On the day that MacUser closed, I had just bought a new car. Don’t events time themselves perfectly? In case you are interested, it is a Peugeot 3008 Allure-spec 2.0 diesel ‘crossover’, which replaced an essentially identical car which was just coming up to 4 years of age.
The following day, I went to pick up our (younger) daughter and her two children. On the drive back to our house with them, the delightfully precocious Aria, aged 2 years, thanked me very much for buying her a new car.
The next time she fancies spending £26,000 of my money, I hope I get as much pleasure from it as I am now getting from her new car.
