IT’S SCHOOL RUN season again.

That could mean the end of summer, signal the return of traffic jams and the morning rush out the door.

Or you could do like us here at TheJournal.ie HQ and take it as a cue to compile your happy soundtrack to get you through the morning commute.

Yes, let’s do that.
