Learning to drive, or giving up smoking?

PearlyPearly *********Posts: 345 The Mix Regular
Hello,

We are looking for two new diarists for our real life diary pages! Are you learning to drive and want to talk us through your experience? (Probably not a good idea if you're taking a crash course or it will be over very soon!)

I'm also interested in getting a smoker on board to talk us through your battle to quit the fags. Maybe this will help motivate you? (But you have to be honest if you slip up!)

If either of these interest you then please PM me and we can talk about it some more,

Thanks
Julia

    Awwh I wish this had been a year ago when I started learning how to drive - I was shocking. Classic moments include knocking off a car's wingmirror and asking my instrctor on the tenth lesson "so what does the clutch actually do?". He asked me "well when do you use it?" and I replied tearfully "when you tell me to!"

    I'm a good driver now though :blush:

    How weird!

    I'm ringing up to arrange some driving lessons later.

    I've had a break from it all though after failing a few times.

    Not quite sure how many I'm going to need to have as I haven't driven in a few years.

    I had 5 driving lessons and I've quit (for now... maybe)... I hated it.

    I'm learning to drive after a few years of not doing it. Need a car before applying for what I wanna do so whilst I've got the cash, I'm learning again. Got my first lesson again next Tuesday :D Gotta do my Theory again though (which is booked :)) as my certificate has expired and I got 35/35!

    I'm starting to learn to drive next month.

    (I think I'm buying a car sooner than that though, maybe today... I seem to have got things in the wrong order).

    Unfortunately, due to job commitments, I don't really have time to blog about my driving. Sorry!
