The day i had yesterday !
« on: 15:25, Tue 11 November 2008 »
Started out by pi55ing down with rain so no worky, then i decided that we'd make use of the day by looking at a new car for the wife, i'm in Sussex, cars near Slough, just off the M4 to be exact.

We head off, the wife, my little boy & me, motorway not too bad etc for once so we get there in good time, bloody wet though.

Have a look round the car, slight oil leak & 2 near bald tyres, result me thinks as i can knock the guy down (car was up for 2225 & i got it down to 1850) All good i'm thinking.......

This is where it get's interesting for those still with me :)

We set off home, the wife in my car & me in the ZR as i'm insured for any car, we come to the last roundabout on the M4 to hit the 25 & yep, you guessed it, we get split up, i wait on the hard shoulder just round the rounabout only to see the wife dissapear off to Heathrow, crap   i'm thinking, so i'm in the car, screaming NOOOOOO (yes i was actually shouting that & continued to do so for quite a while) & then it gets worse, my mobile is in MY car so no way of comunication!

I wait for a bit & then start to panic, reverse up a little & get back round the roundabout & head off into Heathrow myself, no sign, more panic. So i head back to the garage so i can use there phone, except i can remember 2 numbers, mine & my old bosses, i give the boss a quick call to see if on the off chance they have her number, yes, wahey, panic over... except it's her old number , crap!

So i ring my phone, no answer, i try 20 times, still nothing, now i'm really panicing as i know the wife has no idea of where she is, i gave her advice if we got lost to look for M25 S signs & then M23 S signs but since she'd headed off into the terminals ......

All this & i've got no & the car needs petrol !

Luckily the garage stuck a squirt in for me, i give one last try on the mobile & get an answer... can't talk now i'm driving she says  Err yeah but Where TF are you, i'm 25 miles from Gatwick she says  :lol:  well the relief i can tell you... & we had to get back to pick up my daughter from school, luckily the wife sorted that but we also had to get back to pick up my brother & his boy to go to the O2 arena, was supposed to leave at 4pm, accident on the M25 & i get back at 330pm & back out the door back onto the M25 the other way up to Dartford !!

Bloody long day for me!

Tell me about it,

I had a glass of Robinsons orange after work yesterday and i put slightly too much orange in, basically turning the liquid to syrup and really spoiling the experience for me...so you're not alone my friend, you're not alone.

Oh christ!

I fully understand, too rich a mixture can fur your mouth up and leave you feeling more thirsty then before.

Its good to know that we can share our problems lads, thanks 5teve for opening the floodgates.  I am slowly learning to be less liberal with the OJ, but these things take time...

Reminds me of my brother.

Going to Bluewater.

Come through the tolls, its literally your first left out of them.

He had to go 60 miles to get back to there!
