The Flower lorry came up the road, there was no room for where it normally parks. It just parked opposite me. The traffic started to build up. After five minutes it went up the road, turned round and came past and parked further down the road.
Besides that and cars not stopping the other side of the road, my morning shift went better than expected.
Finished in one piece.
