Went to a massive car auction looking for an automatic car so that the missus can drive on her automatic license when she passes the test. Bought one of these for £3.5K , 2010 car with 70,000 miles, bargain. It's a diesel and has one of those flappy paddle automated manual boxes which can be driven in auto mode like an automatic. However it doesn't creep forward like a proper automatic without using the gas pedal.
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children

A sesquicentennial or so ago William Makepeace Thackeray penned what may just be one of the most profound lines on motherhood in his novel Vanity Fair, “Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.” This sentence was my first conscious encounter with theology. Not that in my teenage years I was a fan of 18th century literature. I had come come across it in a comic book given to me by a friend, J. O’Barr’s magnum opus “The Crow”. During during the eponymous main character’s encounter with a mother strung out on heroin, he gazed into her eyes and spoke the same words Thackeray penned so many years ago.
