First of all, many happy returns of the day to tooth_fairy
. Enjoy a day of Being Given Stuff.
Second of all, damnit and tarnation. It appears that Social Tuesday is falling apart. castorlion
- you still planning on coming into town or should we just re-arrange for another day totally? Would be lovely to see you.
Third of all, Northumbria rocks. There are reasons for this, but they may only make sense to me. Oh, and did you know that Cumbria may have had its own language once? It would have been a gaelic tongue, pretty closely related to Welsh.
Fourth of all, I have bought a car. I decided to embrace my inner spoilt heiress for once, and was not sensible. I did not purchase a nice cheap reliable car. I looked at Toyotas, and then the brat within me cried out and I decided to do something I'd wanted to do for many years.
I bought a mini.
Not just any mini as well...( This mini... )
It's a Mini One (I was just about sensible enough to not buy a Mini Cooper) and it was new in June 2004. It has a welsh dragon on the roof, which pierot
thinks it kinda cute and vilenspotens
thinks is kinda tacky. I personally think I shall go with jez's opinion, mostly because I like dragons.
It has a name as well. And possibly a gender. She shall be called 'Pridwen', which is a welsh name (in honour of the dragon) and in welsh myth is the name of King Arthur's ship. It all makes sense if you're me.
The only sad thing in this happy story is that I haven't actually managed to get Pridwen home yet, due to insurance and tax taking time. This meant that yesterday was largely spent trying to get insurance organised. Hopefully twil all be good by Wednesday.
I know it isn't sensible. I know it isn't the most economical thing ever, but it makes me happy. I've wanted a mini for years and now I have one.
And finally - I hope christabelle9
has a safe journey home and I hope to see her again soon. It was lovely to have you over, even if I wasn't able to spend much time with you and I wish you and rweishaar
all the luck in the world.
And those are all my livejournal meanderings for the day.
