I tried something new today and met up with the lovely Louise from Princess Prudence Diaries at the Festival of Motoring in Coventry. It's the first time I've ever met another blogger and we got on famously, as did our men, Jon and Pete. They only live a 40 minute drive up the M6 in Coventry but with Jon and I's legendary inability to follow a map the journey took us 90 minutes instead.
We had a lovely few hours wandering around admiring the vintage motors, quaffing cider and having a giggle. Louise is every bit as down-to-earth and friendly as she comes across in her blog and so enviably tall and glamorous, too. Her cool husband was also a pleasure to meet.
Ebby, our 1970 VW Variant 411 LE, is our daily ride and I love to dress the part when we're out and about. Driving a vintage car generates lots of attention, requests for photos and the opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people. I'm always disapointed when fellow vintage car owners don't make an effort with their outfits so was delighted to find this pair dressed to the nines and having a ball.
