The Weekend Blog | Theory Test

What a week it’s been!

I’ll start with something positive.

I passed my driving theory test today!

I’m so happy as I can now book my practical test, and my instructor says it won’t be long before I’m ready. Surprisingly I did really well on the hazard perception which I thought I was going to fail.

This week I’ve been away down south with work. I went down to learn how the company we merged with recently build their websites.

Honestly, it felt like the longest 5 days of my life, and I couldn’t wait to go home.

It was a bit of a disaster really because the hotel we had been booked into was disgusting. It just wasn’t clean and we didn’t feel safe there. I decided to move us to another, better hotel which was stressful but completely the right decision.

I can’t say I enjoyed the work side of things but going out for meals and to the pub in the evenings was definitely the highlight of the week.

It was lovely to come home yesterday to a big bunch of flowers from Tyrone. I’d really missed him, and it seems like he missed me too.

I’m looking forward to going back to work on Monday and getting back some normality in my life. I think this week has made me realise just how much I love my job.

Thanks for sticking around while I was away, reading my posts and leaving lovely comments. Reading them really cheered me up while I was away.

Have a great weekend!

    Congrats on passing your driving theory test!

    Oh wow, that sucks about the first hotel you guys booked. I’m glad you were able to find another one that was better. I have fun with business trips sometimes, but they do feel kind of long and make me miss having a normal work week. That was really sweet of Tyrone to have flowers waiting for you when you got back!

    I hope you have a good work week!

      Thank you!

      I think because of the nature of the trip (training) it was particularly hard work. I hope I get to go on some more interesting, less stressful trips in the future.

  2. Congratulations on passing the driving test theory! Within time, you’ll be driving on the streets at your own leisure.

    Even though the hotel wasn’t all that great, at least you had the opportunity to go out and explore the good and the bad! Good thing you had the chance to move to a better hotel :).

      Thank you! I’m so excited to pass my practical and get a car. Freedom!!

      Yes, we found some lovely places to eat. That was definitely the highlight of the week.

  3. Congratulations on passing your theory!

    That hotel sounds dodgy, it’s good your company let you move. Coming back to a nice hotel room is one of the tiny perks of training, and is good to ease the stress of it. I’m sorry that the training didn’t quite meet your expectations (from the sound of it) hopefully next time! 🙂

  4. Congrats Holly on passing the theory exam!

    Oh, that first hotel sounds weird. Good you decided to move to another one!
