2014 Goals: Ticking off the list

Whilst this year I didn't make any resolutions as such I did have a few goals for the year, some of which I shared in my 2013 round up post. A lot of them were quite general and a tad unmeasurable however a couple of them are very obviously measurable and one of these I have finally achieved!

If you follow me on any form of social media then you will have probably seen my panicky tweets on Tuesday night then my absolute shock and sheer joy on Wednesday morning when I finally passed my driving test. This was my third time attempting the test as I seem to have a bit of a problem with my nerves under pressure but this time I somehow managed to keep my cool and not break down in tears. The weirdest thing for me is that I actually got less minors on both of the tests I failed than the one I passed... it's funny how it works sometimes.

I'd been doing driving lessons for about 10 months so I'm absolutely over the moon that I've passed my test and can now drive whenever I fancy... as soon as I eventually get insured (insurance costs suck). I also seem to have taken a sudden interest in car adverts and my heart flutters whenever I see a Mini Cooper, Fiat 500 or a Nissan Micra - this definitely didn't happen before!

How are you getting on with your goals for this year?


  1. Congratulations! I passed my test last Tuesday after around 9 months of lessons so I know how it feels.
    Mini Coopers are so cute, I keep eyeing them up when I see them.

  2. Yay, congratulations!! Being able to drive gives you so much freedom :)

  3. Congratulations! I passed my test nearly 4 years ago now (can't believe it was so long!) but I still love how easy it is to get around now :) xx

  4. Well done! A lot of people seem to pass on there 3rd time. Most people I know have passed 3 or even 4th time. My mum even passed on her 4th test after getting stuck in a ditch.

  9. Massive congratulations! It took me loads of lessons before I passed my test but I remember the joy and relief when I finally did! xx


It means so much to me that people take the time to comment, and I really appreciate each and every one. I try to reply to all of them but I am pretty forgetful, so if you have a burning question that you would like me to answer please drop me a tweet @colourscarousel or email me!
