Thanks for all my replies and mixed messages about my road test today!
s greenhouses reference to red lights and PatB`s mention of sirens and general mayhem in Halifax. Oh ye of little faith!
So, how did it go? let me take you through it…it was raining…persistently. I had been told to meet the examiner by the library…now who has tried to park there with a minibus and a ramp to unload a wheelieperson?..nigh on impossible. We went round and round…the new development on Broad St is coming along nicely…never knew that particular shop was there…oh another cafe…McDonalds looks busy…get the picture?
Well the test time was closing in, so hubby parked a street up from the library and went down to look for the man in question…red carnation?..bunch of roses? No.
2 minutes later they both arrived back at our campervan…suppose I could
ve put the kettle on and made some bacon sarnies.............nah, wheelie wont reach that far down the van! oh forgot.I can`t stand! justified reason for not being the hostess with the mostest, eh?
Right , so out I got…backwards down the ramp…thinking, got to look competent.don`t let the nerves show.
Well, we went all over Halifax town centre…up and down kerbs…backwards sometimes…how the chuff was I supposed to see the kerb edge under that swamping rain mac the examiner had provided me with? We passed Evans…closing down sale…Peacocks…70% off everything…no, had to keep moving…bummer!
We met a car going the wrong way down a one way street…managed to avoid him…another car on a corner with it`s lights on…what is she doing?..huh…mobile phoning…never saw me at all!
Come on, come on, I can hear you all shouting…
Did you pass?
YES I DID!!!
So my new wheelie will be ordered on 1st Feb and be delivered 4-6 weeks after that.
Aren`t I a clever girl…but not a patient one!
