I have a job! The trial thingy went well, though what a lot there is to learn! Was disappointed not to be sworn at by the chef, but there’s still time and I’m sure it’ll come *g* First I need some new comfy shoes, though. Uniform is all black, so I’ll even have to learn to look trendy and smart, which can’t be bad. The kitchen smells were lovely…

I also have a new car! I’ll post more about the process of acquiring it–thank God I only have to do it once in a blue moon–but Mango Terrier achieved a perfect score in the terrier stakes, providing me with tons of useful information and encouraging me to snap at the dealers’ heels (and even to land the occasional small bite).

Eternal thanks to Mango Terrier ♥ ♥ ♥

Anyway, it’s a Skoda Fabia Estate (old model) with a 1.9 TDI engine. Very responsive, and tres comfy since it even has heated seats–whoohooo! It’s 3 years old and has 48k miles on the clock, but I’m reliably informed that that’s okay with this sort of engine.

One careful lady owner has owned it, and so it’s beautiful to look at and unmarked. It has a full and immaculate service history etc. Poor thing, to be coming to somebody as chaotic with cars as me… Piglet’s crate now lives in the boot, rather than on the back seat, and since she can no longer stick a paw through the bars and poke me in the back she’s reading more, which is also a good thing. I hope eventually to train her to navigate, while she waits to be old enough to apply for a driving licence.

Here’s one just like it that I made earlier.

The New Piglet Wagon

    Congratulations!! Twice.

    (Did you sneak any food home?)

    Black outfit – very svelte you shall look too!

    Now then – just what sort of gurl are you? No mention of the colour of the new car! I have known countless gurls who have bought cars just because they were the right shade of tartan, or whatever…

    Will it go with Piglet’s coat? Do you need to buy a new handab & shoes that match? What about the lippy?

    These are all Important Questions!

    Well done you – that’s all great news.

    “handab” Gee – its only 6:30 as well and I am only drinking tea.

    “Handbag”, of course…

    Many congratulatons. Looking forward to those pictures of you in fishnet stockings (for Mr Sloman’s benefit of course) 😉

    Merci, mes peepses! *g*

    John — no food yet, but there’s still time…

    Alan — now look, matey. Can you not *see* the colour of my new car in the piccy? Doh… Blokes! What can you do with them? (Don’t answer that.) It does indeed go with Piglet’s coat. In fact, it goes with her Equafleece, which is why I chose the car. I need no new handab, as mes crubeens will be filled with plates, not handabs, and there will be no crubeen left over for smearing lippy on my snout.

    Robin — thank you 🙂 Fishnet stockings, I’m afraid, will be concealed by my extremely fetching black trousers. I promise I’ll be wearing them, though…

    Seriously, great news on both counts.
