Tech may be moving quickly, but some of our roads aren’t!

Isn’t this time of year uplifting?  It’s much easier to wake up in the morning when the sun is streaming through the window and the birds are singing.

Having said that, it’s not easy getting a good night’s sleep in a strange bed.  This week’s column comes to you from a hotel room a long way from home.  Life on the road is far from glamorous.

Last night, the maid in my hotel room just turned my bed down. She’s not the first woman to do that either!

Traveling and being away from home has become a way of life, but modern technology has helped in such a way that staying in touch with family and friends is easier than ever.  I regularly Skype call my Cocker Spaniel when I’m away.

How times have changed over the past 20 years . . . Think about it, we didn’t have all this technology back then.  It was so much harder to stay in touch. Or was this a good thing? Did we talk more face to face?

Technology may be moving on, but things are far from perfect.  The traffic in our towns and cities remain a battleground and seem to be getting worse.  Swansea, Llanelli and even Ammanford have turned into a war zone recently and there are many frustrated drivers, including myself, close to breaking point.

I remember my grandad always used to say, “You’ve got to pick your battles.”
Which is why he was dishonourably discharged from the Army.
