car stuff

I have diligently not posted about cars so far. And no, it is not because I am the secret owner of a great honking 4WD. It is because they are not of much interest to me as I don't drive. Don't see the need to, never have, probably never will.

The Object of My Affections and I do have a car (well, I suppose he has it, but I do get to ride in it sometimes!) It is a Ford Focus - a fairly small car that is suitable for two people. We are now looking (alright, he is) at getting a new car - a small station wagon affair. Diesel.

I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. And I confess, it has been triggered by having a couple of large dogs to drag about. Makes me realise what a very first world life we lead.

On the upside I am a diligent train user, that has to count for something. And I walk a lot to get from A to B. On my way to the train station each morning as I wait to cross the road, I am always amazed at the fact that 95% of the cars that go past only have one person in them. There is something deeply, deeply wrong about that.
