If Him Upstairs is Listening.

The other day the eldest pointed at a white car and asked if we could have one of those.  He said he liked it because because it was 'big, flashy and shiny.'

I had to admire his taste.  It was one of those new smaller Range Rovers, we've since discovered to be called an Evoque.  

We decided on a navy one.


After that little chat he said we should really have three cars - the posh one for a dog (which we don't have), our old Ford Focus for every day use (which we do have) and a big fat van for camping (where we never go).

Then he added a fourth too - a Lamborghini - which would be good for me and my boyfriend (also non-existent) to go out on dates. Stop laughing at the back there. 

Anyway, not being a greedy woman, and just in case Him Upstairs is listening, I thought it best to make it clear that I'd settle for just the one.  And it doesn't even have to be navy.  We wouldn't mind the colour, really (although I'm not fussy on the Bronze one), especially now the panoramic roof, rear seat entertainment and gorgeous leather interiors and other amazing extras have been brought to my attention whilst searching for an image for you. 


We hope to get a dog, so promise it wouldn't be a waste.  We'd happily use it every day and be proud to take it camping and wash it lovingly by hand when we got home.  The bits we could reach anyhow.


And, frankly, I'm too old to have a boyfriend who didn't drive his own car anyway.  So it's settled.  


Thanks ever so much.

Anya xx


P.S. I do believe in encouraging children to follow their dreams, don't you?

  2. I'm guessing they didn't give you an Evoque in return for writing this post. Thought not. :(

  6. You sound like you've been drinking. This post has a very jolly tongue in cheek tone that's made me smile. I wish someone could wave a magic wand. You deserve it x

    1. No, it's just me, my normal self my dear. Things have a way of working out when you put them 'out there' I think. I'm content with our old Focus, but wouldn't be averse to a bit of wand waving if it happened. Thank you for your kind words (apart from the bit about drinking obvs! ;0) xx

  7. Since we got a dog we have found it very hard to downsize our car, it isn't anywhere near as flash as this, but I just wanted to reassure you this car would be very practical too x

    1. Thank you very much for your reassurance Penny. We can pass it on to Him Upstairs when he's listening. And we love your dog :)

  8. Wow - that's a nice car. Unfortunately, with two young adults driving my car (and dinging it, and denying it), there's no way I could entertain the possibility. It's a second hand Volvo for me, until I'm an empty nester. Given that my youngest is 11, I will probably skip the driving when he leaves and go straight to the old people's home ;-)

  9. Yep one for me too please. I once knew a lady who had 3 cars, a Honda for the school run, an estate car for the shopping and a Porsche for nights out - now that's flashy!

    And to answer your question, yes, I do believe in encouraging children to follow their dreams... xx
