Still recovering after a 5 hour road trip from Amanda's mum's in Warminster.
It took 2 hours and 15 minutes to get down there on Thursday night - 150 miles door-to-door, with Esme chattering about anything and everything. She was particularly fascinated by the motorway names, and when we would get on/off each one. M54, M6, M5, M4 then to Bath and then Warminster. "Are we still on the number 5?" I think she must have asked that maybe a hundred times, I know it's a long motorway, but still.
She finally joined Bradley in the land of nod and only woke again when we arrived, but only briefly. Bradley, however, was full of beans and dead excited about being at Nanny's. He kept it up for a couple of hours, playing with his bubbles, running into rooms and mostly, sitting on my lap, "daddy's boy."
After finally sorting out the insurance for the Renault 5 I leave at 12.15pm on Friday. I'm doing 80-85mph up the motorway, as I was on the way down. Hit West Bromwich and crunch. I'm stuck in traffic for three frigging hours. Finally, I see the accident, a lorry has spilt it's load of wire thingies. Just before the M5 splits to go south or north on the M6--three lanes down to one. And arrive at home at 5.05pm.
