Just a quickie: this morning I took - and passed - my driving test: hooray!
I know that this sounds ridiculous to any of my overseas (esp. US) readers, but believe me when I say it's fairly tricky, and getting trickier each year. Trust me. There's a reason that (a) many of my friends (smart, professional types) can't drive, (b) my American wife hasn't attempted a British licence, and (c) I've got by for 29 years without one!
At last I'm legally able to drive the 39-week-pregnant Mrs. Drax to hospital next week.
