I like a car to be functional, comfortable, have space for 2 dogs and some holiday luggage and big bags of potting compost plus height for clematis - not all at once necessarily - and also "finds" in TROC shops and flea markets - chests of drawers, rusty plant stands and so on.
25 years ago I was asked to accompany a friend to find a pushchair for her impending baby. We went in their Porsche because it had to fit in the boot under the bonnet. Dreadful car - too low to the road, couldn't see what was coming past the higher cars in front, felt every bump and a b*tch to get out of even when I was younger and fitter. Liked Top Gear years ago but stopped watching when it got really silly and narcissistic and haven't watched any of the new ones.
Cosmos has been delivered to his fate. Pick him up at 5pm which gives e time to finish Possum's new skirt, make lunch then get grubby with my irises and then cleaned up again for fetching and snuggles.
Those kittens are just gorgeous M-U. I hope they like the new chair.
