more vroom  
I had my third driving lesson today, and my first bunny hop. Disappointing to have one, but I'm still chuffed that I had none in my first two lessons. I'm going slower than he's used to - the stuff I did today would normally have been done in the second lesson, but I'm happy to keep it slow and remain a little calmer. Roundabouts and right turns at traffic lights today.

Bunny hop? As in that little hop the car makes when your foot slips off the clutch? Don't be worrying about it. I'm two years driving and I did them more after I got my license than I did learning...

Yep, that's der bunny :-)
I wasn't worried about it, just proud that I hadn't done any until I did.

I can still remember the pain of learning to drive vividly although it was aeons ago. Couldn't grasp how one could have arms, feet and eyes all doing different things at once and yet all expectd to synchronise.
Good luck to you.

He has his own set of pedals and mirror, and reaches over to move the steering wheel sometimes. It makes it a lot easier, as I don't have to synchronise everything yet. Though I do keep forgetting he has all that. I'd be a lot calmer about it if I remembered that I don't have to worry about everything.

Thank God we don't have roundabouts here. Parallel parking is bad enouch.

We started the lesson in the business park where I work. I had five roundabouts in a row! But four were small, with only one or two other cars between them. The bigger one was scarier, but at least it wasn't earlier in the day, when there can be enough cars that there's a traffic jam through the roundabout.

When are you going to do your first burnout? :)

Mate, you really need to get on with the driving business! Just think of all the fun places you can drive to! And what about the dream wheels? Hmmmmmmmm?

I am getting on! Look! Driving lessons!

I don't have dream wheels. I'm just not into cars. Power steering would be nice though. And a car that doesn't leak, so we can park it either way around. We discovered that if it's raining heavily and the car is parked with the passenger side to the kerb, a little water gets into the car.

You're welcome!

My wee Yellow Mazda used to collect water in the passenger door - so after a shower, I'd back down the driveway until I got to an incline. Then I'd lean over, open the door and pull the rubber bung out of the bottom and let it drain out. It got to be a habit :)

I remember that Mazda!
