It's been a stressful day, a bit challenging and a bit fun at the same time. I decided to change my car and found one that I want to buy, but it's not here, it's down south and will have to be brought up here. Washed my car and cleaned it inside so it looks a bit respectable. Had already had a rough quote of what they might give me, but couldn't confirm until they inspected it.
Went into the local dealer. Long long conversations, looking at numbers on the screen, crunching them. Two hours and both parties came to a decision. The bottom line number was one that I had in mind before I went in, they agreed to it, and we had a deal.
My brain was a bit pickled, glad it was over. Now to wait for new car to appear. Probably next week. Phoned my insurance people, told them about new car, will be another £30 to pay to change my policy. Local dealer will organise road tax on new car, and a refund on old car. Will be sad to see this one go, but, I have newer model coming.
Although the old one, not that old on a 61 plate, is a good one, I like to keep ahead of the game. I have not had any major problems with Ford so I'll stick with it. Think I'll go a walk now. The hard work is done, now I can relax and wait.
