It usually takes me under 45 minutes to get to work. I’m lucky because I live right out in the sticks, it’s country roads almost all the way to the motorway and, at the other end, there’s hardly ever any traffic in the town I work in.
A few weeks ago, Kent Highway Services decided to close one lane of the motorway where I leave it. There are only two lanes there so that’s made it slightly more entertaining. Today though, they decided to close the other lane.
I’d be the first to admit that sitting in near-stationary traffic for the best part of an hour is an overrated pasttime, especially when the Czech lorry driver next to you is blasting out some really nasty music, but at least I had a parcel to open, which had arrived as I left the house. And not just any parcel….
I thought I’d been supremely organised by ordering some more coconut butter before I finished the other jar but I managed to underestimate not only how long it takes to ship things from America but also how much of this stuff I get through and I’ve been without it for AGES. A WEEK at least…
It has been a tough time for me but thanks to the love and support from
family and friends peanut and almond butter, I’ve got through it. Just.
I could write books on how mouthtinglingly delicious this stuff is – but it’s also got amazing superelectromagnetic powers. I don’t know whether it’s the jar or the butter itself, but whenever you try to put the lid back on, this force irresistibly drags your finger into the jar and round (clockwise, usually), then an equally strong repellent force pushes your finger back into your mouth. And it’s too strong to resist; I’ve tried.
The last bit’s a lie of course – I haven’t tried.
…traffic jam? What traffic jam??
