It rained in the night, hard enough to wake me up and keep me on the edge of consciousness for an hour or so, before I nodded off again. I woke up again five minutes or so before my alarm went off just before six, and thankfully the skies were clear.
The journey to and from Newcastle wasn't too bad in the end, even if work was frustrating with a niggly unresolved problem meaning that I didn't get away until half past four. Fortunately the only patch of slow traffic was on the approach to the A1 and after that it was clear for 125 miles until I got home.
Apologies for the general lack of excitement today, but thems the breaks. Anyhoo, I now have a week off and I declare this Friday night well and truly open!
