Where would we be in a world without words? Mum to four and wordsmith based in Perth in Oz. Just muttering my musings about this and that. Check out my website www.writeawaywa.com.au

Oh, what to do when your son turns 18 and you want to celebrate in style? My son is already driving on his P plates, but I thought it would be a great idea to let a limo take the strain and drive him and his friends around the northern Perth beach-side suburbs.
I didn't tell him in advance to add to the surprise! So, imagine his shock when the limo pulled up with its jet door and chauffeur. Our dog, Stanley was also very taken with the car. He's a Guide Dog in-training and I'm his boarder. While he was very happy to sit on the red carpet, he didn't go inside.
The interior is just stunning, it makes you feel like a Hollywood star and I wasn't going to let his paws and claws on those luxurious leather seats.
We were driven along the coastal strip down to Trigg, up the West Coast Highway and into Hillary Boat Harbour stopping for photo opportunities along the way.
Our driver Damian was happy to take snaps whenever we wanted to and of course we wanted plenty for posterity. We also experienced massage car seats! Yes, you read that correctly, I didn't even know they existed. This gentle, electric massage experience was amazing and made us feel even more relaxed. Apparently Lavish Limousines is the only limo hire company in Perth which has them.
Inside the vehicle itself, it was like a mini disco with vibrant LED ceiling lights, there was a TV screen with some great videos playing back-to-back. The teenagers were able to Bluetooth up their tunes to hear their favourite vibes over the surround-sound speakers. It was a party atmosphere with a capital P.
We bought a couple of bottles of champagne and drank from fluted glasses which were provided. As some of our guests were under 18, there was also a selection of soft drinks and coke offered to the younger teens.
Behind tinted windows, we couldn't stop grinning from ear-to-ear. It's great to make an impression, we really felt sophisticated as though we were living that millionaire lifestyle.
We loved that the chauffeur, Damian took photographs along the way
Lavish Limousines has a fleet of different sized cars for all those special occasions from birthdays, to school balls, airport collections and weddings, anniversaries and more. I dread to think of the time spent cleaning the fleet inside and out, so they look immaculate.
Our stylish stretch limo, a beautiful Chrysler made us feel as though we were the kings and queens of the road. Now it's back down to earth and riding around on normal wheels, but we have plenty of photos to remind us of our special day.
