move slowly or heavily
trundle - roll
The word ‘trundle’ was originally used to refer to something on wheels that is rolled about or moves around in a typically laborious fashion. It has since been adapted to also express a person who moves or thinks with difficulty or in a slow, awkward way. Generally used to express disapproval.
I took the bus to work this morning. It took nearly an hour for it to trundle its way through the congested city centre!
My tired mind trundled as I tried to take in all the information from the meeting. It was simply too much.
The builders arrived very early this morning. I could hear one of them trundling his wheelbarrow down the drive at 6 AM.
