It took me over 6 hours to get back from Essex, journeying though the driving rain at times so bad it was difficult to the road. The worst part of the journey though was the final part down the M6 I had only 3 junctions to go but the traffic virtually stopped moving meaning a few miles took over an hour. I felt incredibly drained by it all and was really glad to arrive home.
Having had only a limited connection to the internet during the week I had a lot of Facebook pokes, messages and email (mostly junk) to catch up on. One of my Facebook messages was rather intriguing, an old acquaintance contacted me to say shes now working nearby to me. I think it will be very interesting to meet up, and always nice to renew old friendships.
