- The end of roadworks on the motorway bridge at the beginning of my drive to work every morning, and at the end of my drive home
A chunk of metal from the bit of the bridge that lifts to let tall ships through came off two weeks ago, and they've been trying to fix it ever since. In the meantime, the 70km/h speed limit causes tailbacks at peak hours. My detour to avoid standing traffic is very pleasant - through the lanes and villages to join the motorway again 4 junctions up - especially at this time of year, but it doesn't put me in the mood for coming to work. I have three weeks off from 24 July...
The end of roadworks hasn't happened yet but it will be sooo good when it does.
