Today didn’t exactly pan out in the way I’d thought it would. That’s not to say it was worse, or better, than it could have been, it was just different. Started the morning with some painting and then had to take my younger son to an appointment, which is where it all started to go wrong… because of a collapsed drain cover on the motorway. I was late to the school, late to the appointment and there was no chance of getting my son back to school for the afternoon. All three lanes of motorway traffic were being diverted down a single lane road. The single lane road that we had to drive on to get home. 10 miles of congestion and 7 hours later the motorway was reopened. Fortunately we weren’t delayed for 7 hours or embroiled in a 10 mile tailback, but the situation did mean I was out longer than I wanted to be and that my son was then in the house with me.

I had to Google what the poetic form of a poem is where all the words start with the same letter, how serendipidous that is is a tautogram. I hope you enjoyed my “T – Tautogram”!
