If you work hard, you should play hard right?

I’m just trying to justify what I’ve done.

Betty is definitely on her last legs. And as much as I want to keep her, it’s definitely not financially viable for me to keep her and buy a new car. So I’ve put down a deposit (inclusive of Betty) for a new car.

And why am I justifying this? Because it’s a brand new BMW 320SE convertible. Being delivered in September. And it’s going to cost me a fortune!

I knew I wanted a convertible when I was looking. Mainly because I’m at an age where if once I get married, I’ll need a car that’s a bit more family orientated right? And then as I get older, I’ll need a car that suits the needs of me and my family. And when I get old(er), I don’t want to be one of those old people who drive convertibles thinking they’re cool when they’re really not (cue Friends reference – season 7, episode 14 where at the the end the old guy with the same car comes along and goes “How cool are we?!”)! So I went along to BMW just to see what was available. Myself – I wanted a lil’ 1 series. Small, compact and within my price range. My brother and cousin on the other hand were living vicariously through me! And so I was steered towards the 3 series. And well, once I sat in one – that was that really!

Why do I need to justify it? Well, what with paying a mortgage, bills, travel and occasionally buying shoes(!), I am going to have to make some lifestyle changes in order to accommodate the car! But like I said – you work hard, you play hard so a few sacrifices will have to be made somewhere. And I’ve started looking for a second part time job!

So the car has been ordered, the deposit has been paid and is now just waiting delivery. But like I told A – the only place the car will be going is up and down my driveway because I’ll be too scared to drive it with the thought that I might damage it!

But oh well – how awesome is it going to look?! And any suggestions for names will be taken on board! 🙂
