Say 'Hello'...

...to Duckie.

That is what my Sister has named my car because it is a sort of cross between Powder Blue and a pale Duck-egg Blue.

The name I can live with as it is quite cute but I'm not so sure about the Bow-tie that she says the car should have - just like 'Duckie' (Dr Mallard) in the TV series NCIS - I do wonder about her sometimes LOL.

Anyhoo, here is Duckie...
 ...all shiny and new. For a small car...
 ...it isn't so small. This is the 'Play' model rather than the basic 'Expression'...
...and there might not be loads of Bells & Whistles (buttons & gadgets), it has everything that I need to get me from A to B.
I'm not a lover of the big chunky keyrings that the dealerships provide so I got myself this...
 ...I think it says it all.
The interior is quite basic but not sparse...
 ...I mean, it even comes with a 'Smartphone' holder...
 ...(shame I don't have a smartphone) and there is plenty of legroom in the front...
...without stealing it from anyone sitting in the back.

So 'Duckie' now lives with me and has been introduced to some of my friends. I have been out and about a few times - mainly to get the 'feel' of the car because it is a while since I drove anything other than an Estate style vehicle. I'm getting to know where everything is but yet again, I have a car where it needs Einstein to work out how to change the time on the clock. At the moment, it shows 20:00 in the 'am' and 08:00 in the 'pm' - other than that the time is right LOL. Still, I have a month to work things out ready for the clocks going back at the end of October. I have followed the manual, step-by-step, but pressing the buttons stated changes the mileage display - NOT the clock.

There you have it; that's 'Duckie'....................................................................

Well, and I don't know if it's right to say this if Duckie is male, but oooooohhhhh so cute 😊. I'm sure you'll be very happy together and once your confidence has grown, and well you might as well wait till the clocks change. I'm sure Duckie will be showing you the right time of day. Wishing you happy and safe journeys xxx
