A Sigh of Relief

  morddwyd 17 Aug 11

I wondered what the sound of rushing air was that woke me this morning.

Later on I realised - it was a collective sigh of relief.

It was back to school in the local area today!

Not true - it was a sigh of exasperation - I hate the first week of school in September, all those mums who don't know the way to little Johnnies new school and clutter up the roads. Takes them a few weeks to sort themselves out.

Not too bad where I live now, but last year I drove past seven schools on the four mile drive to work.

If I didn't hit the road before 8:15 the 15 minute drive could easily reach the hour mark.

Funny my 65 mile journey now takes 70 minutes tops

The fast food outlets will be welcoming the return of the kids with 'open tills'...the seagulls also too!
