I’ve been rather quiet here because over the last week I have made a concerted effort to study the Belgian Highway Code for the theory part of the driving-licence exam.
I have been intending to do this (on and off, more off than on because in my heart of hearts I am terrified of driving) for about a hundred years. I think everyone who knows me had given up hope I would ever actually do it.
But suddenly I thought – Bugger it, I’ll just do it. So I did.
And I’ve passed! No one is more surprised than I am. So, here’s a picture of me in about four months’ time... (from here). Watch out, Belgium.
