I know my kids may one day look for this post so I want to explain a few things first. I was TERRIFIED of being behind the wheel of a car prior to this lesson. Take what you think is terrifying and times it by like.. 1,000,000 !! and that's how petrified I was at just the thought of sitting in the drivers seat.
Today I conquered my fear and drove I for the first time around Masons Lane Reserve, Bacchus Marsh. A long time friend popped in for a cuppa and some lunch before suggesting I just do it.
When I finally got into the drivers seat I was hot and flustered and my palms were so sweaty. I didn't even know how to turn a car on let alone trust myself to drive. Penny showed me how to adjust my mirrors, which pedal was which and how to use my indicators before we even left..
I was a bit of a Nana at first and refused to reverse. Reversing really scared me. I did it though, very slowly but I did it and was so proud of me..
While I was behind the wheel I couldn't believe I was actually driving!
Penny suggested that we go on the road and around to the other side of Masons Lane. I wasn't confident about being on the road but I did it and it was great!
Here is a little map of where my first little drive took place..
I no longer fear driving and look forward to booking in more driving lessons next week!
Thank you so much Penny..
