Of course, he was talking about his broken heart being healed, but poetic license notwithstanding, lesson 8 was a good one. We did bends, curves and I was allowed to go over the 40 mile speed limit.
Most of the lesson went so nicely that at one point my instructor clapped her hands (in relief, possibly!)
Anyway, lesson 9 is scheduled for this Wednesday. Fingers crossed that the learnings of the last lesson are not forgotten.
