The 5 Things tag keeps surfacing on WordPress. I am not sure who first thought of it but I have always found it fun to do. I thought “Why not make it a weekly feature?”
These days most people are working from home and therefore missing their daily commute to work. I never thought this was something I would miss but you don’t usually miss things until they’re gone. This week I have asked you to list 5 Things that you miss about your daily drive / commute to work.

I look forward to reading your list. Please remember to tag it #5things
