I advise you all to take extra care on the roads from now on, whether thats in Norway, UK or UAE, as I have finally got my license...
Last week I went home to Norway for a week to have intense driving lessons for four days straight and my test on Thursday. I returned to Norway after two months here in Sheffield, and I hadn't driven at all. Last time I drove was at the end of the summer holidays, so the end of September and my driving test was last Thursday. The whole going home idea was very spontaneous and I was not prepared at all, and I left for Norway with a strong feeling that I would fail the test and the whole trip would be a waste.
I spent my time in Norway at a family friends house, Nina, as my parents are not in Norway and I didn't want to sit in our empty house alone. I had driving lessons every day with up to 3 hours driving, with a ´driving in the dark´ course at night and the test looming closely at the end of the week. It was sunny the whole week, except for the day of my test, and I was so sure that I would fail so I was really not looking forward to it. Im usually always nervous before tests anyways, and sometimes it ruins it for me, but somehow, I managed to remain calm and when the invigilator at the end said ´Hanna Sofie (long pause) congratulations, you passed with no faults´, I almost cried. Little did he know I hadn't been driving for 2 months.
So, Lucy and Lara, I´m definitely driving us to Dubai during xmas :)))
Whilst I was home I also ate some homecooked meals, which were amazing (thank you Nina). The food was probably one of the things I was most excited about before I left, and I did come back to Sheffield with an overweight suitcase and kilos of Norwegian food
After my test, my brother came to visit me from Oslo, which was really lovely as I havent seen him since the middle of summer. Thank you so much for coming to see me for a little while, I cant wait to show you around Sheffield! I miss you :))
This week I have been busy being social, celebrating Solfrids birthday, and working mostly. I also went to Dronfield with Louisa for a sunday roast which was lovely, thank you so much Sue!
Lastly, just a few photos from this weekend,
