Still August

I just drove to Tesco and back (13 mins each way according to my TomTom)! Well done me.

We'll ignore the fact that my left foot (that has to do all the important clutch work) was shaking as I approached the end of my street, just as it used to do in my driving lessons in 2006. Happy memories! Or not.

I only really went out as I need the practice since I'll be driving over to Stevenage on Monday to see my mum and in readiness for Rachel coming to visit me there on Tuesday for a couple of days. That drive is 1 hour 10 and no one wants to mount the M25 without a little rehearsal on quiter, less insane roads, I can tell you that for nothing.
