Watching birds, patience on the road and sorry I couldn’t answer the phone, I was wrestling with an eel

The drive to work was the more picturesque of the two options.

Instead of passing through Telford, I took the A458 Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock road before joining the A5 near Shrewsbury,

In Bridgnorth I saw a lady wanting to turn right and, so with no traffic coming the other way, I slowed down to let her through.

She was very hesitant but we’re talking just seconds.

Not responding quickly enough for the highway maintenance vehicle stopped behind me, he fell on his horn and mounted the inside pavement at top speed to make a point.
