Day one of my driving course today.
We do work on a skid pan, but we also drive out on the roads with an instructor, as well as doing more high-speed stuff on a purpose built track. We also do pursuit scenarios.
As always, there's a lot of classroom stuff as well as driving. It's only a refresher for me, because I do on occasion have to do fast response driving or pursuit. It is quite interesting, and fairly fun, so can't ask for more than that, really.
Sherlock was very sweet earlier - he'd obviously been watching for me to get home, and ran down the street when I was parking the bike to ask if we could go and climb spider-web trees.
I think my answer was 'no', in the end. Although I told him he could when he was old enough to make that sort of choice.
Here's what he was talking about:
Spider would be in her element.
John and I had a bit of a talk in the wee small hours. Which is always good. Makes me very happy, when he shares things with me.
