We have had a really rather busy week this week – on Tuesday the Range Rover had a flat tyre when we went out to take the boys to school. So we had to take them in the other cars. It was raining, so daddy was very pleased to be having to take Tina out 🙁 Olly enjoyed the journey to school nonetheless, and it meant that Elliot requested the same means of getting to school the following day 🙂 Apparently being taken to school in Bobby was OK but Tina is the future.
Bobby went in to JCT600 Porsche in Leeds for service on Tuesday as well and has come out with an all clear – GREAT news as Simon was slightly concerned that we could have something looming around the corner. Well, the fact that the battery in her is not a specific Porsche one is an advisory that we should consider – a small 280UKP item !!!! LOL
While we were there we noticed a stunning 2008 Boxster S Sport Edition in a sort of copper / brass metallic colour with sand coloured (embossed) leather. A snap at just 25K 🙂 No sat nav so it was a bit of a non starter – Bobby has sat nav and is actually a very good car so there will be no replacing going on 🙂
The really funny thing was that we collected the car on Wednesday and Simon got a call on Wednesday evening from a guy in the sales department to see if we are interested in upgrading – can only believe that we were seen looking at the 2008 item and they are running a little low on numbers thus far this month… Good sales tactics though 🙂
Thankfully Bruce’s tyre was repairable – the first time that this has ever happened for Simon – a 15 UKP repair rather than 300 UKP replace…
We are making good progress with a company for the bathroom, downstairs bathroom and kitchen although they are going to need to work significantly on their price if we are to go with them. We also need to make more progress with other companies to see what else is available to us.
We took a ride out to York in Tina on Thursday given she was already dirty, it made sense to enjoy her. We confirmed that the heated seat in the drivers seat does not work so we will need to contact the warranty company to determine what they can do to repair it.
All of the cars have their correct registrations on now as well 🙂
Onto more important topics, Elliot is really enjoying school it seems although yesterday he had a little setback with one of the girls in his class wanted to play with him – although got a little rough and swung him around by his jacket. He was worried (apparently) that his coat would rip and there were tears. A little girl in the class above him brought him a book today as a present as she saw that he was upset yesterday 🙂 What a wonderful selfless thing to do 🙂 Thank you whoever you are…
Elliot is reading books that he brings home from school and has started singing to us – there is a concert in school at the beginning of December – we are looking forward to it already. He seems on the face of it to be getting involved in things rather than sitting on the curbside as perhaps we might have expected. He is really impressing us – great work Elly 🙂
Olly has decided that he does not want to go to school at all, and has begun panicking in the school car park as to whether he is going in to the school to stay each day 🙁 He has started lobbying at the beginning of the morning journey to persuade mummy and daddy that he does not need to go to school today…
