Sorry for the lack of posts but I have had a busy week and my parents have been staying with us again. I shall be doing more regular posts from now on :)
Well I have finally made a big purchase and bought a car....! I pick it up next weekend and I am so excited because I have not been on the road for like a year and a half which is when my old Ford Fiesta went to car heaven. Since then as I worked in town I usually bussed it or got the train as parking in town is so expensive. But lately since I started my new job in January (which incidentally is only a 5 minute drive from home and has free parking) I decided I wanted to get a car again. To be honest I am not someone who will be driving very far in it. We use Mike's car for further afield trips but I just wanted something to get me to work and back, go shopping, vist friends and go to restaurants/cinema etc.
I did not want to spend £1000's on a car thats not really going to be going very far. I mean I could have gone to a car showroom and bought a brand new car but whats the point it would be a waste of money, therefore I have bought a secondhand Seat Arosa (similar to a VW Lupo) its only a 1.0 which is cheap on petrol too. Mike knows the guy I bought it from and he is pretty trustworthy plus he has been Mike's mechanic for years.
I cannot wait to get back on the road.
