It’s been an entire year since I passed my driving test (first time, I might add), and I can’t begin to explain how much of a difference having a licence and owning a car has made to my life.

Today, to celebrate exactly a year to the date that I got my pink licence, I’ve compiled a list of 25 things that I’ve learned in my first year of driving and owning a car…

My family laughed at me when I asked for a season of Frasier on DVD for Christmas one year. I remember them saying I was an old woman, and that next I’d be asking for the box set of Last Of The Summer Wine.

But I loved Fraiser. I still do. And if that makes me an old woman, then so be it.

It fits in with the rest of my lifestyle which includes knitting, constantly carrying around a hot water bottle with me, and staying in on Friday night.

When I first started writing a blog, I didn’t actually realise I was writing a blog. I was an avid user of Piczo at the time, and I mainly used my site to showcase my “graphic design” skills.

But then one day I added a text box to the home page of my Piczo site, typed out the date, and then proceeded to write about what I had got up to that particular day. In fact I probably wrote about going to see The Dark Knight at the cinema because, let’s face it, that’s all I did in the summer of 2008. This was my very first blog post, even if I didn’t know it at the time.
