The Weekend Blog | I passed!
17th September 2016
I kind of took an unplanned break from blogging for a few weeks, and although it wasn’t planned I realised it’s exactly what I needed.
But I’m back, and I’ve got good news.
On Monday I passed my driving test!
I mentioned that my test was in September but I wanted to keep the date a secret. I mean, I did end up telling most of the people I work with when I’d had a few too many beers last week, but it was kept a a secret from most people.
I was so nervous and I’d pretty much excepted that I was going to fail. I just didn’t feel ready, and so many people had told me that they had failed first time around.
And even during the test I was convinced I had failed. So I was pretty shocked when the examiner said I’d passed! And he said it so casually that it took a while for it to sink in.
I’ll actually be sharing a post on my journey of learning to drive on the blog next week because it’s certainly been an interesting one.
So now I’m on the look out for a car. I’m so excited about the freedom that owning a car will bring, but I’m not looking forward to the cost of insurance. It’s absolutely ridiculous!
I only have an automatic license, for medical reasons, and finding an automatic car within my budget is proving harder than I expected. We’ve even found that some car dealerships will advertise a manual car as an automatic, which really confuses matters.
I’ll let you know when I’ve found one. I’m desperate because I want a trip to Ikea!
Have a great weekend!
