Kittens? Point me to the kittens. Even better than looking at Fiats. (slightly)

Weird. That's the second time I've posted an image and it's come up twice like that.

Re: What's made you grumpy today? (Part II)

Not bloody well telling you! Why should I.

Actually Windows 10. As usual choosing to update its-self when I needed to use the computer in a hurry, and when it does this is runs so slowly its useless. If I could get my hands round the throat of anyone Microsoft........

There are so many ********* out there fouling things up its necessary to set auto update on and take these as soon as offered. It still drives me MAD!!! A thousand curses on the lot of them, on the world, the universe.....

Thanks for that. After making sure the image was small I was dismayed to find it plastered twice across the screen. Then when I went to edit it there was only one image. I shan't fret about it again. 👍

Re: What's made you grumpy today? (Part II)

On a 10 hour shift today..started at 7am to cover for another site.

The rest of the building doesn't open until 9am...so had to ring head office security...

I'm now knackered having been covering 3 sites until 10.

Ah well 2 good bits..not back on a shift on Saturday until September. Also my commute took all of 12 minutes.

Re: What's made you grumpy today? (Part II)

Had to travel to Crawley today, M4 from Newbury, then normally M25 and M23.
Highways England website advised closure on M25 between M4 and M3, so alternative route is off at Reading onto A329(M) to Bracknell and Bagshot to join M3. M3 from there has had ongoing roadworks for nearly two years, but Highways England website showed flowing freely, so I assumed finished at last. No. Apparently only shows incidents and closures. Roadworks with slower speed is kept a secret.

Off onto A329(M). Seems the whole world has gone that way too. Struggled to use 2nd gear! Then at M3, all slow there too.

At last onto M25, still slow, as two further incidents between M3 and M23. Not surprising shown the standard of driving today.

Whole journey, 100 miles, took 3 hours. Journey home, from 8:15pm, 2 hours. 70mph on the M25!

I felt tired just reading that! What a nightmare. I'm off down to Crawley a week on Tuesday - I hope my journey is a good deal smoother!

Good luck.
Take a picnic, and don't miss any loo stops.

Re: What's made you grumpy today? (Part II)

If you think the M3 is bad try the A14 in Cambridgeshire. Two fatal accidents this month already. Took me over an hour to do 1 1/2 miles on it a couple of weeks ago. last year it took 3 1/2 hours to do the 10 miles to work one morning. There ae major roadworks for the next 3 1/2 years.

Re: What's made you grumpy today? (Part II)

On Friday I used the M27, M3, M25 and M11. Ugh!
M27/M3 was slow before Winchester, congested all the way to Fleet, and then a 50mph limit for ever and ever until the M25, which was stop-go for hours. Dead slow and stressful all the way. And then, to finish, the dilapidated A11 with all its roundabouts and broken surfaces leading into Norwich. A miserable run.

I used the adaptive cruise control, which made keeping the speed down more reliable, and congratulated myself again for choosing an automatic, but... driving is no pleasure.

It was exactly the same going out two days earlier as well.

I'm just glad I don't drive regularly by day for a living.
