New Car - Dogmobile or Babymobile??!!
Well I've had to change my car. Poor old Octavia the Skoda will move on to pastures new! In its place I have just acquired a tatty Focus Zetec C-Max. Nothing flash - that's not my style - just cheaper to tax and to run - now, that's my style! However this new car has made me feel funny things! I took it on a test drive and felt all mumsy all of a sudden!! Although a small car, it does have the feel of a people carrier as the seats are quite high and so I feel all high up!! (Or maybe I need to re-adjust the driver's seat!) On the test drive, it had the previous owner's child-seat in the back (not the child though!) and it did feel rather strange driving around with this in the back - I felt a bit like a mummy!! Even though the car will be transporting work equipment and my dogs, it feels like it's in the wrong role and should have children in there instead! How weird! I don't feel broody as such, but just like there should be a child in the back and not dogs!! (by the way I am not wishing that there were children instead of my gorgeous dogs - it's merely an observation!) Hmmm! After the dogs have been in there a few times it should take on more of a dogwagon feel! - and as long as I don't start singing nursery rhymes, I think it should pass!! Think it was the child-seat, discarded Fruit Shoot bottles and crisp remnants that threw me - soon it will be dog-hair, mud and smeared dog-snot on the windows to correct this picture!! :))
