Well having trawled many garages, looked at lots of cars, Jamie at last acquired his new car via our next door neighbour! Ian is a salesman for the local Ford dealer in town and we visited the showroom to ask for some advice. The garage had a Peugot 106, 25000 miles and 02 plate and far too much for Jamie’s small savings. However, Ian offered to buy the car for Jamie at no profit (he is allowed to buy four a year). It took £1000 off the price of the car and put it in Jamie’s price bracket. He is now driving it! The insurance was ridiculously expensive and he is paying it in monthly instalments.
The colts side I coach took on Worcester at the week-end and lost. They were a little overawed at playing such prestigious opposition and didn’t do themselves justice. But, we celebrated well into the early hours and I acquired a hangover.
Sarah got an ‘A’ for maths in her GCSE’s mock and we are very pleased. She is going to Charlotte’s at the weekend.
Sue has been feeling a bit peeky this week (probably in sympathy with all the rain we have had recently) and I had a dose of the Winter Vomiting Virus last night!!!!!!! Hence a day off school and why am writing this now.
