Good morning all, hope everyone is well.

I am getting very excited! grin Tomorrow we are going to collect my birthday present car!

Mr P is taking the day off, we will drive to Exeter St David's station, get the train to Bristol then a short taxi ride to the garage. We are planning a leisurely drive back, stop for lunch somewhere and then to Exeter to pick up our other car.

I am hoping that the weather will be good so that we can have the roof down. I expect Mr P will drive from Bristol, but I'm not sure which car I will be driving back from Exeter. (It will probably be the Focus, as I prefer to pootle round the local area for a first drive, just to get a feel for it, big wuss that I am!)

I am very grin grin grin grin

gracesmum ours is Wednesday - it was an impulsive decision and the Friday was the only day available at the register office!
Hope you enjoy your day too sunshine

Enjoy phoenix but do remember whose car it is! Last time I bought a car all the 'boys' wanted me to choose the car they wanted to drive!

Anne58 Tue 23-Jul-13 11:18:09

I sorted out the insurance yesterday, Mr P is only a named driver! grin

Having never driven one, it will be "interesting" to see how I get on with it!

Don't get caught with the roof down in a storm! This morning a sudden hailstorm drenched me between car and house!

Oh how lovely. Enjoy.

This is silly, I'm getting ridiculously over excited! grin grin

Goodness knows how I will ever get to sleep tonight! It's a 14 year old car for heavens sake! Still, totally grin

Best birthday present ever, even though I'm not sure how I will feel driving it! (Providing I can actually get in the thing!)
