It’s all been quite exciting the last few days! Yesterday I met up with Anne-Marie and Esther, with whom I’ll be house-sharing next year, and we looked at houses in the paper and on the internet, trying to find places we liked! It was so much fun! I’ve not done this since my first year at uni, and even then the house was found by someone else and I just agreed to live there!! We’ve got a long list now of houses we want to view. I don’t know how we’re going to get out to see them, some are scattered far and wide across Colchester.

The other exciting thing is that I’m in a position now where I think I can afford to buy a car!! How cool is that?!!! I’ve already been on the AutoTrader web site, and did arrange to go and see a nice Mini the other day, but someone got there before me so I’ll just have to keep looking. It does make me feel very grown up though, looking at houses and cars and investigating car insurance and all that… Yey!!

Oh, I am absolutely thrilled for you!! I would expect you to do nothing other than search for the perfect Mini 🙂 I thought, perhaps, you might buy the red ones from you parents? Either way, this will give me more incentive to visit – I’ve never even SAT in one!! Best of luck in your search.

It is exciting, isn’t it? I’ve put the admin fee down on a flat last Saturday, and bought a new car. Admittedly from someone I know, and I’m going to be paying for it in instalments, but still… it’s all good fun 🙂

I wish I could afford a house and car … Of course some driving lessons before I got the latter might help!

Why not get a mini tank? Far more interesting then a mini car.

Right, that’s it! Whoever this Joe Blogs is, admit who you are and come clean. Unless of course you’re ACTUALLY called Joe Blogs and are not just ripping off my blog and posing as me to make comments on other people’s blogs …
