I've booked Mrs A and me for a 3 night break in Paris for her Birthday in early July - thats a smile as i) she deserves it, ii) it will be a nice break, iii) she deserves it again and iv) it consumes the new car fund so Helga also stays.

Annoyance ? I sent an email to friends about it so nothing else would be scheduled for that weekend and of course included Mrs A in the group.

At least she is looking forward to it.
Nice work!

I've spent this evening slowly convincing my Dad, that, as he's recently retired, its high time Maw and Paw got a decent car..

cue lots of 5 and 7 series bmw diesels, and the occasional nippy petrol too..not to mention the mother's penchant for Jaguars..

Oh the 6pot/v8 goodness of it all-novocane for the soul.

Even better is some of the diseasals returning better mpg than their 2.0 auto avensis petrol
