Ditto.  Down the line, except it's August and she's 41.  I know - I was _there_!

Well - 47.  Half-price over-50s car insurance - "because we _know_ a mature 
driver is a safer driver" - two and a half years away.  Oh boy!  Looking 
forward to calling the insurance company in a cracked and wavering voice:  
"It's only a smallish car, but sometimes it goes _ever_ so fast."
