OMG! OMG! OMG! Darrell took a phone call yesterday afternoon of such mahoosive import that we are still a little shell shocked! It seems that when he went over to Jade House for our once a month, Saturday takeaway in November (for a No. 23, No. 56, No. 37, a portion of chips and an egg fried rice to share) he was also coerced into buying a £1 charity raffle ticket of which he had long since forgotten. Anyway it transpires that Darrell has only won the first prize …… which happens to be the use of any BMW of our choice for a whole weekend …… how brilliant is that? Darrell was almost apoplectic!
Since neither Darrell and I drive due to our inability to reach either the steering wheel or pedals of a car we have left it to Andy to sort out the minutia of Darrell’s prize as he, being mechanical of mind, knows all about cars of a luxury and tres expensive type nature.
It was Andy who also suggested that we should synchronise the timing of our “win” with one of our Sun £9.50 holidays, so that we could travel in style as well as create a good impression at our holiday park, but first we had to decide upon which model to ask for. Darrell put forward a very robust and measured argument for a BMW M1 Homage ………..
But, having accompanied us many times on our little Sun £9.50 seaside junkets Andy thought it best to opt for one of the larger BMW models in order to accommodate all our usual holiday paraphernalia such as our buckets and spades, wind breaks, surf boards, wetsuits etc. ……….. so eventually we plumped for a Gran Turismo!
But we have already been told that the drinking of Vimto or Ribena is absolutely “verboten” should our car have a white leather interior.
