Driving Lesson number 4

I don’t know what the fuck is wrong with me at the moment. Today we still stayed on the same circuit as I still need to work on left turns (which I need to do next week too apparently). The cockpit drill stuff is fine I can master that, and usually I’m fine with setting off but today for some unknown reason I had my foot on the brake instead of the accelerator! Idiot!! So it wasn’t a good start. I then went on fine, until a funny ten mins where I kept fucking the gears up every time I wanted to go into third. I then royally fucked up a right hand turn I don’t even know how it just totally went wrong. 


Think I’m beating myself up a lot because I’m not progressing as fast as I want to…I think I maybe started being too confident in a sense, thinking that I’d be progressing faster than I am but in reality my confidence is knocked down because it’s kinda harder than I expected. I know today I kept clock watching waiting for it to get closer to 11:30 so I could go home. Just wasn’t feeling it today I guess.


I’m praying that next week I will not make any stupid mistakes with gear change etc and master left turns and hopefully right turns so that I can progress onto ‘town roads’ with roundabouts etc. I think I might feel better on the town roads as country roads do still make me nervous. Who knows! 


Next week is my final paid for lesson, then I need to book another ten hours for Β£230. I think worrying about the cost is getting to me, as I don’t have a lot of money and I’ve got my mums and daughters birthdays coming up in June and July which I obviously need to buy presents for, so the money I’m using for driving lessons is kinda like my ‘spare’ money that I usually use for things like presents or if I want to treat myself etc. So I’m not sure how I’m gonna afford both really :/ I’ve got Β£160 in my driving money pot at the moment so I need another Β£70 for another ten hours worth…but then I’ve obviously gotta save up again for further lessons :/ I hate that it’s so expensive 😦 


Time to chill out now and try to keep my eyes open. Later on I might fire up mums laptop that she’s letting me borrow and download my hazard perception practice onto it and just see if it’ll work.
