Hello everyone, Ive recieved a few negative comments this week, which although I allowed them to be upgraded from spam (only so I could offer both sides of criticism on my blog) I found quite hard to cope with. So out I went and this week I can cross something off my list!!! WOO HOO. Yesterday I had my assessment lesson with a new driving instructor.

Two hours of painful stalling, bumping curbs and crashing into hedges later, I can now drive to and from my hometown like a normal human being.

I must admit it was really weird at first, I haven’t driven for about 5 years (since before I went to University) and my bad habits shone through as soon as I got into the car. I was shaking violently and panicking so much I’m surprised I managed to put my foot on the accelerator let alone drive it bonnet first into an innocent neighbours hedgerow! (Sorry Jerry!) after the first 20 minutes and with gentle coaxing from my new instructor Wolverine, who by the way oddly is Irish and quite the pussycat, I was driving like a normal human being.

This got me to thinking. I’ve never really thought that I wanted to drive as much as i did when i was in that car yesterday, the feeling of freedom and the sense that I was controllign my own actions was in actual fact quite overwhelming.

…And now the fact that i can cross something off my list is insane and I really feel positive about this next year.

So to all the haters of the blog, and people who think that i’m creating a worthless piece of fluff, stick that in your pipe and smoke it, because I achieved something today, it may be small and insignificant to you but to me it means the world! Peace out Mother Truckers!

Cheers for Reading, L.J x
