Driving Mr Gnomepants @ 19:47

25 miles is....like....miles.

My commute has gone from a 15 minute one to a 45 minute one down the motorway. Now, in any other circumstance I might think "Chuffin eck that's like 90 minutes of my life gone every day". In fact I used to mock an old Freeserve Chat chum of mine for travelling from Abingdon to Leatherhead and back every day. I mean that's just craziness.

However, I have to turn this down side into a positive and surprisingly it is easy. After the morning drive, I am so tense and wound up that work seems relaxing; likewise after the evening drive, I am able to chill and relax much easier. I think its all comparative at the moment and I'm sure if I'm still doing the same commute this time next year I'll be saying something like "Chuffin' eck why did I bother saying yes to this job".

Not much in the way of other news really. I'm hankering for a really good mixed grill.

If I can actually get a job, I'm sure I'll be having a nice long commute to somewhere. I LOVE driving but you get all the dicks on the roads in evening rush hours >< (not you, I'm sure!) & petrol prices make me want to stab people.

My walk to and from work each day is valuable chill out time and although I have been offered lifts etc I always turn them down for that reason

I agree; you start a job and the commute doesn't seem too bad. After 12 months however it does become a drag.

Thank you for sharing the mixed grill: having just had breakfast I now want a bacon butty!
