Best Laid Plans.....
We had pressies, we had party games, we had food for the trip, we had a car that had gone down to Poole without any trouble - we thought we were up for a good weekend...
Unfortunately shortly after we hit the M23 we lost power. We pulled over to the hard shoulder & waited for the AA. He turned up after 30 mins, said he couldn't see anything wrong & asked me to follow him off the Mway so he could take a better look. We got back in, I put it in gear,,,& nothing happened. The clutch had gone.Well that explained that..so he towed us off the motorway & we waited for the recovery lorry. he left us opposite a little chef so at least Marie was able have a cappuchino while wee waited.The Relay man turned up after an hour & we were home by 11.He dropped the car outside the garage (the same one that had said the clutch was fine......) & we came back via the chippies - I had a saveloy & her nibs had some battered mushrooms.

So have fun without us, Anna & Pam & crew.
We'll have another go at coming up next month - perhaps you can have 4 parties this year tiggsybabes:-

I'm missing you, I've got almost sorted, I would have made people help last night if you hadn't broken down so it was all nice.

Take Marie out somewhere nice to celebrate Pam and Anna's birthday party and have time to relax. That'll be nice :-)

Well, now you have learned not to let mice handle your planning.
