Rizzle’s Boxing Day Blast

After a fabulous 2017 in our 1970 Fiat 500L ‘Rizzle’ (including glorious Goodwood and the luscious Lake District), we decided to end the year in style. We seized the Boxing Day and after the usual checks headed out into the chilly sunshine.

We found ourselves re-visiting one of 2017’s outings – Foxton Locks, Leicestershire. It’s only 20 miles from our house and is a beautiful place for a meander along the canal.

It was packed with people trying to walk off the Christmas Day blow out and as usual, Rizzle stole the show. With admiring glances and smiley faces aplenty (just one of the great things about owning one these great little cars).

After a hearty walk and a much-needed hot chocolate, we headed home, accompanied by more invigorating waving and tooting.

Back in his kennel an excitable Rizzle had a quick polish and was lovingly put back to bed. With those big, puppy dog eye lights Rizzle reminded us that he’s not just for Christmas! We’ll try and let him off of the leash any excuse we get.

A happy and healthy New Year to all, here’s to an even more fun packed 2018 – we feel a ‘Suffolk Saunter’ coming on!
