    Well, let me bring you all in to the story at the turn of last year.

    I'd been saving diligently for a new car for almost as long as I can remember. I had my heart set on a Range Rover and had spent years ferreting funds away in the hope that, one day, I might actually be able to afford one. Of course, things came up and my saving slowed or even stopped as life 'got in the way', so I was saving for a lot longer than expected.

    Finally, I knew I was close enough to reaching my target that I could start looking for the car I had so dearly wanted. I trawled the internet looking for just the right combination of colour, spec and age. I'd spent the years saving doing my research so I knew exactly what I wanted. Although the combination was rare, I was really pleased that they were available and I knew that shortly, I'd be able to buy one.

    It was at this point that it happened. Slowly but unmistakably, like the rising sun itself, the realisation dawned on me that I couldn't do it.

    To be continued...

    And the winner is.... MystikPiglit! Well done! :D

    Yes, I bought a villa!

    The reason I can't show you any pictures is because I fell so in love with the place that I was almost shaking with excitement when I went to view it (this was my third villa-hunting trip), so all my pictures came out blurry!

    ...That was fun!
