So today's blog stems off a driving experience last weekend.
I'm learning to drive and trying to get some practise in when ever I can now when I'm not having lessons. One thing has come to light more and more since I restarted my lessons is how nice most other drivers can be when they can see your a learner. It's only recently I've had a chance to practise away from lessons and last weekend despite have L plates both sides of the car I encountered my first set of angry drivers.
After a great hour driving round I pulled up at a roundabout and did everything I needed to get ready to go again and luck just wasn't on my side and the car stalled again and again. Whilst I tried quickly every time to get going it took longer than I wanted. I have to say thank you to the drivers that waited nicely for me to get going again but to the person who sat their repeatedly sounding their horn next time maybe think there maybe a reason the traffic isn't moving as fast as you want. Everyone who drives has been through the stage of being a Learner and knows how upsetting it can be when people act like that. It also happened again a few minutes later and I cant thank the traffic attendant who was controlling the road closure I had to get round who came and held the traffic where the stalling issue happened again. Luckily the lady at the front of the queue gave me a massive thumbs up when I managed to get round the corner which made me feel a lot better. Small gestures of encouragement really do go such a long way.
So far I've seen people give me some extra space and not get too near to the car and also happy to wait when they see you out. Both from being in the driving instructors car to out practising it doesn't harm just to keep an extra eye out for a learner.
My poor brain has so much stuff to remember at the moment so any help is gladly taken. Not everyone takes to it the same way and are as confident as others and I know personally I'm determined to get to the end point and pass.
My point of this blog is to ask to give all Learners a chance. It doesn't take anything to give them extra time in trying to do what they are doing trust me from the other side all learners will be and are very thankful.
Thanks for having a read and have a great weekend

Welcome to a blog that's been in the making since the start of the year.
Way back in Jan I made the decision to look for something fitness related that I would stick too. I never in a million years dreamt that I would find something I loved from the first lesson and and am now going to twice a week.
I came across an advert on Facebook for Jump Fit classes being held at my local trampoline park here in Enfield and went along to try the class out. I've always backed away from anything I found intimidating especially when it's come to fitness but found soon into the class that I was really enjoying it and bought a pass for more classes at the end.
Everyone I've met from these classes has been so welcoming. We all work together to help each other and each class is always a great laugh as well.
I stayed with the Tuesday Jump Fit classes which have been great for building up my fitness again each week I try and push a bit harder. This class was great to start off being low impact it is for all levels of fitness. For the first few weeks after the aches and complaints from my body I thought this would have put me off but it didn't and during April I decided to give Bounce Box a go on a Thursday.
Bounce Box was a completely different level to try and its been great to have a variation of the classes. I've found myself booking a few weeks in advance to make sure I stick to this.
On a personal level I've had a lot of things thrown at me and have come to look at these classes as more than just fitness as they have really helped me get out of my head when I've needed to.
I got back from holiday this week and despite everything that could have been thrown at me in the 48 hours I was back I did question if an early night was the best thing but made myself go to Bounce Box and actually felt so much better after.
It takes a lot to find something you enjoy and actually want to stick to especially when it comes to fitness. I have to say a massive thank you to Akilé and also Vicky for helping us push that little bit further each week. Its great when you see the results, if you haven't checked it out pop over to Jump In Enfield and book in for a session I promise you it's totally worth it.
Also check out the rest of what the Fitness Vibe team have on offer over on the Fitness Vibe Website .
Thanks for reading, what have you been up to fitness wise this year drop a comment below.
Have a great week

Welcome to an exciting part of the Tenerife travel blogs. Despite the weather yesterday we had an incredible afternoon out on the Maxicat boats watching the Dolphins and whales.
We were picked up from the resort and taken down to the harbour where we boarded our boat for the afternoon. We’d chosen the 3 hour trip but there is also a 5 hour trip available as well.
After Sailing for a while we were very lucky to get our first look at I’d say a good 12 dolphins swimming very close to the boat.
Very soon after we came across a small pod of whales. It was so incredible to be able to see them so close up and see so many of them. You always hope you’ll see these incredible animals up close on the boats and this was totally worth a day trip to do.
Even though it was chilly yesterday I have to give credit to all those who swam from the boat when we stopped later in the trip. It didn’t look warm at all.
I would completely recommend booking on the MaxiCat all the staff were lovely and the food provided during the trip were also very good.
There are many places to buy tickets around the resorts and out and about.
They do take official pictures when you board the boat which can be purchased as well.
This was a lot of fun and will definitely book again when I come back over.
Thanks for reading
