Our new car was delivered today - a silver Nissan Qashqai - which is unfortunate timing for me because I'm off to London tomorrow.
Perhaps I'm just odd but when I was living in London I used to notice Swiss number plates and think how nice it would be to have one. Not just Swiss number plates either, but specifically those from Geneva with the letters GE. I've no idea why that was, but it does seem strange now looking at them on our own car!
Paul (being a real petrolhead!) thinks a Qashqai is nothing to blog about, but I'm very happy with it, and especially after three years of having to lug heavy bags home from the supermarket almost every day! I can give my two wheeled shopping 'chariot' a well needed rest now! I had a Hyundai Santa Fe before and, again, it was nothing to blog about but it was a lovely car to drive especially for a short person like me, it was a lovely 'fit'. So when we set out to do some test driving a couple of weeks ago (we were very lucky to get the model we wanted, normally there is a waiting list of months) I didn't think I'd find something as nice. The Hyundai dealer is the other side of the lake so that was a bit impractical for servicing. We were on the way to a Seat dealer when we remembered the Nissan dealer is only up the road so we popped in. I didn't expect to be so impressed but it's a lovely thing to drive and it has more extras than I thought was possible to stuff in a car. Deal done! Just in time for winter too because it's absolutely freezing here in Geneva this week!
I hope to have an interesting photo or two to post of London as I'll be meeting up with a man at the weekend and staying in a rather swanky hotel 'a short walk from Harrods'...
