I turned 17 in October and have been having lessons since then, and the other day my instructor said that I was ready to put in for my driving test, unfortunately the soonest space I could get is in mid july, yep. Anyway, my dad said that after I got really good GCSE results last year he would give me £2000 for a car, which I think is really generous. There was a Blackbushe car auction today and my dad said he'd go, but mainly to have a look, and wasn't promising anything, next thing I know I receive an email with a picture and find out he'd actually bought me a car! It's a 2005 Nissan Micra with a good mileage and I've absolutely fallen in love with it! It's the car I've wanted for ages and it's surprisingly really spacious inside and I can't wait to pass my test.
There was a little bit of a shenanigan when I got home though; my dad being all daddish put the keys in the ignition all ready for me to get in when I arrived home from college so I could have a play with the car, and didn't realise the car had an auto-lock function. To cut a long story short he had to pay a locksmith like £115 to come over and basically break into my car for me which was totally weird so congrats to my father for reaching a new level of brilliant, but most of all, welcome to the family little Micra, I hope we have many adventures together! love amy x
