So..... I drove a slightly different way, which took me back towards work and via a strange, weird and convoluted set of moving I finally ended up at home. Its hard to describe the route but you would certainly say it was 'interesting'.
I prefer to be moving rather in a jam so as long as I listen to the local travel reports and have my reserve routes and divertions then I usually only get caught in the odd place and for not long. I'll admit that my routes can get strange but in the end I get home.
When I move campuses then I'll be on the bus or walking or a combination of both so I'll have more options. Right - time to make my evening meal, its 'fry up' night tonight.
