I passed my driving test today! I was sure that I had failed it, before I even got out of the test centre car park. Because I was asked to do a reverse park. The first that I missed the car parking space big time. So I did it again, even the second time, I am sure that I was not in it. But I much have been, or she would have said something at the end of the test.
Then not long after leaving the centre, when I got to the first set of traffic lights, what did I do but still the car. At this point I was ready to give up!! I was more then sure that I had already failed it.
Then I had to do a reverse around a corner. Which yes you guessed it, I could not even do that one right. The first time I did it, I hit the kerb. But lucky when I did it again, I got it right.
But lucky my normal driving was not 2 bad. In total I got 10 driving faults. But I passed it, so that’s the main thing.
I booked my practical driving test on-line using the Driving Standards Agency website, but I am not going to say when it is. You will all have to wait and find out. All that I am going to tell you it that it cost £39, so I really hope that I pass it first time. I don’t really have that sort of money to paid.
I am so happy today. At 9:30am in the George Shopping Centre in Grantham. I had my third go at doing the car theory test and your never guess what. I passed it. Third time lucky. I got 34 out of 35 for the multiple-choice section. Meaning that I passed that section, by 4 marks.
I got 58 marks for the hazard perception section. You need 44 to pass it. Meaning that I passed it by 14 marks. So I am one very, very happy person. No only did I pass it, but I pass it with flying colours.
So now at long last I can get my practical driving test booked. I just hope that is does not take me three attempts to pass that as well.
I went to Spalding where the local test centre is. You would not believe just how many one-way streets there is there. Once I get use to all of them, I don’t think that it will be too bad of a place to do my driving test. My driving instructor also took me into the test centre building to show me the room that I would be waiting in just before I do my driving test.
So for the first time in a while, I feel like I am starting to get somewhere again will my driving. There are still some things that I need to work on, but I am getting there.
I had my second go at the theory test. But yes I failed it again. I now starting to get very pissed off indeed. I passed the multiple-choice bit again. I got 34 out of 35. Meaning that I passed that section, by 4 marks. But I failed on the hazard perception bit again. I start to think that I am never going to pass it. With it costing £18 at a time to do it, I am fast starting to run out of money. So lets just hope that it’s third time lucky.
In the morning I spend a while emailing the 34SP.com helpdesk, to ask them if they have any ideas why my new account with them is not working. They worked it out very fast. They said “The account was created on an incorrect IP address, and as such all requests for the domain where resolving to the wrong server.” But not that they have fixed it my website should start working in next 12 hours, but only time will tell.
In the afternoon I went a cycle into Stamford to get a Phono to Phono audio lend, so that I can connect my TV to my Dolby Prologic Surround system.
Then in the evening just like every Saturday evening I was working at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium. It was very busy, just like all Saturday nights are now.
Once I had finished work I went out to get a Pizza with some of the people that I work with.
I was very glad to get back home and into bed. Because it’s been a long day, but a good one.
In the morning I started work on a new website called Sports Sunday, it can be found at sports-sunday.co.uk. So why is it called Sports Sunday ? I hear you ask. It’s called that people a group of people that I work with at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, have a get together to place sports most Sunday’s. So they all it Sports Sunday, I have good name indeed, if you ask me.
Then in the afternoon I sorted out some of my other website’s. Before going to Morrisons to get some food for tonight and the week ahead.
In the evening Matthew come around. It was great to see him again, I have not seen much of him since Sunday. Mainly because he has been doing lots of studying this week and has had a lot going on at home. Which I can’t speak about to much. While he was here we had a good long chat about everything, that has happened this week. And also watched Harry Potter on video. Not my video, I must add because I only get DVD’s.
I think that my chat with Mathew really helped. He went home looking at lot happier then do did when he got here. Try not too worry to much Matthew, things will sort themselves out in the end.
Today I went two cycles the first one was to Stamford and back again. The second one was to Castle Bytham and back again. I did two cycles to get my bike computer to hit the 1000 mile mark. I so happy now. Now by the end of September I am going to aim to have it, up to at least 1,300 miles which should be easy to do.
I spend a number of hours in the back garden. We cut down a very, very big bush. I can’t believe now much better the place looks now it has been taking out. It also means that I am going to have great fun, burning it all, in next number of days.
Once I had done doing the gardening and had time to cool down a bit, I went a cycle to Stamford. I have now done over 980 miles on my cycle computer. So it looks like a will hit the 1000 mile mark, before going to Scotland next week.
Once I got back from Stamford, I made a quick meal, before going to work at the dogs. Lucky they have got all the problems sorted out with the tills. It was a bit of a boring nite, because not mainly people were in. But I know that Wednesday night, will more then make up for it.
When I got back from work I spoke to Matthew on-line for a while before going to bed. I could not believe just now hot my room was. Luckily I got to sleep in the end.
I went a cycle to Langtoft, it’s the first that I have cycled there in my life. But I know that I will be doing the cycle a lot more, from now on. Because it’s the village that Matthew stays in. I did not tell Matthew that I was going to cycle to see him. He looking very happy to see me. When I got there, he was outside washing his car. I was there for about 30 minutes before I had to cycle back home to get ready for work.
Work was not 2 bad. But they did have very big problems with the printer on the till at the bar, meaning that we did not get any orders coming though the printer. So we had to go back to the old way of doing things, in other words, back to writing down things by hand. Things got so bad at one point we even had Richard, one of the people who owns the place, taking drinks down.
I was glad to get back home. I just hope that things get better on Saturday night.
