Part 3 of my post redundancy life.

It’s a very rural walk or should I say drive out into the wilds of the South Downs. Lots of driving down tiny country lanes, lots of massive country houses.
Had a two hour driving test on Friday and passed (76/80) so after one more day of supervision I was let out on my own yesterday. It was slightly terrifying but I managed to find nearly everywhere first time with only a little bit of driving up and down searching! Today was another level, Wednesday is always the busiest day and I thought I would never finish but I finally managed it. The amount of walking is impressive, 26500 steps today.
