So, I’ve decided on a car – the Toyota Fortuner. I test drove the car again and it drives very nicely. I don’t know where I was going with that whole sexy and sleek thing; I had a momentary lapse of reason in which I forgot I am a mother of three small kids. It is Friend Mel’s fault. She got a very, very sexy new VW Sirocco, which got me all hot under the collar and made me want sexy too. Luckily sanity prevailed. Practical won over sexy. I am feeling very relieved – the Fortuner is very spacious, drives very nicely and has 7 seats. It is the right car for me and for the kids. Yay. The decision making process was consuming far too much of my time. Car will be delivered in six weeks time.
In other news, I have no news. Rose was away for a few days and I got to play SAHM for a while. I realized that I am hopelessly under qualified for the job, I am FAR better as a WAHMWH (work at home mom with help)
Marko is on leave for two weeks and it is actually so nice to have him around. Granted it has only been three days so there is still plenty of time for him to irritate the living hell out of me, but it is VERY nice to have someone to take the kids to school etc.
Oh, I had my first proper session with the Personal Trainer who is Used to Working with The Elderly – It was fun, even if I nearly died after cycling for about 25 seconds. I managed to burn up enough calories to cancel out AT LEAST three of the olives on the pizza I had for lunch – WIN. I am off to have a glass of Chardonnay to celebrate.
Love, Gym Barbie.
