I took one of the kids to the station today to go to school, as I have done recently and my what a pleasure it is to drive in the country. It must be about four miles to the station on a fairly fast bendy country road, good visibility, great sweeping curves and at seven in the morning, bugger all traffic.
However in contrast later in the day I went back to London; it all started so well, country lanes round the back doubles as we ruddy faced country people know all the short cuts then a quick blast down the motorway.
I still don’t understand why everyone in the country uses large four by four vehicles as the roads are mostly smooth and well surfaced, I’ve yet to go to a point to point (whatever it may be) so I may change my mind on that one at a later date.
Sadly when one returns to London a four by four is becoming a necessity as driving in London now is like driving up the north face of the Eiger, there are so many enormous speed humps everywhere and to travel four miles down the road in town takes an eternity.
As I was driving back in my two seater sports car (MG, that’s real class) I thought just how well suited it was for the country roads. Happy days!
