Hey bunny, look at the moon.
Oh how beautiful, birdie!
Whether they 🐇🕊 talked like that or not , that beautiful full moon last night was quite something. Not because of blood moon (I didn’t see that anyway), but because I saw it whilst driving back from Manchester, as if it were a little celebration to me. Yes, I’m talking about driving.
I’ve never been a confident driver. My husband, on the other hand, is very good, confident, qualified advance driver. I am lucky that I can just sit and relax as he is happy to drive. But the problem is, the more he drives and I rely on him, the less confident I get about driving. Then, things got even worse than expected.
Since our daughter Sabrina was born with severer eye disorder, our life has been attached to a special hospital, which is in Manchester, and we drive up there so often, as some of you’ve known. After her first operation, hospital journey was twice a week, that frequency was just insane. Four hour drive combined with a new born ill child, stopping for hourly medications, feeding and of course baby sickness in a car, was always stressful and exhausting. There were a few occasions that I drove myself those early days and I had a near miss accident. That really put me off and we decided to go together for hospital appointments ever since, so that I can look after her whilst he is concentrating on driving, and that has become our hospital routine. I haven’t driven to Manchester on my own ever since. To be honest, I haven’t driven to outside of Yorkshire myself for a long long time.
So yesterday, I had a go at test driving to Manchester with my long waited new sat nav. Test drive sounds silly or exaggerating, but this was much needed confidence booster. I would like to be more independent, be in control. There are places I want to visit, people I want to meet, workshop I want to attend, and shows I want to exhibit. Wales, Scotland. Down South. It may be a long way to go, but I am taking a little step towards those goals and Moon was shining just like cheering me for the first little step.
