My poor DH has been with clients today in Bury St Edmunds (we're in Worcester). He was supposed to be home at 6.30 but has been stuck on the M40 on the wrong side of Leamington Spa for the past 2 hours 15 mins. In that time he has managed to move 10 miles. Apparently there are some faulty traffic lights causing havoc somewhere and so accidents are happening left right and centre. He phoned me and said that there were tons of people just walking about outside of their cars ! He'll be lucky if he's home before 10pm. He left early this morning and so it means that DD won't see her Daddy today Bloody traffic.

He turned up at 9.45pm. Gave me a cursory kiss and went straight upstairs to watch DD sleeping ! He's in Newmarket today, I'm expecting more of the same
