So thanks to the two lovelies Luccia Gray and Julia Simpson for passing on the One Lovely Blog Award; I’m truly grateful to be acknowledged in this way.

4. When you are driving what irritates you most in other drivers/road users. Their existence?

Thanks so much to a wonderfully supportive community bloggers across the world and apologies both to those who didn’t want the burden of another mention and to anyone I forgot. (There are at least another 3x15 nomination slots vacant if you want to give me a nudge.) Apologies too for the sketchy information about your wonderful blogs; I’d be delighted if you were to compensate for my failings by elaborating in the comments.
Thanks to my readers, old and new, for all your support. I hope you’ll stick around for the next phase.
