It feel as if since childhood I have been mocked.
And it is embarrassing.
My mother was able to achieve this , my husband but not me.
I failed my cycling proficiency test !!
Now I can't drive either but I am the most helpful passenger out , I failed my driving test counts and then has a sudden attack of amnesia. My driving lessons didn't go that well either I remember one lesson .
"I am taking this car to swap it for a new one tommorow it has never had a scratch on it "
Crunch , squeal , rattle , pop.
As a car takes the front off the the now no so perfect learner car I was in.
( it wasn't my fault )
"Oooh I said "
"*****" said the instructor.
Everyone was ok.
But I suspected the transport gods were against me rolling their dice and gambling with my sanity, I tried again and this time when travelling down a windy , tiny pretty lane one of the wheel hit the kerb.
Pop , hiss .
Get out the car and stare at a flat.
Then I had to change the flat.
So in conclusion I never learnt to drive but I can change a flat tyre!
So it's not the failure of my driving tests and lessons that sits deep in my soul, it's the fact I never passed my cycling proficiency.
What Olympic dreams could have been mine for the want of a badge.
Awwh sigh .
I don't suppose I can take my cycling profiency age 41 ?
