cars, beaches & colds

A nice day spent at the beach today. We all went en mass down to Weston beach for a Mitsubishi Delica Owners Club meet! Thats the car (well, big, gas guzzling people carrier thing) we bought a few weeks ago, and the thing that Mr A has been spending all his time & money on recently.

I mean, a member of the owners club for a car! I ask you. It's a mode of transport. It gets us from A to B. I only bought it because we all fit inside & it can cope with the milage we do, while being £1000's cheaper than the Toyota Previa, which is what I wanted.

Still, it was a nice relaxing day. Mr A looked at other peoples cars & thought about what else he can spend his money on, Little A's played happily all day, and even Mstr A managed the whole day without any real problems. If Mr A hadn't given me his lurgy (a really nasty cold) I would be dead happy!

Not particularly looking forward to 9 hours of work tomorrow feeling ill, but we'll have to see how it goes!

All the children are now bathed & sleeping soundly after their energetic day, so we're going to treat ourselves to a pizza - the first take out of the month, as we're on a cost-sutting spree at the moment.

    I've been the grass widow of a member of a car club for years.

    It means lots of weekends with the house to myself. It also means he has to have the latest compact camping gear, we have a garage that holds only his precious Westfield (that's the car!), and pre-garage we had a house that doubled as a garage! and Saturdays waiting for 'the call' telling me he has flipped it on a circuit somewhere...btw - not received that one yet!

    Mind you, His Nibs *built* his car :-)
    So I wouldn't deny him his pleasure in his roadster - seeing as he went to all that trouble :-)

    But a Delica Owners club?? [chuckle]

    CQ
