.....and too late to wish him bon voyage.
Oh no it's not! (He's behiiiind you).
Setting out about 8pm tonight (two hours or so?) ....all packed, taking a lot of my Mum's stuff from her home down to the farmhouse, so my boot (trunk) is filled with 2 tv's (small) a microwave, a small table, loads of old framed family photos, a strimmer (weedwhacker?) various heaps of towels, tablecloths and kitchen stuff, and an inflatable paddling pool(??).
My car now looks like the beginning sequence of the Beverley Hillbillies!
May get back on later, if I get time, but many thanks for all the suggestions....I've written up a new list, and will pass it on to the offspring.
