New Car found!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all having a good weekend. Well, now John def. decided to go for the new job we had to buy a new car pretty quick!! Only two weeks to go before he starts!!  So panic panic!!! Panic no longer though!! We found our lovely car yesterday!! Im so excited about it - it gorgeous!!! The exciting thing about it is that it will be all ours - no longer a company car.   We had two cars to look at yesterday one in Ilford, Essex and one in Morden SW London.  So we drove all the way to London yesterday, started out at 9:30am.  The car we test drove in Ilford was nice but it wasn't really the colour we were after also it had quite a few bumps on it.  We held it verbally for the rest of the day then drove all the way over to the other side of London to see the car in Morden.  Well all we could say was WOW when we saw it - it is in beautiful condition, lovely colour, only 18 months old and a good price.  We test drove it and I could tell John had fallen in love with it as I had!!! So after a little dealing with the salesperson we are now the proud owners of a Peugeot 307 sw xsi HDI136 (ive no idea what all that means either so here is a picture of it!).

Now the one in the picture above is the closest I could get to show you our new purchase, the picture shows a · 307 SW SE HDi 136. Ours is a XSI (doesnt look any different to me!) - Im not really that into cars.  Anyway we pick this baby up in a couple of weeks - i cant wait!!! Im so excited!! Silly me!!! The reason Im so excited it that eventually it will become my car (3 yrs time!).  I still have to put up with my trusty Ford Escort but at least I can drive the new one when John doesnt need it!!

Right so now Ive bored you to tears Im off to take the doggie out in the sun - oh and buy the way Im working on John about a new puppy!!! I want a King Charles Cavalier - my Oscar loves other dogs and I think it would be a great little friend for him.  But, John says we have to wait a while - let him settle in new job first.  Me broody for another pup!! LOL

Hi, you can never bore me when it comes to cars......I love 'em (except for those stupid Smart cars!!!) in all shapes and sizes.....don't like the fat bummed Megane though! Oh and Escorts are nippy little motors aren't they!!!
