in him was last Monday to the Albert Docks in Liverpool

South Wales road trip to see 4th Street Traffik at their Halloween bash

Its been great having Mini Cooper but its time to move on.


  1. Hi Sarah,

    I was hoping to get in touch with you about your blog. My wife is a cancer survivor and we were hoping you might be able to help us with something. Do you think you could email me when you get a chance? Thanks so much.
