    Rant alert.

    My journey home today took 1 hour and 40 minutes extra, with two road closures. The first one was horrendous, only one sign saying 'no exit' forcing everyone to take the other exit, 20 miles to the next junction, the return road totally closed, one diversion sign.. no others. Driving through the backroads, passed two cars with men with petrol cans, and another road was blocked with a lorry that had been got suck under a bridge (I drove around him on the grass!).

    Then closer to home, another road closed. Diversion sign sending people on a 15 mile detour, when there was a detour of about 3 miles... flipping highway agency want sacking.

    ps budget blown!

    I hate diversions, especially when there are a couple of different ones within a few miles of each other. A memorable one was outside Tamworth, way back when they were building a new access road, all traffic was diverted but then it got muddled up with other diverted traffic and we took over an hour only to end up right back where we'd blooming well started, so the second go of the same diversion saw me pulling over and using a map. Which worked.

    Hi

    I've really got to get back into glitching. Lost my way a bit and the spending is creeping up

    Moving house soon so I really need to tighten my belt. I've been reading back and see there is a beer glitch and muller ATM. Am I right in thinking buy beer in 3s and muller 11 of one kind 1 of another? Could anybody help with how much the yoghurts work out at?

    Thanks, looking forward to getting back on board
