We doo-ed it!

Post: # 210106Post Wombat »

Hey Gang,

I have recently been retrenched and with it went the company car, so we have been using lots of public transport and bugging the hell out of DD & SIL. for our anniversary I got Mrs wombat a new "stationwagon" and she has been having the time of her life with it! :mrgreen:

Depends how much homebrew you had first :lol:

Looks fab, Nev, I love trikes. They're really expensive though! Probably not far off the price of a station wagon.

Woo Hoo! Wonderful! :mrgreen:

And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free

Lovely! We just added a trike to our family as well! Since hubby is a Stay-at-home-daddy, he can go top the park & do errands with our daughter! He really really loves it!
