    Default Early Birthday Present

    Those of you who know me on Facebook, will know I've not been having a good time recently.
    My mum was getting quite worried about me (I was getting worried about me!!!)

    So she called me up, and I told her everything that was bothering me... and she said I needed a new outlook.
    And this should start with getting some decent transport, which has a heater, (the ZX 16v is like driving a refrigerator, not good in the cold weather!) and it needs to be reliable, and be economical...

    so she bought me this as an early birthday present








    It's a 2005 C5 VTR 2.0 HDi 16v.

    I'm so totally overwhelmed with emotion just now...I just can't believe it!

    That's wonderful. Enjoy. I think your mum deserves a collective Aussiefrogs hug.

    For all of us who can no longer hug our Mum, give her lots of hugs . I have been worried about you Smiffy and was really happy for you today when I saw your news. A new car and a new start?
