Friends near and around Sydney, I know we probably haven’t seen so much of each other due to months of bad public transport and exhaustingly long bus trips. Well, if you are wondering, ‘I wonder why Steph doesn’t come around anymore?’, wonder no more. In exactly 6 days, I will be at a neighbourhood near you. Or in your neighbourhood. Maybe in your house. In your kitchen. Eating your food. Playing with your cats. I shall invite myself. This is because I bought myself a car over the weekend. It is due to arrive into my greedy little arms on Monday. Friends, that is 6 days from today. Soon, you will be wondering why I come around so freaking often.
It is a cute little Mazda 2 Neo. It was sitting there under the shade in the car yard. Beckoning. I walked past and checked out the other cars, but I knew it was going to be this one. If you asked me one week ago if I was ever going to buy this car, I would have said no. The entire year I had wanted to return and get another Toyota Rav4. I searched high and low but to no avail. So this week I had an epiphany while walking to the station one morning. It suddenly occurred to me that if I was not to own a large 4 x 4, I shall own a mini-car. That I decided, and the very weekend I went and bought my very first brand spanking new car.
So, friends, be prepared.
