The Skoda Family

On Friday Mrs H picked up the new car which is the new model from Skoda called the Roomster. It’s a cross between a standard car and a van, with it being a bit higher at the back. The rear seats can be easily removed for transporting larger items, and this suits our needs perfectly. There is a lot of room inside compared to the Octavia which we just traded in. Mrs H gets to drive the new car and I now get to drive her old one (Skoda Fabia).

The Juniorette is very happy, especially as we managed to incorporate her initials into the registration number of the car. She is also very taken with the type of blue that the car is painted in. I’m just happy that it works. For me a car is a tool and as long as it works and doesn’t break down I am happy.

Today the Juniorette played her first football tournament of the year. I couldn’t attend as I am currently working nights and need to sleep during the day, but Mrs H reports that the Juniorette played very well, but most importantly she had a lot of fun.

Well, just make sure the wheels are screwed on properly.

OOOhhh a nice new car. Does it have that "New Car Smell"? I have only once had a brand new car and that was a 1981 Volvo DL that we bought in December 1980. It was maroon in colour and it's name was Erik the Red Volvo, and it lasted me 21 years!

Just to think how we used to laugh at Skodas many years ago in the UK but they are a totally different breed of car now since VW took them over. Enjoy your new toy!

Funny, I drove past a Skoda dealer yesterday and thought of you. Is the colour of the car in the pic the same colour you bought?

Personally, I like the looks of the Roomster. I hope VW keeps it only in the Skoda range.

Before I moved here, I only knew Skoda as the manufacturer of self-propelled guns and tank chasis .... then I saw them and I thought, they look nice for a product of the former east bloc. It is a cute looking car.

I'm sure the Juniorette could make the men's England football team based on last nights performance against Spain.
