After our trek to the lakes I really wanted a rest from driving so Thursday was just spent pottering around not doing anything in particular. Friday was another matter though, we went to Seahouses.
I have to admit I don't particularly like driving, especially the longer journeys. After about an hour I tend to get quite tired and my eyes start to sting . I'm not very confident with roundabouts and as for narrow roads - the least said about that the better.
I'm terrified of killing something like a bird or a rabbit - anything and get really nervous . I know Hub is right when he says that I can't keep braking for birds in the road but I can't help it, even though I know it's more dangerous to brake. Anyway , the point I'm trying to make is that I had only wanted to drive for about an hour but to get to Seahouses took an hour and a half so I wasn't in the best of moods when we got there.
Even with these spectacular views and knowing the boys were having a whale of a time I couldn't relax knowing I had the drive back to do also.
I love Seahouses and it's amazing beaches but I think that after the long drives of the days before it was just too much for me. Even though I passed my test 7 months ago now , I don't use the car every day it really only gets used to take Hub to and from work or to the supermarket. I don't use it for school runs or going to town. Sometimes it can sit there for days on end.
When we are preparing to go somewhere which is a longer journey about an hour before I get really ratty and snap at everyone , I know I'm doing it and Hub knows I do it - surely it must get easier?
I'm sorry for the whinge and I hope the pics help detract from it ..... I've even got butterflies in my stomach just writing this .
Oh, and a lorry had broken down on the motorway on the way home so it took us 2 hours to get home !!!!
