I passed!

I am now, as Martin put it, legal. Not that I was doing anything illegal before. I have just been on my first solo drive. It was quiet. Very very quiet. My own personal cone of silence.

I liked it.


  1. Congratulations!

    I failed the first time. It was very embarrassing.

  2. Congratulations! Welcome to the world of passing your husband at the front door after one of those looonng days with the words "I'll be back later". That time alone in the car has absolutely saved me on more than one occasion.

  3. Enjoy the serenity, and exploring the back roads. :)

  4. hooray! well done! the only reason i got my license when i was sixteen was that one of my cousins bet me ten dollars that i couldn't...

  5. Well done you!

    Now I am likely the ONLY 32-year-old woman in Melbourne with no licence ...

    oh the first silent drive!
    i remember that!

    and i love kate's comment about passing the husband with "i'll be back later".
    So true!

    congrats on getting another kind of freedom!

  7. Woohoo! Well done! Happy solo driving in peace!

  8. Congratulations Penni. It's easier to escape when you have a car. :) Enjoy the freedom and the joy of jumping in and just going anywhere you damn well please. xxxx

    Congratulations.. and "quiet", you totally brought back memories of my first solo drive too. Great adjective to use.

  10. Thanks everyone!

    Well I did the grocery shop on my own yesterday and apart from the fact that it took me several goes to park, I managed fine, even enjoyed it.

    As Fred's joke tape says:

    What would you do if you saw a Space Man?
    Park in it, dude.
