I passed!! 🎉
« on: May 01, 2018, 10:47:47 AM »
Yay!
I passed my practical driving test this morning.

Just 3 minors and my examiner was really nice.

We were the last ones to leave and the first ones to get back. Haha.

🎉😁🤓🎉

Honestly? For Taco Bell! Haha. But Nottingham is a bit far for tacos only.

If I had the car right now i so would.

But it's not worth driving that way for rush hour when my hubby's off work.

Congrats, Lyonaria!  Great result!  I had 4 minors when I did mine last year, so not quite as good as yours.

Taco Bell would be an amazing celebration!  I wish there was one even remotely close to me!  I also wish I had a car.  :P

We're going to go some other time as traffic will be really bad when the Hub's is off work.

Instead we're getting Five Guys and seeing Infinity War in some really nice seats in Derby. 😁

I don't have a car yet, hubby and I need to decide what we're going to do.

Nice! I wish we had one closer, but Nottingham isn't too far. Haha.

Fantastic!  You really should give yourself a giant treat. 

I passed the test a few years ago and it was not easy then.  And I've heard it's gotten even harder so respect.

Thanks Jimbo!

We're going for Five Guys and Infinity War so it should be a good one. 😁

I just was on a walk with the dogs in this beautiful weather and got some nice photos too.
