No sooner said than done – we have a car! Her name is Roxanne and she’s a beautiful red Ford Focus Ghia. We picked her up on Sunday from a used car garage in Tottenham and I am intending to drive to work every day until Christmas to rid myself of driving nerves. Yesterday was my first solo drive and I was terrified but other than a couple of hairy moments I managed OK and even quite enjoyed it at points! Roxanne came with a CD of love songs (nice touch!) and I managed to find a few brilliant CDs in the flat so we now have a nice little car collection; for my first solo drive I listened to Funk Soul Brothers – a CD my brother gave me ten years ago which I still love.
