Happy new year

Better late than never. Wishing you a happy new year. May 2016 brings you success and happiness in all your undertakings.

I have not been writing but all is well. Everyday passes fast with the same routine. Boys are enjoying school and activities. Seb changed job since a few months. I am still the same. Except I have a new car.

With the change of job, Seb no longer had his company car. Living in a small village with limited public transport service, we both have to have a car each. I always wanted a small car. We have the VW Touran and Seb let me choose the car I want. I had been eyeing on Citroen DS3. When A2 told me he could buckle his seat belt by himself, I was thrilled. DS3 comes only with 3 doors and it would be troublesome for me if I had to help the boys buckle up each time.

We visited the second hand Citroen dealer and I found my car on the spot. An automatic gear, dark color with contrasting roof, 5 months old with 1600km. It was 20% cheaper than a new one. The day we went to get my 'new' car, we stopped for coffee break. I took the opportunity to take a picture.

Au revoir to the BMW 528 and bienvenue to DS3. I am satisfied with my small compact car. The boys like it too but miss the paranomic roof of the BMW. But well, we can't always have the best of both worlds.
