It's going to be a....

Right now it is Friday morning, the day after my two test drives. I got the mail that my license is ready to be picked up on Tuesday, my Grandpa went and got it for me on Wednesday. Already on Tuesday we called and made appointments for two test drives, one in a Renault Captur with 120 PS and the other one in the new Honda Jazz/Fit with 130 PS. 

First, driving was no problem at all. I felt much better than in the driving lessons. I had no problem using those new cars, took me about a minute and I was used to them. The Renault came first and it was a good drive. Great car, some minor negative things, but overall a good experience. The Honda Jazz was a bit more novel for me due to the CVT. I'm used to double clutches, so it feel a bit weird at the beginning. 

So, it is going to be the new Honda Jazz/Fit Dynamic with 130 PS. Driving felt a tiny bit better in the Renault, but judging by the bigger picture the Honda has more to offer. More practicability due to the Magic Seats, more stuff in it and at least in Germany Honda has a great reputation for being very reliable. With the 130 PS it is okay to drive and I need to hit the gas a bit more than in the car I drove during my classes. 

There are no used cars around, so thanks to my Grandpa and family I'm going to get a new one. Due to my disability card I get a pretty good discount (I had no idea that car companies offer that) and well, I have the full warranty and everything that comes with it. We told them we need the weekend to talk it all through and on Monday we will finish the contract and by then I need to decide on a colour. My Mum said that if we get a new one, I should pick the colour I want, even if it costs a bit more. 

I'll add a picture and the link to the description of the car on the British Honda site (note sure if the US model the same as in Europe) and I will keep you updated about the delivery/pick up date.

The Honda Jazz is not sold in the US. But it does look very similar to the Honda FIT. They may be the same. Cute car, no matter what.

      I found this old video interesting which gives a good look at the basement library room where Tom is building the bathroom. It really shows just how tight and cramped it is, I feel claustrophobic imagining how many people have to live in this space. 6:06 is where the room begins to be shown, 12:27 shows the spot where the bathroom is being built now. Just imagine how small the room will be with the bathroom there!! I feel that the pantry room (just off of this one) takes up a huge amount of space that could be better used by the kids if it weren't for Andrea's selfish obsession with it as "Mills Market". They could've found more creative ways of storing groceries than using an entire room.

      Are 3 & 4 correct? That would be just a 9 month difference.

      It sounds like #4 was premature, which could explain the 9.8 month age gap. Given all of her first four babies spent time in NICU, it's bizarre to me that she risked a home birth with her fifth child. I'm glad it worked out, but still.

      Where’s my ‘holy shit’ reaction?

      @anjulibai That’s what I thought but it says no. 4 was an induction?

      The first four were all inductions and IIRC all four were preterm to a greater or lesser degree. At one point she said no. five was the first one to go full term.
