It had to happen at some point – heavy traffic slowing my journey to Loughborough. It probably isn’t too surprising that it was today, as I’d been in Chislehurst for an event in the afternoon. That meant I had to contend with London’s drive-time traffic as well as a broken down vehicle on the M1 (traffic northbound stopped dead for 15-20 minutes) and an extended stretch of roadworks (further south than I normally join the M1).
Ho-hum. 4.5 hours rather than the expected 3 hours (and still a chunk more than the 1.75 hours it normally takes from Oxford). Never mind – the journey was safe and successful. However, I’m looking forward to when the long commute drops back out of my weekly schedule.
