Finally made it up to Glossop after a horrendously long (5+ hours) drive. All was going well until just after the Toll M6 when the first of the neverending queues began. What do all these people do that allows them to leave work before 2pm on Maundy Thursday?

Well, they've no rights to - they should be working, that's what workers do. ;)

I've never understood why people feel the need to hit the road just because it is a bank holiday. Ok, when they were the only holidays people got it was understandable but now? Geez. What is the point?

Precisely!

Mind you, my Mum, who's 87, still insists on taking her holidays during what would have been wakes weeks and school holidays, when she could go at any other time of the year (when it would be cheaper, too)

Because they all leave early to avoid the rush!

I saw a program once, 3 car journeys: one set off early in the morning, one left it til the afternoon, and one travelled overnight the previous night.

I have no idea where I was going with that, sorry!

Probably the overnight car took the least time. I remember at the last class reunion I attended, a friend drove up from London overnight because she reckoned it was the best time to do it - and she was right.

Yup! That was it. Thank you. My brain worries me sometimes.

Mine would if it could, but I try to have as little communication with it as I can. ;)

Glossop? Oh, my, remember Glossop. Especially the Old Schoolhouse, where I spent Christmas '82 with my mother-in-law to be.
