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!
