After seven long years, we traded in our faithful old Ford Fiesta this week. Such a reliable little car and one filled with so many wonderful memories. But, we have been a family for almost four and a half years and until now, have not owned a 'family' car. We managed while it was just Angus... then Felix arrived and from that moment the compact hatchback became decidedly more squashy.
We are quite taken with our new (second hand) purchase. The difference in size, power, handling and comfort, compared to what we've been accustomed to, is immense. Driving is indeed a pleasure again. So like a teenager with their first set of wheels, I've been jumping at any chance to get behind the wheel. No doubt the novelty will wear off, in time and I'll be back to driving for necessity's sake. Until then, life is a highway for me and my boys. And the start of a brand new era for our family of four.
