    It's just taken me 1 hour and 1 minute to drive from Splott to the sulubrious suburbs just north of Cardiff. Normally takes half an hour tops. Fucking nightmare in the rain too.

    Despite the pitifulness of TFW at the moment I'm glad I'm normally a train wanker.

    No burst water mains either as far as I could tell.

    They keep building houses in North Cardiff and seem to forget about roads, but hey ho as long as the councellors get a bung from the builders, lets keep doing it.

    Ahhh. Tongwynlais? It’s got a pub, a shop, place that sells fires, golf course. That’s salubrious enough for me.

    You can go round wearing trainers and carrying a bag of cans. Quality golf course.

    By way of contrast, I left the home at 11.10 this morning to pick something up that required a hundred mile round trip. No dual carriageway involved, but I was home again by 13.40, with a 15 minutes stop to load up.

    One of the major put offs to moving back to the UK is the traffic.

    100 mile round trip?
    If I left my house at 11.10 drove to Swansea waited 15 mins and drove back, I’d be home by 1 o’clock.

    That's fine, but my trip was across country max speed limit 80 kph (50 mph).

    The last time Mrs TDA and I were in the UK for any time, we were based west of Swansea. Travelling M4 to Cardiff each week was an absolute nightmare as traffic was invariably solid around Swansea and Port Talbot, and that was before we even got into the Cardiff nightmare,
