Week 34 Project365 – 2015

Week 34 Project365 – 2015

We’ve had a good week on the whole.  Here’s the highlights of Week 34 Project365 –

Monday – He dragged me out to look for a new car. We have a shortlist of makes and models and how much we are willing to pay.
We headed down to Penarth Road in Cardiff where there are a lot of garages to choose from.
At the Honda garage we saw a Jazz which was in our price range and less than 6 months old. The salesman hovered…and told us it was a pre-registered car and they also had another available. Both for much less than selecting them as a new car. He offered to value my Leon  and came back with a resonable offer. He told us they also had a blue Jazz with leather seats for a little extra. Mmm boring silver or shiny blue???
Before going any further we decided on a test drive. It went well – the Jazz isn’t as powerful as my Leon but we don’t do the mileage I used to do when I worked in Bristol.
After the test drive we had a coffee and discussed whether to go ahead or keep looking. I could already see that Hubby was keen on the leather seated blue one and to be honest I knew we were unlikely to get a better car for the price. Cue negotiations!! I managed to get the salesman to offer more for my car and bring the price down even more. Just have to wait for them to bring it over from Bristol. Hopefully picking it up early next week. Piccie to follow. 🙂

Tuesday – We had Ashley for the day. We had to go to the hospital first for Hubby’s appointment which went well. It took longer than we thought so went to Tredegar Park instead of driving down to Roath Park in Cardiff.
Ashley had a great time running around.  On the way home we stopped at a pub.. as you do.. 🙂

Wednesday – No cinema today neither of us was in the mood.  However I did come home with 2 big bags of bargains from work. We had a delivery of stock that wasn’t for our store and it couldn’t be sent back.
Four Denby mugs – £4
Four Denby Pasta bowls – £4
Big cushion with cat picture on it – £1
Set of measuring spoons – 25p
Three pillar candles – £1.50
Little Tykes plane – £4

Nothing much else for rest of week. Shopping and work was about it!

    Great Denby bargains! Sounds like you got a good deal on the car too.

    love those Denby bargains ! And another blogger having a new car – makes me want one more than ever now! Lovely photos of your grandsons and you cat. And i agree about the peanut butter oreos – they are to as nice as original and the golden ones are just like custard creams! x

    Good luck to Betty….the only car we have ever named had a very short and traumatic stay with us, and when hubby named the new car last week, I joked with him that he was sealing its fate before we even got it…..hmmm how right I was!! He has been told if he names another car he is getting a divorce!!!!
    Chuckled at Theo, and I think it is lovely how we can see our children in their children.

      It’s such a shame you’ve had such a bad experience with your new car.
      Only named her Betty because a girl that worked for me had the same car and called her’s Leona and I have Betty Boo on my keyrings.

    Wow, you’ve been busy. I took my 3 year old to London for the first time this wee. That was quite exciting, but tiring too!

      Hello. Thanks for popping by. 🙂 Just taking our 4 year old grandson out locally tires me out!!
      London is an exciting place for all ages isn’t it?
