Now we’ve not only had 2 bikes stolen, but we’ve also got car troubles with Alexanders car. So This morning I dropped Alexander off at work so that I could take it to the car yard to get it looked at. When it is cold it won’t accelerate or rev high and we sometimes can’t go faster than 30km/hr. Not particularly safe driving.
So I took the Tom Tom to help me find my way home from his work. I made my first mistake by turning left instead of right (I have no idea why I did this and it’s possible that Tom Tom directed me the right way). I knew there were road works and I had to ignore the Tom Tom for a particular street, but when it kept saying “Turn right at the next street” I started to wonder if there was something wrong. At this point I pulled over and got out my trusty iPhone and looked up where I was on the map (Tom Tom does a zoom out feature aswell but I can’t for the life of me figure it out). I realised that I’d totally gone the wrong way.
I let Tom Tom take me home from there and it was a pretty easy route……..but I definately went the LONG way home…..lol.
That after noon I had to pick Alexander back up from work (and also we had news that the car issues were not good, probably not worth repairing). Again I set Tom Tom up to direct me………this time I think I turned at the wrong street again……thinking I knew the way and not really paying attention to the Tom Tom. I ended up in the centre of the city (of Apeldoorn), I ended up stuck in roadworks and turned down another street that the Tom Tom told me to. I began to be aware that the road became smaller and the signs made me very certain that I was going the wrong way down a one way street………ugh.
After ringing Alexander he wanted me to turn left, which I couldn’t cuz of road works. I eventually found my way……….ah what fun 🙂
