I really like driving!
Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd find myself uttering. After the first time I tried to learn many years ago, I thought that this time I'd do it because I have to but that I'd never really enjoy it and it would always stress me out. However, right from my first lesson I've been having such a good time in the car every week and today was no exception. I went on the Parade for the first time, and although previously I'd hated sitting in slow-moving traffic and having to constantly stop and move off, today it was fine and I did well. I also went on the A46 and overtook a lorry! Go me. My instructor said I'm remembering and applying everything from all my lessons really well, and even my reverse round a corner has got slightly better. This afternoon I started reading my "Pass your Driving Theory Test" book and it's all interesting stuff although mostly common sense. In conclusion, all is good...except that I can really see myself wanting to buy a car which is just never going to happen. Oh well - here's to lots of trips out from work in lovely hire cars!
