HS:MS Confused

Todays prompt over on Her Space : My Space is confused. Show confused in your space.

Well those who know of Milton Keynes know that it has hundreds of roundabouts. This map show a 2 square mile area (approx) and there are 7 major roundabout. Of course there are loads of them that are not showing on this map. When I moved to Milton Keynes from Surrey 19 years ago they confused the hell out of me, I could take a a dozen different routes for the same journey. Now years later, it makes perfect sense.

ETA...Just did a Google search and found this info...

How many roundabouts are there in Milton Keynes?

Ah, depends on what you call a roundabout. If you mean a fully formed structure with its own name and grass and flowers, then 300 is a generally agreed number. But if you mean anything which affects the gyratory movement of traffic (e.g. a painted bump in the middle of the road designed to control traffic within a housing estate) then figures as high as 1000 are bandied about.

Here where I live we have maybe a handful of roundabouts. They confuse me so I stay away from them at all costs.

LOL . . . Nearly had to go to MK in August and OH did everything he could to avoid it. And he succeeded.

Nothing wrong with MK I just think we would still be there if we had of ended up going!!!!

Fabulous interpretation :)

And the cups is a good idea that I think is so easy. Thanks for letting me know.

Bye for now . . . Sue
