I dislike traffic at the best of times. Normally I don't have to worry about it, since I tend to be going in the opporsite direction to the main flow, or at least perpendicular to it|
Getting to Gloucester yesterday took just over an hour, and that was with a tiny detour at the end. Getting home took me just shy of 2 hours :-( There'd been an accident going the other way on one of the roads, which caused something of a slowdown. However, 1 mile past the accident, I then sat in an even longer jam, caused by a badly designed junction many many miles ahead
All in all, I was quite unimpressed with the excessive length of time it took me to get home, and the evil looks I then got from Hilary for being late for dinner....
Still, took just under an hour to get back again this morning, which was a pleasant change.
Now, if I'm very lucky, I might even be able to time leaving tonight with popping over to see quidity for a cup of tea on my way back. If only it wasn't quite such an ordeal to actually ring him at work....
