Me wife has her first Welsh driving lesson today. She has had a couple back in London – that’s why I say Welsh – but it’s been a while. My guesstimation is that she will be a very natural driver, this is going by her instinctive skill in solo sports such as ice skating, swimming and archery (the girl’s had a go at some exciting games in her time). And her gender based ability to multi-task.
I, on the other hand – I suspect – will be a worse driver. This is my prediction for a number of reasons. Firstly, driving involves thinking about more than one thing at a time like pedals and mirrors and gears and steering, that sounds stressful; secondly I am quite like my Father and he is not famed for his skill behind the wheel (sorry Dad); thirdly, I’m just a bit clumsy. Anyway, I’ve never had a lesson, so who knows, I might take to it like duck t’twater.
We don’t have a television license so I haven’t watched any of the Olympics. I was told the other day (again by a certain Wrexham lad – I see a pattern of lies emerging here) that it was illegal to watch BBCi without a license. Well I’ve done my research, and that’s wrong! It is illegal to watch live TV ont’internet but not catch-up. So I might catch-up some Olympics. To be honest I won’t. I’ve got better things to do with my time, and I’ve got a radio, which I can also watch legally (by watch I mean watch the contraption while listening to it) whoo-hoo-hoooooo!
