I’m in Scotland again, having travelled up yesterday morning – first to my mum’s to pick her up (and her car) and then on to my sister’s house to look after her pets while the family are away for a few days. I have flown up this time, but that meant making a decision about how to travel to the airport from home. Mr I had an early meeting, so wasn’t able to drop me off at the airport, meaning that I had to consider the other options –
1. Drive myself and park in a long stay car park for 6 nights – the most expensive option but possibly the simplest.
2. Take a taxi – quite pricey for a one way trip, and what if it turned up late at my house and I missed my flight? It was also hard to decide which taxi company to use.
3. Take the bus – very cheap, but not at all convenient to get to the bus stop for the start of the journey.
I just couldn’t decide what to do – weighing up cost versus convenience – and by late Wednesday afternoon had still not made up my mind, although pre-booking long stay car parking was just edging in front, followed by the taxi, and I had ruled the bus out.
Enter Mr I at this point to tell me that his early morning meeting had been rescheduled and he would be able to drive me to the airport. Hurrah! The decision had been taken out of my hands, and it was definitely the simpest and cheapest option! Three cheers for indecision! 🙂
