So I finally got a bank account and my first pay check. Life is sweet. To repay M's generosity these past few months I decided to splash out and buy her a sweet new ride so she doesn't have to walk to work in the cold, dark, snowy mornings anymore.
I wanted something that would handle the cold and snow well. The road conditions will be icy until March/April and maybe even May in the mountains.
I decided on automatic transmission just to make life easier for her. There are so many hills around here and the city centre can be really stop-start at rush hour.
I splashed the cash and went for the option of upgraded upholstery and bucket-style 'sports' seat for the driver.
I even went as far as speccing some go-faster-stripe type detailing just to make it a bit special and show her how much I appreciate her looking after me since we got here. Nothing's too good for my lady.
I gave it a quick test drive yesterday. It's perfect. Nice and quick and the handling is pretty tight once you get used to it.
I hope she likes it. She seemed excited when I told her that I'd finally been paid and that she'd no longer have to walk everywhere.
I can't wait to see her face when she gets home from work!
