Traffic headaches

These roads being under construction is everybody’s headache nowadays. For how long is it going to go on? You would think that they would be in a hurry to finish it for the World Cup, but apparently not!
My longest time this year was two and a half hour already, where it should take me no longer than half an hour. Nowadays I spend more than an hour on the road going to work and coming back a little bit less: three quarters of an hour.
Two hours a day of precious time being wasted… It’s got to have an impact on quality of life!
Powerwoman try to take it in her stride (ride), taking my breakfast with me in the mornings, and drinking herbal tea (note, not coffee) along the way. Listening to the radio!
BUT it is a PAIN! Grumble, grumble, grumble…

Thanks for listening. I feel a bit better already on this TGIF-day!

  1. Here in London traveling time is at least 60-90 minutes each direction. So 3 hours per day spend on public transport (trains, tubes and busses). Think the South African roads will be amazing when they finish........ the question is indeed WHEN??

  2. Am glad to say this is a benefit of living in East London - no road works in aid of 2010.

    Thank heavens.

    And yes, your 'baby' is simply gorgeous. That post is one that needs to be printed out and stuck in an album/baby book/scrap book.


I love to hear your comments :D
