I think I'm gonna have to give up on Galway this week, seeing as I have neither the time or money to go there now. I may end up visiting Dublin for the day, though that said, I may as well save that for Thursday, as I'll be there in the evening anyway. I'll definately have to check out that new bookshop in town, mind. It looks a lot like Borders, in that it it has a cafe as well as the actual bookshop. It's a sobering thought though that if Dublin was the size of London, I'd be living in Dublin now. Actually, around 1/3 of the country would be Dublin if it was anything like the area of London.

I have the most interesting thoughts sometimes. Anyway, for today, I'm off to a mates house though I have to call him first. I need to remember to check as well if any UK car insurers cover Ireland though that said, since Ireland is a holiday location, I shouldn't need to worry though. I do need a provisional licence before taking lessons, mind. I also need to learn how to use the clutch, brake and acellerator properly, but for now I'll have to stay content with the buses and trains. It's not like I will have to travel that far anyway, just Goodmayes and Barking. Ilford needs the bus though...

So, for the time being, the people within Greater London can rest easy as I won't be doing any driving apart from GTA and the odd racing game :P

Well, today is a quite day for me, though I may end up heading to Galway this week, though it's somewhat unlikely, but then again, who knows? Anyway, I intend to apply for a provisional licence and get about 2-3 driving lessions, so I can learn how to move the car properly, seeing as my clutch/accelerator work needs well, working on. I seem to be pushing too lightly on the accelerator before I release the clutch, which is stalling the car. At least I have a idea of how to do night driving, and now, to some extent, reversing. Need to remember to look behind me, mind.

Well, not much to say, except tomorrow is my last day at the castle. I had some fun learning how to drive a tractor, as well as a jeep and car, though my clutchwork needs some brushing up on first. I found it relatively easy, considering the fact I've never driven anything outside of an arcade racing game or the likes of GTA!



That said, I need to learn to look in the mirrors reversing-wise.
