Christmas time

M25 roadworks

And so it was Christmas, and it’s all but over now. I had a fairly peaceful time with extended family and friends at Mudkip’s place. I’m also enjoying a break from work as I only return in the new year. On Christmas night, after all the celebrations were over, I did a trip down the M25 and back (to drop a friend at home). I found this band of workers had shut down all but one lane anti-clockwise between junctions 8 and 7 as they were carrying out some bridge maintenance.  After all the complaints one hears (or makes) about the disruptions caused by such maintenance during inconvenient times it is good to see that sometimes such work is scheduled at a time when it is most convenient to the general public (and most inconvenient to the workers carrying it out). The photo was taken after midnight, so it was already Boxing Day. Personally I would prefer nobody to have to work on Christmas Day (and other key public holidays) but of course we should be remember and be grateful to those who work the emergency and essential services on those days.
