Mad, scary and bad

Surviving the walk to school each morning

Mexican Stand-off

Thank goodness the weekend’s rain has stopped.  We didn’t much relish a walk to school in pouring rain, dodging the puddles and water thrown up by passing cars.  The path south of Mill Lane has turned into a long muddy puddle, so much for newly polished school shoes! The edge of the path has merged into the road, so it feels like we’re walking along the road, cars passing very close by.

There was a distinct lack of lorries this morning, an emerging trend that is all for the good at this time of day.  However, the volume of traffic was still too much for our small country road to bear.  I did wonder if we were in for a Mexican stand-off, as the two lines of traffic came to a halt for a few minutes.

Still, there’s only another three days of school before Christmas.  Three days full of carol services and concerts…

What’s happening about housing plans in Stapeley?
Perhaps you signed a petition over the past few months, against unsustainable development.  Over 1500 put their names to the petition, which was handed to our local MP, Edward Timpson MP, last week.  He has been given a clear mandate to stand up for our views in this matter.

Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 8
Stupid/careless parking: 0
Manners: 8
No. of cars parking illegally:0
