I passed my car theory test the other week. Hoorah. My un-intentional newly found status of being laid back meant I didn’t actually revise until the night before. It wasn’t until then I panicked slightly because I realised I needed 43 out of 50 to pass, my half-hearted attempt at the mock test resulted in…… Continue reading Theoretically speaking…
Thursday 13th January 2011 I am now located in London. It was the ‘big move’ on Tuesday. I say that in inverted commas, not because I have a bad habit of using my hands to show this, like, all the time, but because it doesn’t feel like it.

A big part of my life is TV, reality TV, The X Factor in fact. I know that sounds really sad but seriously, Aiden got the lowest votes?? Out of Katie? How many times has she been in the bottom two now? I remember once, Simon Cowell kicked someone off the show as they had…… Continue reading Outrage

Nevertheless, Saturday came and I was forced to drive the poor Vauxhall Corsa (the new type, diesel – I like to…… Continue reading Third Time Unlucky
It isn’t until you start to become aware of the roads that you realise there are so many bad drivers out there. I had my second driving lesson in 2 weeks yesterday, and I was taken round this small housing estate. The word ‘quiet’ was used, but being a Saturday, it didn’t apply. I was…… Continue reading Lesson 2…in a while
