Good morning. Round here yesterday was a very blustery day with some strong winds and some very heavy showers. This morning it is really rather cold so, early as it is, I have turned up the heating. Today I woke at around three, which is really absolutely ridiculous and I am hoping I can get another hour in soon before getting up properly and starting the day.
So - I have my new babe and I realise I haven't really said very much about her. So here we go.
It's another Peugeot, a 208 Style. I got on so well with my 306 I wanted another Peugeot if at all possible. It is four months old and had 3 (yes, three) on the mileometer. However, it's counted as second hand because it was bought as a quota car, initially owned by the garage. I got a chunk off for 'depreciation' and then another chunk off because it was a saleroom car so it was a fantastic bargain and, for this if for nothing else, I consider myself very, very lucky.
The only thing I would have chosen differently was the colour but there wasn't any choice in the matter! Dark grey is OK
The road tax for the 306 was £140 last year. For the 208 it is £20. So she's already starting to pay for herself, so to speak.
That's about it really. I enjoyed driving yesterday for the first time in quite a while which says it all.
Apart from that it was a lazy day with a snooze.
