An extended meeting today, from early morning, with just a ten minute sandwich break around midday.
It was 'Up North' and when it finished I realised I'd be hitting big traffic if I took the motorway route home.
Instead I picked a few favourite cross country spots and meandered back at least part of the way on lanes and across the Pennines and Peak District. It added a good couple of hours to the shortest time I could have taken and I did pause to look around in a couple of places, but I reckon the detour and a bit of country air was good for the soul.
Time well spent, even if it means tomorrow now needs to be manic.
