From Girl Friday Steph: 
So yesterday I passed my diving test on the second attempt. I passed with four minors, which is better than my one serious fault and 10 minors in the last test. However, I still feel that I should have passed before my 20-year-old sister who since passing in October has had 2 minor collisions and a parking ticket even though she took three years to actually take it compared to under a year for me.
In my first test the instructor said i was to ditsy and in another world, but I blame the man on the Brook Street roundabout who kindly sounded his horn for me not passing. This time I think I had my most relaxed drive ever. My examiner and I strangely had something in common the fact his daughter went to Italia Conti college which is the college I attend. We were talking about all that during my test. Also coincidentally he also took my sisters test. There are now two Kilians on the road... BEWARE! Haha!
This morning I drove myself to the station and I got half way only to realise I left my passing certificate at home, then parking was a nightmare. I had to choose to either parallel park close to the station or perform an 'up the kerb' jobby further away. Well I tried the parallel park and failed spectacularly, so it was a nice long walk for me this morning. Good job I didn't get that manoeuvre in my test!
