By buying yourself a car. (Or even better, getting your ex boyfriend – who you’re sorting of seeing again because you still love each other – to pay for it because you lost your debit card over christmas.)

I am so in love with this little wonder right now. Apart from the fact that I actually think it’s really pretty for a car, that it’s 1.3 which is the biggest engine I’ve ever had, that it has power steering which is also a novelty for me, that it is old enough to have a TAPE deck I’ll never use and that it’s smooth as silk to drive, it’s really what it MEANS that’s making me jump for joy. It means freedom, independence and visiting my friends round the UK, that’s what it means! And trips to flea markets in other towns and road trips and lots of fun, which is very important.

PS. There WILL be paintings soon!
