MUCH NEEDED R&R

We arrived home from our little road trip safe and well, just!
The first northern exit to the M25 was closed and so we detoured via a road leading to Staines(don't ask me how) and we were nearly killed by a joyrider, I have to admit that I haven't even seen worse driving on Police,Camera, Action.
If asked to describe the little sweetheart I would only be able to say that he was a teenager wearing a hoodie and a baseball cap and driving a red escort.What frightened me most was the fact that as he cut across in front of me was the thought that he was being chased by a police car and we were all going to get hit and be killed by the police car! I have nearly been hit before by a police pursuit vehicle and it was equally as scary. Ali G's portrayal of Staines and the Staines Massive seemed pretty accurate last night. I love living in my small city, we have similar problems to other places but there is definitely no place like home.
We arrived back at 3:30am, I got up at 7am to get Beauty to school and now is definitely the time for a little R&R to help me recover in time for Beauty's return.

Sounds like you had the car journey from hell - glad to hear you all got back home safely. Your experience reminds me why - at 37 - I still haven't learnt to drive!

Good grief-so glad you're ok!

Hope you get a little rest today.

I didn't learn to drive until I was 40 and I definitely feel that I have saved myself many years of stress by learning to drive later.

I don't usually mind driving even in the traffic. We are off to Toronto, this weekend.

Even with the driving I hope you had a good break.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
