What a journey


Had to drive back home from Yorkshire last night along the M1. This journey normally takes about an hour but because of the weather conditions took us over 3 hours.

For a long while we were only doing 10 miles per hour following in the tracks of the vehicle in front. Snow had covered all the road markings.

Still we did better than the north bound carriageway which had come to a standstill because of jack-knifed lorries.

Snow is lovely to look at and play in but a b----- nuisance when travelling.

Still apart from that had a good trip.

Thought for today:- Do you enjoy life whatever the weather or do you let circumstances dictate your attitude?

Joke for today:- Advice to single girls. Don't look for a husband, look for a batchelor.

On this day:- 1st December
