Girl on wheels

Another day that’s been a little too busy for a review post. I do have a good reason though.

I bought a car today!

After months (years, really) of dithering about it and feeling like the whole thing was far too complicated, I made the most of Geth’s family visiting and went to the dealership to do some test drives. Due to some help from my father-in-law, I am now the owner of a nice little Skoda that will carry me, Geth and our increasing amounts of luggage when we want to go places! I’m picking it up tomorrow and am very excited about welcoming it home.

Following some sterling work on our garden (as well as the help with the car-buying), Keith and Helen headed off this evening after we’d had a nice meal in the local pub.

Another hectic day tomorrow, but it’s mostly the fun kind of hectic!

OOTD: to be fair it’s mostly the car in this picture – my comfy driving outfit was of secondary concern today! Glasses Emporio Armani (2017), jacket unknown brand (estimated vintage 1990s, bought at vintage shop 2003), bag CXL by Christian Lacroix (2018), t-shirt H&M (2018), belt H&M (2017), leggings Primark (2018), trainers Reebok (2013).

How does your garden grow

No review post today as I’ve been busy. Geth’s dad and stepmum, Keith and Helen, arrived early this morning to spend a couple of days sorting out our overgrown mess of a garden (Geth and I are NOT gardeners and even if we were, we just wouldn’t have the time for it on top of everything else). It already looks a lot better than it did!

In the evening, Geth and I went for a quick meal out and then popped into the pub to say hi to boardgaming friends.

Another busy day tomorrow!
