Following a 2.5 hour train trip, we arrive at Wigan to have a look at the car we are interested in. The rain sets in again - I had forgotten what mid-winter can be like in a climate that truly has four seasons (like Sydney and unlike Maryborough!)
Bought for the princely sum of 1750 pounds. 2001 Vauxhall Vectra with only 58000 miles on the clock. Obviously doesn't hold a candle to Helen's new car!!
An uneventful trip back into Lonon in the rain - and a test of everyone's patience as we try to navigate through totally unknown areas!!!!
Now we are trying to sort out insurance - gosh, will be so glad when we can get on the road finally!
