My New Morning Commute

I moved house recently. It’s a nice place we have moved into, but pretty much the same as the last. The town is about the same size and has all the same shops and places to go.

To be fair, I’m in my car on the way to work and theirs a traffic jam. It’s not unexpected and it’s not like I haven’t planned for it. It is the same every day and it will never change.
