Very little work to do tonight. And I'm €500 richer. And I'm off on the drink tomorrow before the Easter break :D
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Annabel gets here at about 9 then we are heading to the pub!

If she gets here that is... considering her last text was "Oooops didn't realize it was last call!! I guess I better go!" only cause I asked her what time she was boarding :lol:

I know, I never thought I'd pick it up perfectly first time. I really enjoy manoeuvres, my instructor said pretty much everyone else dreads them. I like precision. :D

I get no practice with parallel parking so id probably be worse than the standard I was when I passed my test. Around my nans area in Southend I have no choice but to do it. I often am sitting a bit of a way out from the curb but it helps me getting back out of the space when I am finished visiting or whatever.

One of my best mates started a job in the NHS today working alongside the ex-editor of the (now defunct) website I wrote for until quitting at the end of 2011 and apparently she told him I'd been her best writer. I'm actually quite proud :)

Nice one! You should have seen mine yesterday... I was well out, at an angle and no cars nearby. Just thought "oh, fuck it" and walked off.

I go through phases of being able to park in anything and taking up 4 spaces despite all my efforts. I like to take pride in parking properly.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I did have a couple of goes at handbrake parking when the snow fell. Didn't go according to plan, its not that I have a problem flinging the back end out, its just I don't have the balls to go fast enough to make it look properly good because if I put it out of control in the car park at work I am fucked.



My poor Micra gets some fucking stick.
