I bought a new car - about two weeks ago, now, it's been a long time since I posted. It's a Ford Fiesta, and a 1.4 5-door rather that the 1.2 3 doors I've had in the past. It's still a little cramped in the back, but simply being able to get in and out means it's a lot bigger. The extra engine size makes it a lot more nippy than the Corsa was. I managed to get a reasonable price for the Corsa as well, a thousand pounds, which is far more than I was expecting given that it's only a matter of time before the engine frags itself. I did explain how much damage there was in there, so they can't blame me when it does.

Also? I've put an offer in on a place, and it got accepted! It's on a flat rather than a house, and it's at the upper end of what I can afford, but still within my price range. The block is a newer block, and the flat itself is very well maintained and big inside - most new builds (flat or house) tend towards the tiny box rooms due to the British obsession with having more rooms, not usable rooms. I've never lived in a flat, so this should be interesting.

So now it's back to the waiting game. I'm not sure what's worse, having something to do that I can mess up, or having nothing to do and having to blame someone else when something goes wrong.

Probably the second, because then you've got someone to swear at.
