This week I got back behind the wheel! It was a fairly risky operation. I needed to do it as its half term now and I couldn’t bear being stuck in all week. I walked Moo round to play school and then me and Thor went for a little drive. I was, putting it mildly, a little nervous to say the least! We still have the courtesy car as well so I was uneasy about where all the buttons were! The first milestone was getting the thing started! cue a telephone call to the husband…
how the hell do you turn this thing on?
Erm, you turn the key
I am.. and its not doing anything!!
Calm down will you, take a breath, sit back and turn the key, you need to calm down, stop stressing!
I am nervous, Just tell me how to start the car!
Turn the key!
You have said that already, I am turning the god damn key and its not working….. oh hold on its started….
what did you do?
I pressed the clutch down
I took an extremely slow drive to Tesco and drove back. It was all rather easy but still rather terrifying! I probably pissed a few other people off but hey, first time back behind the wheel and all I didn’t really care! I am such a nervous driver now, and passenger, in time that will hopefully get better. The accident most definitely has knocked my confidence in driving, but I am so pleased I did it, finally!
