Speedy ! (16 miles per hour)

Today Mr K-E went to the "big" B&Q about 8 miles away. B&Q is a kind of DIY superstore and I hate the place. This must be how men feel about women's shoe shops. They just want to enjoy the end result and not have to go through the squealing/trying/decision-making process.

We have a few B&Q's which are closer but they are smaller and there is less choice available. So, Mr K-E braved the traffic in South London to drive to the giant B&Q.

8 miles in 30 minutes = an average speed of 16 miles an hour. (Mr K-E had good run, with no hold-ups.)

This illustrates why Londoners don't drive. It's just not worth the hassle.

The average traffic speed in London is 10 miles an hour, but to tell the truth I can't believe it is even as fast as that. They are probably including the stats from the middle of night and taking a 24-hour average.

On another note, Mr K-E went a bit crazy in the paint section, without my restraining influence. He bought 11 testers - why? why? why?

That makes a total of 17 testers (so far) that he has bought for our flat which we are selling anyway!

Oh, and we got our shopping delivered today too.
