It is now a year since I bought my car. My how time flies.
The Toyota Camry Altise is a perfectly good car, but I feel very little pride of ownership. Not such as when I bought my last Audi, now so long ago. I use the Camry occasionally for grocery carting, and very occasionally for a trip, usually because I have a passenger, or because I have to fetch something that won’t fit on a bike. NOT because the weather is not salubrious for biking. Never because of that.
Most of the time it just sits there. I bought it mainly because I hoped I would be using it for picking my daughters up from Perth Airport at some time in the last year and also because I thought they could use it while here. But I have not seen them for a while except via Skype. I do miss their company. Ah well, maybe this year.
Of course, if the Shire had given me personal use of my Shire car, I would not need my own. But I am not quite high enough up the corporate ladder to rate that little perk. I just get to bring it home at the end of the day. (But NOT via Woolworths’ carpark).
On the up side, I have a fleet of vehicles from which to choose.
