They’d been married for fifty-eight years, and throughout all those years, Mrs Anne Limbert did the driving. Her husband, Keith, had some driving lessons in his 20s, but never took his test. It seemed to work out well, and they got used to it. He said that it meant that when they went out, he could have a drink or two. “I was chauffeur driven, to be honest.”
But when Anne, (also 79) had a stroke, and developed breast cancer, he realised he had to become the chauffeur. So he took driving lessons, and after two failed attempts, finally passed his driving test.
Now, as well as driving to hospital appointments, they can treat themselves to simple pleasures. She said, “I think he’s done brilliantly. We go to garden centres mostly, and I have a scone.”
It’s never too late!
