Weekend 101 words

Fab weekend at Cat (Simon’s niece) and Rob's in Derby with Helen, Chris, Ally and all. My mother-in-law’s 80th birthday, Simon “A.K.A. Hoppity" was the surprise (should have been working). Arrived at 5pm after sinfully easy trot up M1 – who’d have believed it possible?? MIL very happy to see middle child, tears flowed :o) Pressies! BBQ’d sausages, burgers and Laura’s couscous plus lashings of champagne in the sunshine. Stayed late. Slept at Cat’s mum’s house, Asda for supplies, then Cat’s for brunch. A hot scuttle home down M1. Fish-finger sandwiches – still full after brunch. Lovely weekend – shame I’ve got work today.

Sounds like a great weekend, Jo...A Belated Happy Mothers Day to you, my dear...
Isn't it something when driving on the Highway is a Good Thing? Then you wonder---do they all know something that you don't and so that is why THEY are not on M1??lol!
