After this week's spectacular crappiness, I'm planning to go home tomorrow for a few days R&R. I booked Friday and Monday off work for whatever con it is this weekend, but in the end no one wanted to go, so I'm just going to head back to the mother island for a few days in the comfort of my childhood home. My mother is away, of course, on holiday in Crete, so there'll be no heating and no food. But I can turn on the heating and call in at Sainsburys, and all will be well. I will only have my mother's scary Vista PC though, so not much with the internet action. Hopefully I'll be able to dl tonight's CSI before I leave, and get tomorrow's BSG while I'm there.

I've lined up a couple of rental viewings, and one house, for Monday, but I'm not sure whether I'll actually go. It's a very long drive, and I'm really not sure I'm ready for that yet. I'm going to drive home tomorrow, but that's a drive I've done - as a passenger, anyway - a million times before, so I should be okay with that. Hopefully. But all the way over to the new area - it's quite a long way, and unfamiliar roads. So.. I'm not sure. I might cancel, or rather postpone until next week, as I'm off Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, so I can fit plenty of viewings in then, god willing!

For all my nervousness, I love my car :) I've driven to and from work four times now, three of them in rush hour and most of them with at least one passenger, which is odd. Passengers want to talk! The only passengers I had before were my driving instructor, who talked about using my mirrors and things, and the test inspector, who talked about turning left at the roundabout. Now it's all chatter chatter and I'm trying to concentrate on not crashing into moving vehicles. Or stationary ones. Or stationary objects. And so forth. It's quite an adjustment. But my car is great. It's a bit less shiny, because it got snowed on twice, but it's very comfy and spacious. I'm rubbish at parking, but I think it's a skill that - in real life - will take time and practice to develop.
