Watch out world!! I'm on the road!

So this week has been an exciting week for me, mainly due to one thing... I HAVE FINALLY PASSED MY DRIVING TEST
This was test number 3 for me and I was so nervous I honestly couldn't stop shaking. I'm really surprised I passed my test what with me stalling once, being in the wrong lane for a roundabout and trying a couple of times to pull away in 2nd or 3rd gear, in fact when the examiner said I'd passed my reaction was "You are kidding right?!"

Anyway now I have passed my test I now need to decide whether to spend some of my savings (which I am currently saving for the money for my postgraduate course) to buy a car myself a car and make a use of my new found freedom or to wait and save. I know that I'm hating having to get up early and get the bus to work now I know I can drive.

I guess I wish a new car and insurance wasn't so bloody expensive so I can justify dipping into a bit of my savings but at the moment I'll be eating into a large chunk of it... I guess at the moment I'll just have to bite the bullet and get back in the queue for the bus stop.


  1. yay, congrats on passing your test,
    i was as happy as you and couldn't believe it either :)

    i really want a car also, why is saving up always take so long!

  2. Well done to you too Charlotte. Sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

    I've just got my car and I'm loving driving. Is nerve wracking at first but I dunno why I didn't do it before x
