Tempus fugit - time flies and leaves nothing in its wake apart from memories. Some positive but others are negative.
Let's stick with the positives.

Yesterday I 'played friends of the M6'.
Usually I prefer to avoid travels on a Friday, so how come I headed north yesterday? There are few people that could encourage me to break my self-imposed 'never on a Friday' travel. 

Two days ago, I received a message asking me if I was free 'tomorrow'. My god-daughter had plans for me and her mother (my long-time best friend). 

The hobbit movie is being shown nation-wide and god-daughter knows how much we love Tolkien. So she'd decided on a get-together and watch the film day. It never crossed my mind that travel would be on a Friday. Hence, I headed north along the dreaded M6 to meet up.

There's something inestimably good about the love and friendship of our nearest and dearest.  Hence without thinking I travelled up and then down the M6 almost without a qualm. Now I have memories to cherish.

I'm glad you went, Friday or not! I've also made forays into situations I'd rather not for the sake of someone else. It always turns out to be a good thing.

Well done, Joan . . . sometimes those barriers are there for us to push aside and pass through!
