I had a fabby weekend with the JoLLie StaMpeRs playing with lots of goodies and getting painty and messy. I wish I could say that I finished my sample but... erm... because I was so busy teaching, I didn't get chance to get past the initial painting stage (aha, another sample consigned to the "do it later" pile under the desk lol) Getting there was a dream, early Saturday morning when the roads are lovely and quiet seems to be the right time to travel. However, Sunday afternoon/evening isn't! I had this cunning plan that we would start early on Sunday morning so we could finish earlier, meaning I could be back on the road home by 4.30pm. All well and good, I was on the road by 4.20pm! Anticipated time, according to Jane (SatNav) was 7pm. All was going well, Jane behaved and didn't send me via the Trafford Centre (like last time when I was tootling past it and thought "uh-oh, wrong direction") Anyways, I got onto the M6 and... dragged along for nearly 20 miles... at 20mph. And then I dragged along a bit more... for another 40 miles... and then! The M6 Toll. Well, it would have been rude not to... you know... erm... give Ferdy a stretch of his legs *ahem* By now I was due home at 7.20pm... still not too bad right? WRONG! I got onto the A14 and the incredibly clever bods in the Highway Agency had indeedily decided to close a lane. On a Sunday night. How incredibly clever... NOT! Anyways, I sat there, and sat there a bit more.. and then Jane said I was not going to be home very soon. So, I screeched off the A14 and went the back way - Jane was no use by now, she kept telling me to get back onto the A14... so I ignored her and followed my nose. I walked in the door at just after 8pm. So, the moral of the story... don't plan to be home at a certain time on a Sunday evening, the roads are too small, the traffic too heavy and my impatience... too much lol
Right, I shall away, I have a to-do list again that is making noises... no art today *sad face*... hoping to blog some tomorrow though :O)) Thanks for looking.. TTFN!
