After 30 years, I gave away a Peugeot PGN10. I had to. I foolishly bought this larger bike at age 17, and tried to make it work for 30 years. It got harder as I got older. I was teared up as I gave it to my daughter's friend. I gave away a child, it seemed.
Not even a few months later, someone had the exact same model on FB, and this time in my size. I bought it, and don't regret it single cent.

Glad you kept yours. When your kids are able enough, ride with them on your Novara Buzz. Have your bike age with your kids. And even if you buy a faster, slicker bike, not all rides are meant to go fast. And before you pass on to the next life give it to your child. Tell them the value it meant to you. Make it part of your family and its history.
