A quick summary: Last week we moved to a new flat in a new city, where we are expecting to have a baby in about 6 or 7 weeks time. Naturally this is the perfect time to also buy a new (used) car.
So we did.
We traded in the red Mini and got a black Honda Fit. It's nice! It's not a Mini (which we must have said at least 50 times today - we were, after all, at a Mini dealership, surrounded by Minis and everyone in the building was wearing a t-shirt proclaiming their love of Minis), but it's nice!
Of course my good opinion was immediately secured when we went for our test drive, because when I opened the car door it smelled like a really nice packet of orange almond cookies. We now own a car that smells delicious. Beat that!
