Got up early and being a determined sort of gal went out for a drive around the block. Perfect…bit slow but perfect.
Got home thought I’d park car nicely ……..man this is sooooooo scary.
Thank god for extended family……Keith and Josie came to get car out and Gary helps with clearing it all away,
The image I realise does not make clear what happened: I was facing downhill and went to reverse into a respectable car parking place…..but when I took the handbrake off I put my foot on the clutch (yes that’s right the accelerator is not a clutch) and ended up doing a burn out on the lawn, a 360 degree turn narrowly missing the neighbour’s living room and knocking down the rhodo….scary.
post script: driving lesson – went ok in instructor’s car. phew all good.
