    3 I think it would be a rather uncomfortable squeeze to have a 'normal' car with 3 kids even without the carseat/booster issues :o

    Thats a point, when/if I learn to drive I'll have to get a whole new seat, I don't think Toby's current one will fit in the back!

    I keep trying to persuade OH to let me sell my car and learn to drive an automatic, but he thinks I should drive a manual. I'm not keen though.
    why wouldn't toby's seat fit it?
    You've had lessons before haven't you? did you find the clutch particulary hard? I love driving an auto but I like that I'm not limited to just them IYSWIM :)

    OH did say when we got it though, that just because we have 7 seats, I DO NOT need to fill them. (This was a year before V was on her way :D) I only need a set of twins now to fill it.

    I KNEW you were broody :T


    ;)



    Kids over 1m 35cm don't offically need a booster seat.

    Ring them up and ask roughly what would they offer px for yours that way you can out the phone down and think about it without being pressured. Just tell them you are interested in one of the cars on the forecourt but don't tell them which one so they can't identify you if you go to look at it.

    Do you think the colour will show dirt easily though?

    Glam have you looked at the chicco one on kiddicare? I posted a link for MM last night its about £60 inc footmuff n rain cover and you can use quidco x

    No I didn't but I see you said a lot of people go for the M&P ARia which is teh 2nd hand one that we have so I guess I should be more MSE and just clean it instead of buying new!

    I doubt I'll use it much as I tend to use the sling anyway.

    Where does the time go? :think:
  • Not speaking to my mum (can I join your club Beenie :p) She's a fool, asked me for my £30 of argos vouchers, I obviously said No! And she went in a huff and said im tight, I WAS LIKE WHAT YOU TOOK OUT A STORE CARD IN MY NAME AND I HAD TO PAY OFF THE DEBT WHICH YOU HAVENT EVEN GIVEN ME A FIVER TOWARDS AND IM THE TIGHT ONE!?!

    sounds like something my mothers done many many times x
    :)Still searching .....:)

    tbh and FWIW Elle I dont think a 3dr is that much hassle, for me it was more the factor of wanting another baby that pushed us into getting a 5dr even that said my friend has a 3dr beetle and does fine with her 2 girls

    What ya saying? That you know I don't clean my car regularly?! ;):p :rotfl: (which I don't.. can't remember the last time it went through the car wash - was going to do it on the way to the garage! ;)).

    Will phone them when I get back in later. Suppose they need to see it in daylight anyway so I haven't got time to go this afternoon now :o

    Don't suppose you can make Boogie Babies at half one? I hadn't asked before cos I assumed DH would be at work with the car.. :(
