A Dream Fulfilled

I had the time of my life at the Fire Service Charity Ladies Driving Challenge this morning.  It was fantastic and I got the chance to drive (and reverse) an artic lorry, 2 different fire engines and a coach.  For a long time I've wanted to try my hand at an artic but of course you can't just ask someone for a wee go of their lorry but when I saw the challenge advertised at our local fire station I just couldn't resist it.  It was at a disused airfield not far from home so there was plenty room to have a drive about, ably assisted my some hunky firemen ... not that I was looking really!

Wow Anne, you certainly were brave to take on that artic. Sounds like you had a fabulous day, and some lovely pics to help you remember
