► Month nine with our Mini 
► Cooper trim, 5dr 3-cylinder
► City car leaves the city

This month the Mini and I have been outside London’s city limits and all the way down to Pembrokeshire for the annual Pulman family BBQ and beach-walking holiday extravaganza. The Mini was faultless on the trip, but alas I wasn’t so perfect, being chastised more than once during the week by grandmother for speaking at a pitch that was neither too high nor low for her to easily comprehend. Perhaps last month’s reported issues with the Mini’s voice recognition system could be entirely of my own making…
