Driving lesson!!!!!!!!!

Posted 12-08-2005 at 13:39 by slinky

Well I had a driving lesson again this morning at 11:45am that turned out to be at 12:20pm. My instructor was late cos he was late for the last person, so it was kind of a knock on effect!!!.
When he turns up late I sit there wondering what I could have possibly done wrong the last time I had a lesson, and think that he has ditched me because I'm really bad. Hehehehe always laughs when i tell him this and I think he does it on purpose now.
Anyway!!! after all the commotion of him being late, he finally turned up and I thought "oh god it's gonna be one of those days".
Actually It wasn't and everything went really well. I drove very well and was very chuffed because, he asked me last week to do reverse round a corner. he taught me some tricks and I did well last week. This week he told me to do it all on my own without him prompting me. So I got myself adjusted then reversed around the corner as he had asked. bearing In mind I have only done this once. He said I had done that very well and asked if I had been practicing with anyone? "nope"!!! he said i would have passed that in my test with flying colours (so obviously you have to get the big head on don't ya).
I did hill starts again and I am very friendly with MR.CLUTCH now, I think we understand each other now!!!! I came to the conclusion that I would just treat the car like i do my hubby........... IT DOES WHAT I SAY!!! not the other way round. Anyway the instructor has said I am doing everything I need to know now and it is just getting used to putting everything together. He said "the one thing is you have very good road sense and I don't often see that in new learners" I was quite honest with him and said "it's not that I have sense, it's just that I'm lucky and am terrified" he laughed!!! but I meant it.
He said i have come on allot quicker than he expected (what he meant by that I don't know!! was it a compliment or not??).
Anyway the lesson ended and I pulled up outside my house. We got nattering about stuff then I got out and went to my mums. We were talking about my lesson and she said "how much does it cost now?" OMG IT CAME TO ME LIKE A SLAP!!! I hadn't paid him for this lesson. With all the chattering we were doing I just got out the car and went. He hadn't said anything either!
I got on the phone to him and he was none the wiser, he said he had that much on his mind (he goes to London on holiday tonight). Anyway he came to mine for the money and we had a good laugh about it. Sometimes he can be sooooo forgetful I often wonder how he remembers to drive. My mate is called Mel like me, and she is learning with the same fella, quite often he turns up at her house for me or vice versa.
Anyway...................that's the blog for today, my Lil' driving experience.
