Oh Goodie...

I pick up my rental car today.

As my job requires a lot of driving the company has agreed that I can put down the cost of a car rental on my expenses claim form. Which is nice. So between 4-5pm today I will be picking up a nice shiny Mercedes A-Class from Tower Bridge (yes.. that bridge James Bond walks into) to drive home till saturday.

However it's a manual drive. This could be entertaining/frustrating.

Its not that I think I can't drive it, its just I know I haven't driven a manual gear car in well over a year, and now I have to drive one out of London during the start of rush hour. See why I'm a little nervous?

I would have prefered to get in as close as posible to 4pm, but that probably won't happen. You see I get to interview a few kids at my old junior school today - and the interviews start at 2pm. At best I'll have 45mins to make it into central london from the school... unlikely.

So today could be high on the stressometer.
