Monday: A trio of Park Royal deliveries, ending with an old customer in new premises. Sadly the access isn't any better, so much narrow gear is required to navigate a passage through. Wembley next, then down to Greenford before running over to Southall to do two. Final call is into West Drayton with a single sample case, then up to Guyhirn to fetch a load from the firm next door back to HQ.
Tuesday: A full load down to Basingstoke, then back up to Kings Lynn to reload for home, pausing to get the lorry washed at Walsoken on the way through.
Wednesday: Bracknell first, then back up to High Wycombe and Hemel. Its a new customer in Hemel, and I manage to drive past them once, before spotting the enterence at the second attempt. Reload Kings Lynn once more back to base.
Thursday: A return to Park Royal, and the same three deliveries I did Monday, with the added bonus of a collection at the last. Back to Guyhirn to collect some more from the firm next door and back to HQ.
Friday: The end of my week begins with a visit to Rye Park, then down the road to Waltham Abbey, just in time for their tea break . Once they'd finished their brew and decided to do a bit I was back underway to Hornsey, then over to Leyton, before reaching my final stop in Hackney. Here it was lunch time, an extended break for Friday prayer meaning then it took quite a while for them to get me tipped after they'd finished the one ahead of me. This in turn meant I got caught up in the bank holiday Friday traffic melee on the motorway, which saw me parking in the village lay by as that was as far as I was legally going to get
Saturday: Run back into the yard, diesel up and get hooked to Tuesdays trailer ready to go _________________ Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.
Its about learning to dance in the rain.
