Random Weekend Chats From My Car #10

Ok, I admit this wasn’t the weekend just gone, but the one before. But that also doesn’t really matter. Because nothing matters but not in a sad way, just in an “it’s my blog so if I don’t feel like editing for a week I don’t have to” kind of way. You know?

 

Lots of new car stuff! Becuase NEW CAR.

What have you been up to on weekends recently?

 

If you’re in Brisbane, are you interested in me blogging the op shops I go to? I’ve noticed op shops have terrible websites and pretty poor coverage online.

  1. Loved the new car …and the chat! I have my keys for the keyless car around my neck on a lanyard (can’t keep an old teacher down) and then put them in side pocket in my bag. I find the car unlocks and starts with the keys/lanyard in the bag no problemo.

    One time in the very early days of my keyless car, I ignored the sound the car was making to “take the keys with you, this is what I am telling” and actually went into Woolies. When I got back, how lucky was I…no body had stolen my car. I had left it in the state where that could happen. Woah.

    I am an op shop donor not an op shop buyer. I am in the culling stage of life not the acquisition except for new , on special clothes for ME!!

      I do put them in my bag but then it’s just a bit annoying to dig them in and out for the lock and unlock. But I don’t want to leave them in the middle drink pocket with a drink in case a drink leaks on them. I’m sure I’ll find what works best eventually! I don’t tend to buy clothes in op shops, but other stuff. Furniture, a lot of ours has come from op shops.

  2. Every time I see a Kuga (and there are quite a few in the UK) I think of you! Love the new wheels!

      I wondered if there might be a few over there. The few times I’ve googled something about the car they seem to have been UK forums.

  3. Love the new wheels!!! Awesome!

    And yes, I’m a Brisbanite who would love to hear about great op shops!!!

      Ooh yay, I do actually op shop quite a bit for fun on weekends but I’ve rarely blogged about them, not sure why! I guess it had just never occurred to me haha. Or I get distracted by the bargains πŸ™‚

  4. I love how excited you are about the new car! Makes me smile every time I see a post. Please blog your op shop finds- I’d love that!

      I actually need to find everything I scored last weekend cos we had a great run in op shops then.

  5. Yaaaay for those new car feels! As much as I’ve never considered myself materialistic, I love the feeling of a new car and discovering all the things. Enjoy!

      So many more things to discover in this car vs my old one! I haven’t even looked into the fuel preference eco settings (or something like that).

  6. Absolutely yes re the op shops. My daughter works behind the scenes for Neighbours Aid – who have a number of them up here on the Sunny Coast – & I think one in Brissy. They don’t get nearly the coverage they should.

      Oh Neighbours Aid is where I bought a new bag last weekend πŸ™‚ Great little cluster of op shops in that area.

  7. Congrats on the new red car! I think it matches the current colour on my fingernails! lol Love it! #TeamLovinLife
