Nowt interesting

Posted 17-10-2005 at 21:44 by slinky

Well thought I would do a blog. Nowt much has happened. The driving is good.........too good, as my confidence is very high now, I really must get a grip of my temper though. Ginger pulled a fast one with me on Saturday. He wanted to go to Burnley for some coal and asked me if I was going to drive, so I asked him if it would be quiet, he said "yes course it will". So off we went, nice little drive, until we hit Burnley round-a-bout, OMG I had forgot Burnley was playing at home!!!!!!! the round-a-bout was absolutely choker, and I hate round-a-bouts at the best of times.........I was absolutely turding myself. But I got through it. There were police diverting traffic everywhere!!!!!!!!! it was awful, but I got a great satisfaction out of it, because I managed it. I drive everywhere now, and ginger is getting too used to being chauffeured around I think. He said the other day " You are too used to this car now, you will never pass your test, you have too many bad habits already" lol. I have mastered the smoking and driving malarkey now, which keeps me calm hehe. anyway that's it...............

    well done! I hated roundabouts when learning. There was a double one in Blackburn near Blackburn Brakes I think, they were so close together I never knew which exit belonged to which roundabout.I almost had a panic attack everytime I approached it!!! in a few weeks it'll all be over and you can drive like a normal person then!!! I hated learning to drive I dreaded every lesson! I had the chief examiner when I passed, I grappbed his knee & said 'passed have I, really, are you sure'?!!! Then I jumped out quick before he changed his mind! He must have thought I was nuts.............ok I hear you!!!!

    Slinky.....I really knew I could drive when I ate a Mars Bar driving along the motorway without having to think about it
