|Ready to go...|
|Gill braves the downpour|
|The magnificence of Leicester Forest East (southbound) services in the rain.|
|And no, jollification with flowers and a waving Pugsy does not improve things...|
|nor does a splash of lime green brighten things up, it merely creates a bilious pallor|
South of here road works stretch for miles, new junctions are being created and smart signage with variable speed limit installed. I hope it all helps, because right now the density of traffic, particularly the nose to tail trucks render the M1 and M25 almost unusable. The average speed of our journey from Buxton to Canterbury was 31.7mph., no major hold-ups, but stop/start for 240 miles.
