Readers paying attention will have noticed I have a new car, a Kia Sorento. As many of our readers have largish families, I’m writing a review. Our car came from the very nice people at Kia Essendon. I say very nice people, because even though they didn’t know they would get the sale, they allowed us, no questions asked, to pile the kids into both the Carnival and the Sorento to try them on for size. I will say we actually wanted the Carnival because it has more leg room in the third row, but none were available until at least December. After much deliberation, we decided to settle for the Sorento. After all the two youngest aren’t the tallest children in the world and by the time they are, Miss O 1 will possibly be driving her own car.
The above shot is my car after our drive up to Buangor. The colour is Metal Bronze. I rather liked the Spicy Red version, but availability was again an issue!
We haven’t fallen off the planet. It has just been a VERY hectic three days.
I started my new job on Wednesday, handed over the keys of my old car to Mr O on Thursday and took the four juniors to the hairdresser after work, had a seminar on Friday followed by a lovely dinner with my new co-workers and today Miss O 1 has a job interview (Mrs O resumes taxi duties) followed by a visit to the optometrist for all four junior Oyeniyis in the afternoon. I think we have a couple of long-sighted young ladies so might as well get the whole clan checked! Mr O is picking up laundry duty today as I won’t be home much.
No, Mr O doesn’t have a full licence yet, but one of the teachers at his college has offered to give him driving practice after school! That is a real bonus for us as I have really had trouble finding time lately and the driving test is booked for early next month. Mr O still has to learn parallel parking!
