Ode to Joy

We're here then after a pretty uneventful journey for us.

Not only did we make it in time for our Channel Tunnel crossing we got there ahead of schedule and went through half an hour early. Though I suppose that does keep the record of never actually getting on the crossing we've booked unbroken.

We set off about 11am and got to Leeds about midnight as we saw the city spread out before us what was on the radio? Beethoven's Ode to Joy.

Good omen or The Universe having a laugh?

Wow, the city twinkling in the dark and Beethoven's timely input suggests the angels are with you...

Make the most of it!

Do you have to book a channel tunnel crossing? and why?

Breezy said...

Aims you can just turn up but it costs a lot more than booking in advance (main reason). You don't drive through you drive the car onto a train which then goes through the tunnel. If you have not booked at busy times you could be waiting a long time.

Hi Bubba and Lazlo, glad you got back safely. So, the high life of Leeds beckons. Hope the work goes well. The chooks are doing really well. I moved the coup this morning as they had thoroughly weeded that first patch. Eggs are great as well. :-)

Glad to hear our girls are OK

First day at work today working in the cash office at the Uni taking tuition fees etc. Not too taxing

travelling, but not in love said...

I think it's a good omen.

I love it when music and the situation meet by accident.

And Leeds is a great city - there are far worse places to earn a buck or two...

TBNIL That music was just the thing at the end of a long long drive I've had it on the brain though ever since but at least it's uplifting.
