    Default "MAN" it's great to be alive moment

    Life has been a bit rough last few months and in the last couple of weeks I have finally sorted out forward work and have a reasonable plan ahead again, so,,,

    Today woke up after a big meeting that is part of this plan, in Newcastle to drive to another big client meeting in Lanarkshire on the way home.

    Coming over the Hadrians wall Hexham to Greenhead Road about 10.30am Ken Bruce played Fleetwood Mac "Sara" it was a thinly sunny, hazy morning the road was empty and the sensation of driving across the "roof" of the country to that song was indescribable, pure utter blissful joy me and my wee Vectra having the kind of fun we should do every day but don't!

    My favourite part (apart from the entire length and it's beauty) on the old Roman road is the two massive hidden dips (you'll know,,,) when I am in anything other than my own car I belt through these getting passengers to close eyes for that ultimate "Alton Towers" moment
