Drove today

Today was the first time I've driven a car in a long time. I drove to town (Buka) and drove around to various shops there. It's a manual car and I took to it straight away, no stalling, but at first I wondered why the car wasn't moving, and then I realised that I hadn't turned the engine on!! I will be driving in to town on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to do shopping for the kitchen during some meetings/courses over the next 3 weeks. There are a lot of unpredictable pedestrians around, so please pray that I will drive safely and be very alert. Watching for pedestrians today reminded me of the days when I had to watch for kangaroos that might run in front of the car! It's a similar sort of alertness.
