I finally took the plunge (after a few months saving…) and got myself a car (call it an “advance” birthday present). I had planned to do so more towards the end of the month, but this little blue gem came along, and in my opinion it wouldn’t last long until it was sold.
Very, very basic – no electric windows, no central locking, no power steering, and a ridiculously small 3-cylinder, 973cc engine. But it does only have 23600 miles on the clock (about 45000 km for those on the other side of the Channel), not bad for a soon-to-be 14-year-old car! And it runs like a dream…
So, now, off to the beach, off to the river, off to somewhere remote – the possibilities are endless! (sadly, the money to pay for the petrol isn’t… but this is a very frugal machine, so it is not that bad!)
And now, I must arrange some time to write a proper blog post. But the endless pile of lab reports to mark is also begging for attention… bah! 😛
