I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

six word saturday: the drive north



After a busy Monday to Thursday at work, I packed up the car yesterday morning and headed for Scotland to visit my mum for a few days.  I can’t remember the last time I did this 400 mile journey in good weather,  and with absolutely no hold ups whatsoever.  Sometimes there’s good weather but lots of traffic jams, or sometimes there are no traffic jams but the weather is horrible which makes the drive difficult.  Yesterday was bright weather the whole way and there were no roadworks, no accidents and no traffic queues. It was almost pleasurable –  although it might be going a bit far to say that!
