Since last Friday we’ve done 600 miles … first to youngest daughter to pick up cot for newly-pregnant niece … then on to eldest daughter for a lovely relaxing weekend in the midlands. She had invited my brother and his wife over for Saturday lunch – we had a good old catch-up and they were able to take the cot home for their daughter. On then to second daughter in Surrey on Monday, where we had a free day before looking after Wizz and Danny while SD was away in Dubai for a conference.
She landed at 6.15am today but didn’t get home for 3 hours – the rains have been so heavy that they had washed away a part of the M25 – loads of cars had punctures … and three out of the four lanes were closed!
We took the children to school, gave her a hug and left her to catch up on her sleep. We chose a route to Salisbury that would avoid the M25, arriving in time for lunch with one of my cousins whom I haven’t seen for nearly a year. Nice food in the cathedral cafe! The weather had cheered up too. The trees with their autumn leaves in the sunshine were just so beautiful.
Now back home … ahhh. Feet up …
