Today I have had a day off from my retail working life so disgracefully slept in till 11.30 am! Shocking I know but needs must!! I was sat in bed reading till 2am! Going to do a book review soon :).
I then went Car Shopping with Mother Ginge. I've had it in my head that my current car (Mini) is too expensive to run... I think if i'm being brutally honest, I'm just incredibly bored of it.. something I never thought I would say. My sensible half of my brain swayed towards the Fiat 500. They have a good mpg and are quite cute and girly. They did absolutely nothing for me. The nicest was the limited edition Gucci Model and even that looks like a toy.
Swiftly moving on.......
I have to admit my inner man comes out when it comes to cars. (That's what happens when you grow up with a Dad like mine! Being surrounded by cars and motor sport all my life. Not complaining!) A car has to be sporty, sexy, look insanely good and be well built. I like cars to feel heavy when you drive them if you get what I mean?
Just as it happens the Citroen garage was over the road... so I go over for a look and fall completely head over heels (and I knew I would) with the DS3. I've always had the hots for them but actually sitting in one and looking at them just blew my mind even more. I now want a nice DS3 falling short of £16,000. So much for opting for a cheaper car. I just can't help myself. I love driving, it's something I adore, it doesn't stress me out, it does the complete opposite. I crave the drive. So why not have an amazing car I can enjoy. If only I had £16,000.... Damn. I don't really want to buy one on finance either, I've always owned my cars and would like to keep it that way. I can always dream can't I ???
