We have been out and about visiting relative for the past week. The journey, of course, takes in the obligatory motorways. The journey takes around four hours and will necessitate a coffee stop. Not wanting to expose ourselves to the self-inflicted torture longer than possible we usually check the traffic before we go.
I think this time I won’t. Checking traffic is an attempt to influence fate – is it not? The traffic will be what it is. Why worry. The journey will be the journey. This time we will enjoy the time and relax. After all, we have to come back in a week! I’m not even going to get into the cost of diesel! Time to check in for breakfast and then calmly get the family packed and into the car. Motorway madness here we come!
