    When I was learning to drive, I'd bring a hand towel with me to put on my knees. My hands would sweat so much, the steering wheel would be slipping. It also helped with my nerves because I knew there was something I could control.

    Leaving this here for when you get back I'm really proud of you for going!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    He is absolutely brilliant!!!! I feel so comfortable and I would say I felt normal level anxiety today. I felt comfortable behind the wheel, he explained everything really clearly and was happy to repeat things for me. He made sure I understood things and was ok if things appeared to go over my head. I felt I did really well today and he told me I did really well. He's disagreed with pretty much everything she's told me though, he actually said it sounds like everything she said is a load of . I really enjoyed it! Scary but I enjoyed it!!!

    My mums already commented on the difference in me. He asked me to mark myself out of 10 for how well I'd done. I said 7 and he thought I was being harsh on my self. I did 2 roundabouts, stopping and setting off, didn't stall once, he said my road positioning was good the last time I parked up was spot on. I can't believe I felt comfortable behind the wheel but I really did!!!

    That is so WONDERFUL!!!! I'm so happy you didn't just throw in the towel and say that driving wasn't for you. You're such an inspiration. Well done.

    I'm just doing what I need to do magie. J lives in a small village about 10 miles out of town so I need to be able to drive before I move in with him really, or at least close to driving as there is only 2 buses a day and his parents are nearly 70 and 75 so I can't rely on them. Plus my training courses are in Hull and Beverley, so again, need to be able to drive to get there.

    It makes such a difference the attitude of your driving instructor and that shows today hunni well done
