Good news came Bill’s way today. This afternoon he got an offer for a full time position at WestWayne, and he accepted. From 15th March he will be Associate Creative Director….whoo hoo!! His take home freelance pay was great, but it’s very reassuring for him to be a permanent employee with the extra security and benefits that entails.
Well done hubby, I’m so very proud of you.
So, this evening when he got home Bill made the call to the Mazda dealership and arranged to go back tomorrow evening to pick up our new car! *squeal* Once Bill had test driven the Mazda 3 yesterday there was no turning back really, he was totally smitten.
Bill is pumped and can’t wait to drive a sexy “winning blue” Mazda 3s Touring (sporty four door hatchback) home. He’ll be getting that honour because I think I’m going to have to spend a little while driving around and around our neighbourhood getting used to the gear stick being on the right before I drive it anywhere properly! This could be very wise as I was a complete spanner last night when I tried to drive around the dealership parking lot! Oops. (Though, it didn’t really help that as I was trying to concentrate I think I was experiencing feeling my first Braxton Hicks contractions, very distracting.) I’m looking forward to getting over that though and being able to get out and about properly.
Today, I spent the day on the phone and internet trying to get some insurance quotes. I think I did pretty well as the estimate we’re going to go with is actually about a hundred dollars less than what we currently pay for just the truck. Go me. I’m now just hoping that when I go through and complete the transaction tomorrow once I have the VIN number I need that the premium doesn’t suddenly mysteriously jump.
