    Roundabouts suck me in and I keep going round and round about until the gods are gracious enough to spit me out again. Good thing I sold my car this summer.

    Not so sure about round abouts… Welkom has enough of them… but the rest of South Africa enjoys having traffic circles in all of suburbia. An South Africans' reactions to them… to just drive right over them!

    So, you take the P about us calling "traffic circles" "roundabouts", but you happily refer to traffic lights as "robots".Go figure.P.S. Don't ever think that learning to drive in the UK will (in any way) prepare you for driving in SA. Different rules apply. They drive on the other side of the road, for starters.

    Champagne heathen: haha tempting, sometimes they have these teeny tiny circles that I can't see and then I do!6000: er… um… you may have a point there. Ja I m aware that driving in SA is somewhat different, seeing as both sides of the road are considered fair game, as well as the pavement… going backwards is also fairly common!

    Sarah: hehe the poor kid, must be nice to be so safe that a smash and grab could shock you!Paula: arrrgh do you enjoy your driving lessons? I hate them. You are so lucky there are not so many circles in sa though.

    I like that I'm learning fast… and get a kind of thrill when the driving instructor comes into the car with a scared look on his face. LOL. :P You? Besides the circles…?

    Paula I am HATING it. I have my lessons at 7pm after I stumble off the train from work. I am so tired and just want to chill but have to concentrate on driving. Bleeeegh! But everyone says after a while they love driving, so I am hoping that is going to kick in soon!

    You do realise that when I read your bit about having a pus-filled eye, I read "pussy" with it's OTHER pronunciation? I was a bit confused for awhile.I hated driving while I was doing lessons (at least you don't have the K53 method there). It was only after I'd been driving on my own for a few months that I became comfortable and enjoyed it. Now I can hardly remember life pre-driving.

    I have the most awful image of you in my head. Also i just thought of a cool name for mucus and puss mixed together……wait for it…"Pewkuss" (although it would be better if you vomited on your face to add to the mix…)
