    We put a deposit down on our first proper family car today and part exchanged it with our little 3 door punto! So excited, it is all starting to feel so real now :)

    We have to wait for all the paper work to go through but should have our new car by end of Jan - so exciting :)

    Here's a pic of it! It's a lovely family car and so nice to drive!

    Hope you're all having a nice weekend xx

    SPD is feeling manageable at the mo, I'm back to work which I'm really enjoying and they are being really great so if I start to get aches and pains they let me come on home.

    Only 10 weeks of work to go and Xmas is in between that - our babies will soon be here!!

    That's brilliant Nurse! Did he say that you could take your Dad's in the end?

    My OH decided it was time for us to buy a more reliable car. I used to have an 02 Mazda and he decided that I needed a more up to date car. He decided an Audi A6 was going to fit both kids in, with all pushchairs etc!!! It is so lovely! I didn't realise how bad my old at was, it really smelt of fuel all of the time, an there were always noises coming out of it that shouldn't have!

    It is so exciting!!!! It's going to be perfect for my gorgeous little family!!!! Xxx

    we sold both my t reg punto, and his rover 200 (3door) in march and brought a peaugot 206 esate 05 plate (not that big, smaller than most estates) desel, £30 road tax for the yr, insurance was cheaper until hubby decided to get more points (he drives a van for work for a living)
    we oringinally brought it for the dogs (we had 2 at the time, sadly lost one the day after wegot the car!)
    but its fab i love it. its big but small

    OH said we will get a new car maybe next year, he fancies a audi Q7 or Range Rover, both have big boots and Q7 has 7 seats....we are only having 1 baby so must mean we need to shop more to fill it! ha
    Current car is sports BMW 3 series 07 reg, but has 3 doors, I am just prepared to have my head banged many a time trying to get my little boy in the back! xx
