Whilst M has been legal to drive since this last summer (Hooray for passing the driving test!), we’d been so busy that he hadn’t been able to actually acquire a car to use with said licence. That was rectified at the beginning of October when he bought his mum’s old car. We are now the proud caretakers of a fabulously British little red Mini!
M’s travel time to work was reduced, and we could now drive out to Sainsbury’s for our groceries on a bi-weekly basis rather than relying on a big grocery delivery once a week and sporadic runs to the nearby Tesco.
This also means it’s so much easier to get to see friends and relatives across the country, of which you will see in later posts!
