Monday was a Dad's taxi trip to Brum Airport.
Tuesday was Christmas shopping day to get that out of the way, it's nice to sit back and relax knowing most of it is done.
Wednesday was flood inspection day, I also managed to get the grass cut for hopefully the last time this year.
Thursday down to Bristol and the Cat cafe.
Friday rugby on TV followed by chill out time this afternoon.

Monday: Park Royal first, then another round the corner. Down to Southall to shift one pallet, followed by a pair of Greenford deliveries. The first simple and quick, the second a bit of a queue and a blindside reverse to get in :o . A ride out to West Drayton for the last drop helped me get over the stress, then it was time to run up to a farm near Ely, only to discover that the load wasn't ready, and wouldn't be for quite a while, so ran home empty.

Tuesday: A run oop north to deliver in Doncaster, and then a second drop in Barnsley. Back down to Kings Lynn to load one into Guyhirn, tip that and fetch another one back from Lynn.

Wednesday: An early run down into London to get a break in before starting on the days deliveries. After forty five outside a usefully placed Sainsburys I got the first off at Bromley by Bow, then headed across town to do Cricklewood. Knowing the North Circular was going to be very heavy going, a chance was taken on the cutting through Dalston and Hackney to the inner ring road, running past Kings Cross and Euston before turning up Edgeware road to get out to the area. Whilst slow the traffic kept moving, helped by going against the flow for the second half of the journey. .After Cricklewood came Hendon, then the more familiar surrounds of Park Royal and Southall. Two in West Drayton finished the run, then a quick rest at Heston before running back to base.

Thursday: Another day, another run into Park Royal, then back to Staples Corner before rolling down into Camden. Reload Kings Lynn back to Guyhirn.

Friday: Two drops in Swindon, then home for the weekend :mrgreen:
