my poor, old faithful car :(. I think I shall be traumatized for a little while to come! She has been part of our family for 10 years now and has taken us on various holidays, shopping trips, to various crops and also the odd trip to A & E!
Anyway, she has had waaaay too much spent on her recently and was due to be taxed again at the end of March. Unfortunately of late she had become very VERY sick and I have only been able to limp about locally in her....so yesterday....she took her last spin on local roads...(well, on ANY roads actually lol) Dale followed me and we took her to the local scrap yard....and there I left her :(...........
Farewell my oil guzzling, rattly money eater!



And a biiiiig WELCOME to my lovely, shiny( and rattle less) new drive!
Yep, I am now officially the owner of a lovely Skoda!!!!!


.

Noooooooooooooo! Not one like that!!!!!

one like this!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>> actually this is her¬

She is lovely....and has leather heated seats.....and air con ( I had to open the windows for the same effect in my old car!!)...and 4 wheel drive.....AND central locking!!!!! Can you tell I am not used to having a * normal * car!

So....now all I need are a new air freshener....and some pink furry dice and matching steering wheel cover!

I think my trauma is starting to fade.......he!he!he!...xxxxxx

I was floundering for words to "congratulate" you on the new Skoda when I saw the blue number thinking oh my she has gone mad!!! UNTIL I scrolled down and saw your lovely shiney silver one haha... looks lovely I am sure you will fall in love with her and and her extra bits and pieces in no time ;-)

    Take care and drive safely!!
