Yeh and the first few weeks after passing people take advantage of your keen-ness to drive, *******s. Now if anyone asks me for a lift I just tell them to walk

but it's oh so good for getting the bf to always agree with you... especially when it's pouring with rain, those words 'do you want to walk home?' have so much power (and are saving us both a fortune in taxis at unearthly hours)

Just remember after long drives(anything over an hour) youll be totally shattered...just after your test you concentrate so hard and youre still absolutely awful at driving. I drove to leicester uni for an open day the day after I passed my test, as soon as I got home I collapsed and slept for like, 16 hours
You find that becomes easier after a while - about a month after I passed my test I drove up to UEA for my interview with my dad - we shared the driving and I was still pretty knackered (its 3 hours each way). However now I find I don't get tired at all, I drove up to Gloucester from here to see my friend at uni there and did the whole journey on auto-pilot without really having to think about what I was doing. Its only and hour and a half journey but it wasn't really tiring at all.

Don't be bored - use your spare time to make money! The internet provides loads of ways to profit - eBay that stuff you no longer use, bonus-hunt at online casinos, earn money at online reward sites (like my fave site below).

i don't really want to spend all day online (and haven't so far) and i have a job so i'm ok for money.

was gutted today. had originally planned to go to the beach with bf but weather forecast was dreadful (and i could have the car til 4) so when i saw my bf last ngith i said we'd go another time and we both did our own thing today. turned out to be a gorgeous day and would ahve been lovely at the beach :rolleyes:
