Drivin me crazy
we are not procrastinators. well, my husband is not a procrastinator. and we are one. So by default I am not a procrastinator. which leads me back to the fact that we are not procrastinators.
so it beggars belief that we have been here almost a year, driving with our British licenses well aware of the fact that on February 11th our right to do so will come to a swift and sudden end. it seemed so far away. we planned to sort it all out in the summer. quite frankly i was hoping it would all go away and i wouldn’t have to go through the whole rigmarole of doing a written and practical driving test - again!!
i mean honestly, i really think if it was a safety issue we shouldn’t be allowed to drive in other countries at all. why is it ok to drive even for a day on a foreign licence but not ok to do so after I’ve lived here for a year? i can confirm i was waaaay more dangerous in my first few months than i am now at the 1 year stage. just ask the driver that saw me headed towards him on his side of the road after i turned into the road...his heart must’ve churned a fresh batch of blood that day i tell ya!
why can’t they just say “if you’ve driven without penalty / killing someone for a year you qualify for a local license”, and done! i know why - it’s all about the money money money...
so...this is the argument i’ve been having all year with the air . and here i am in the middle of driving lessons preparing for a test on the 29th of Jan. i have to pass that test because there are no buses to wave down like in England. and i can’t casually cycle anywhere. then again, maybe if i failed i’d get a driver and be chauffeur driven everywhere...in my Mini Cooper 😜😂. that’d be a sight to behold. but wouldn’t that be great - a chauffeur. he could run errands for me too. he could drop and pick up the kids from school and pick up the groceries, thus ensuring I stay on budget & providing me with my delivery service. sheesh, the more i think about this, the better this idea is sounding! he could double up as a butler. what a deal! kola would certainly appreciate not having the regular “pick up bread” text as he’s driving home, so i’m sure he’d buy into the idea. i’m onto a winner here guys! next stop, call bravo cos real housewives of Rhode Island is on! we’ll have to buy a new car though cos you can’t have a chauffeur in a mini. Range Rover it is then - hey, if it's good enough for the duchess....
i better start looking for deals cos like i said i’m not a procrastinator.
