Why Learner Drivers go slow !

Why Learner Drivers go slow !

When was the last time you got “STUCK BEHIND A LEARNER DRIVER” ! How did you deal with it, with patience ? Or did you get agitated ? Unfortunately most people will have answered with the latter.

Lets relate “learning to drive” with “learning a new language” – Will you be fluent and happy to mingle with the locals when you go abroad ? Or will you be nervous and worried about pronouncing something wrong ? Well thats just how a learner driver feels when they are out on the open road. Unlike learning a new language,  where you can practice in private – you have to learn on the open road, which can be scary (A bit like going into a busy city abroad and needing directions but nobody speaks English).

When learning to drive, all the natural mirror use, gears, observations that you take for granted are not in the learner drivers muscle memory, so they have to think about each stage seperatley, you know like, when you try and speak your new language and you have to speak a whole lot slower than the locals.

I hope you’ve found this useful – but please be a little more patient when you are “stuck behind a learner.

Mud, Gravy, rugby and Oscar !

THIS WHY WE SUPPORT SUPERJOSH

Normally after any form of event I am quite quick at getting a blog post online for maximum impact and to stay current. However last Saturday we were involved in something quite special, to the extent it has taken a few days to digest how the day went.

A few of you may remember an auction we did on behalf of the Hoyles centre in Bury just before Christmas, one of the prizes was a sponsorship package at Sedgely Tigers RUFC. A prize I was personally delighted to win, as we had something special planned for it.

Anyway we chose the Tigers home game against Chester which took place in a mud bath last weekend (March 10th), in all honesty the  match, the result, the weather didn’t really matter. As you will know we support the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour charity ( http://www.joshwilson.org.uk/ ) whenever we can and had asked them to find us a family who would like to be our guests on the day……. And that’s where the magic happened.

We are treated to the company of 4-year-old Oscar who suffers from Leukemia and his mum Leann.  It really was remarkable to see such a young brave young boy, carrying on as if it was just another day. To say Oscar took over the day is a slight under exaggeration as Lynette (Mrs GDT) became his chaperone for the day leaving mum to have a bit of a well deserved rest. Me, I just let the two youngsters (Oscar and Mrs GDT) enjoy their day together, which I am sure the photographs will tell you, they had a ball.

Before the game we were treated by the fantastic Sedgley Tigers team to a fantastic meal where Oscar was adamant he was having chicken nuggets (not on the menu), but can you guess what he got ? After which he was shown how to unofficially drink gravy (straight from the boat), not too sure mum was watching at the time, but I am sure when he try’s it at home, we will find out and be in a bit of trouble.

After our guest of honour had taken over the table, conducted the raffle (which we didn’t win, even though Oscar gave his mums ticket a lucky dip in the gravy :>) ) It was playtime for Mrs GDT and Oscar, which included numerous selfies, a couple of facetime calls, we had to use facetime as Oscar didn’t actually want to stand with his mum and myself, preferring the company of Mrs GDT. I’m not too sure how much of the game they watched but it really did not matter, when you see the end of match photo with a rugby team caked in mud with the two bright gleaming SuperJosh hoodies of Oscar and Mrs GDT you will know why.

For this one day we had a sneak preview into the works of The SuperJosh charity, and what they must do on a daily basis for children with serious illnesses etc, proving what an awesome decision it is to support them when we can.

Will we do it again ? We have more involvement throughout the year planned, so just watch this space.

Finally I must give a massive thankyou to :-

Oscar and Leann for giving us a fantastic day.
