Well all in all it went pretty well. My parents and thewife's seemed to get on fine. Which is good. Glad we were there for it.
Some highlights from today include
Biting into a McDonald's Cafe donut and spraying jam all down my shirt in some sort of raspberry coloured money shot, leaving me with stereotypical stains as you'd seen on a fat person. Because I am obviously so hungry for jam donut goodness that I care not I look like a falstaff type.
Being gently rear ended by the car behind when traffic slowed. We didn't even bother to get out since they hit our towbar and we figured it be more damage to them. Note to self check car in the morning.
Discovering there is no toilet on the M7 and having to find a reasonable emergency phone divot to pull in to in order to find privacy for some urgent wees. Then trying to get back into traffic and getting honked at by some cockbrain despite the fact I gave them at least 500m warning I was coming out.
Otherwise, all good. Be it ever so humble there is of course no place like home. A big thanks to Jenno for cat looking after.
