No More L-Plates, Ever!

Peter passed his driving test today. He didn't have quite the mystical or exciting experience that I did, but then he's a much more confident driver than I am.

I had to laugh, though, when he came home from a lesson last Friday and said "Wow, Skibbereen really is a total maze." That's what I've been saying for the last six months.

We're both thrilled and relieved that we'll never have to go through the Irish driving test again.
We pretty much spent the day in the car (to Skib, then to Cork City to get his license, and then home), so any great plans I had to write a charming and witty post have gone out the window. Regular blogging service will resume shortly.

Congratulations to Peter for a job well done! I am sure it wasn't easy as it is not here in the Netherlands.

re your comment @ RC- time to take a trip to Belfast; our very own shiny ikea opened just before Christmas. I'm soo happy about that!

Shane - we sure are!

Noelle - Thanks!

WUASTC - Cheers. As you know, it's a huge relief.

Kaycie - Peter thanks you. :)

Laurie - Well, not exactly. I had a second provisional, which meant I could drive alone (although the law on that could be changing in July). Peter has a valid US license and had a first provisional/learner's permit. But now we are both 100% Irish-driving certified. Whooohoooo.

Babaloo - It was a beautiful day alright. Just as well, with all the driving we had to do.

SI - I think in the Netherlands, you should get licenses for biking riding, since that seems to be more prevalent. :)

Anonymous - Thanks for the tip! I had no idea there was an Ikea on Belfast. Might have to check that out the next time I'm up Dublin way.
