Believe it or not, one of the things I most looked forward to about coming back to Sydney was, despite popular belief, not the food. I know, crazy right? But true. I looked forward to a bunch of other things, and am still looking forward to many things, like meeting my friends’ new baby girls (two friends, two new baby girls, just this week. It’s all happening y’all).
But really, the thing I most looked forward to was getting a car and having
legs wheels again. To go forth wherever I wanted to go. Which mainly, is to go eat.
And today was the day, I woke up like a kid on Christmas morning. 5am and I’m wide awake, hours before I needed to be. But nothing beats excitement to keep you awake, caffeine included. At 9am I headed down to the Mazda dealer and picked him up; my very new buddy and partner in crime, Marvin!
Marvin says hi back. Of course he does.
Anyway, Marvin is a bit of a dream for me… at the decrepit age of 32, to buy my own car with my own money. Well, living in London for 3.5 years is not conducive to saving money, that’s for sure. But ain’t he a gem, a bright green, round gem? I love him to bits and I love his integrated bluetooth even more! We’ll no doubt be partners in crime, seeking out good grub in Sydney together, and I’m so looking forward to it all 😀
So, aside from wheels, another thing I looked forward to about coming home was… tim tams. And mint slices! And here I am, “working” (aka “blogging about Marvin”) and keeping up my sustenance with some tim tams and a value pack of mint slices.
Sure is good to be home 🙂
