New traffic hazards in Edinburgh
Well, my son passed his driving test today (at the third attempt). He hadn't shown any special desire to learn but a year or so back we insisted, as ferrying around a drummer with all his gear is a bit more of a chore than giving lifts to a guitarist or saxophonist. And eventually...he can drive. He drove me home from work and it wasn't at all nerve-wracking.
The building I work in is visible just behind Ruairidh's head in the picture. Also in the neighbourhood is a new branch (the first in Scotland) of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, which is currently their second-busiest branch in the world. Certainly the queues for the drive-through have made the traffic news most nights (tailing back around a mile at worst!) So it was hardly surprising that R decided to take his girlfriend for a celebratory doughnut immediately after passing.
Anyway, there we are: a family of drivers (at least, when the DVLA gets around to my relicensing which is "in a queue"). Congratulations, son.
