Back Behind The Wheel

You might remember last year I had driving lessons. It was either last year or the year before. I'm not sure to be honest. But yeah I had about four or five driving lessons before I unfortunately had to stop. My instructor had health problems and ultimately had brain surgery and that put an end to his driving instructor days. Or he just never contacted me again.
I never quite saw something like this though
Last year I also tried to get my hands on a motorbike license and failed. Miserably. I had no biking experience and couldn't stay on the bike properly. They say you never forget how to ride a bike but they lie! Well I could ride it and stay on it, just not properly. Maybe I always had bad balance?
I could never do something like that
Now I'm going to go back behind the wheel again properly because in my search for a real job, I've decided I should get my driving license at last, at last, again. My dad and I set up some driving lessons and my first one is actually today. It's been so long since I drove I'm going to be starting up pretty much from the very beginning again. I wasn't too bad last time though and was driving around the town centre by the time I had to finish.

If I survive I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow!

  1. I thought the post was gong to end with a story about how you were learning to ride an elephant. Anyway, that has got to be a photoshop. Unless that is the most sturdy beach ball ever made, the elephant would crush it underneath it's weight...one would think. Though most people tell me not to think.

  3. It's always a good idea to have a driver's licence! Good luck and have fun! But stay away from motorbikes, they're dangerous. There's a reason they're nicknamed "organ donation machines."
