I relax back in my seat and a grin spreads across my face. It is dark outside the window and the light from the dashboard as I press the button to turn on the ignition glows orange into the car. I press the button again and the car starts. The radio comes on and I press the button to change the function to phone to ensure that my phone’s Bluetooth has connected. Seeing that it has I change the function again to CD and the talking book Ben gave me for Christmas, Gone by James Patterson, continues with the story where it left off last night. I fumble for the switch for the lights, still a little unsure of where all my knobs and buttons are, I’ve only had the car for a week! Finding the switch I turn the lights on – I’m looking forward to when my journey to work will be in daylight again. I pull the seatbelt across my body and plug myself in, checking that my handbag is on the floor and that I have deadlocked the doors. All set, into reverse, the screen on the satnav lights up with the video feed from my reversing camera – I giggle to myself, still thrilled with all the gadgets and gizmos my new car has. I reverse out of the drive and begin my journey to work, what has been a chore is now an excitement – for a while anyway!
