It’s Thursday and I’ve survived 4 days of London’s congestion charge. For those that haven’t heard you now have to pay ?5 (8USD) to enter an 8 square mile zone that is central London between 07:00 and 18:30 🙁 They cunningly started it at the beginning of the school holidays so the traffic was about 20% less anyway and then said “look what a difference it’s made, there’s hardly any traffic!” Of course not you fools!  Anyway…. my old route to work used to go though one corner of the zone and I’ve had to re-plan it to, unfortunately, use one of the boundary roads. The main problem with this is everyone else is doing the same 🙁 Oh well………

As for the Cramers everyone is OK and life just zips past in a blur of work, nappies and cuddles. Max was weighed again today and in the last three weeks his weight has gone from 9-3 to 10-6 to 11-4 and he seems to be happy enough with his lot smile

    Wow, that is bizzare, though I guess a toll booth would be similar? 

    Max is a growing boy! Glad to hear all is well. smile

    Gina – kind of. The system that they have installed is all based around hundreds of number plate recognition cameras . Kind of a medium tech solution I guess.
