Saying Goodbye and my New Car

Ok, so this weekend has been a rollercoaster of emotions for me.
I am a really emotional person generally, and I wear my heart on my sleeve all the time – which sometimes I think is not a great thing, as I end up getting hurt super easily – oops – slightly digressing there!
I was quite late to the driving game (for various reasons, money being one of them) but when I did pass my driving test, I bought my car outright.
I was super proud of myself for saving up and being able to buy a car myself, with no financial help from anyone. It may have only been a little Ford Fiesta, but she was my Ford Fiesta – all mine!
But this weekend, we said goodbye. After 9 years of driving my little Fiesta, I knew it was time to say goodbye, and get a new little car, something that was more modern, with fewer miles on the clock and would be more economical for me.
My boyfriend and I had been ‘car shopping’ for a few weekends now, and I spotted a car that I fell in love with and was a really good price. I took it for a test drive, and that was it – I knew it was the perfect car for me.

Ok, so before I tell you (or show you what car I got) – I just need to let you all know that I am not a person who is bothered by having ‘big, expensive’ things in my life.

So, here is my new baby – she is a Ford KA – which I know to a lot of people is not anything to get excited about (please see my above comment)

I totally love my new car – it feels super easy to drive and I am so in love with the colour.

But saying goodbye to my old car was really hard – I may have had a few tears – I don’t know – am I being totally stupid to be emotional about a car?!? My old car meant a lot to me, not just as a car, but as a way of being independent financially and also as a person – not having to rely on others to take me places etc. – my car gave me the freedom I needed if that makes any sense at all.

My old car has gone and I now have my amazing new baby – which makes me very excited and very happy.

Does anyone get emotional about their car like me? Let me know in the comments.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong about getting emotional about saying Bye to a car. I felt very sad when I waved off my 205, less so with my 306 as I just didn't like, was glad to see the back of my old Xsara, but when I have to give up my Polo I'm going to cry like a 5 year old with a dropped ice cream!

      Awe thank you Katie – that is a really lovely thing to say. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets emotional about things x
