We are not alone for this holiday. Last weekend at our daughter Christine and son-in-law Kevins 40th birthday party it was suggested that maybe Kevs parents would like to join us.

|From L to R, Big Kev and Gunda (little Kevs mum and dad) our son Colin with daughter in law Iwona, little Kev and Christine, Ian and me.|
Big Kev and Gunda have one of those super-duper motorhomes, all singing, all dancing 6 berth with one of those beds that descend from the ceiling with a push of a button. Posh or what!!! Slightly longer than the Beast and very nicely put together. Anyway, it was a great suggestion so today we left roughly at the same time, them leaving from Nuneaton and us from Langley. They took the route that went through Leeds, we took the M1 and then the A1(M). Bearing in mind they must be a good 25 miles further South then us we fully expected to arrive at the designated meeting place of Scotch Corner well before them. But we had hold up after hold up so actually arrived after them. Kettle was on though so there was something to be said for arriving later!

Tomorrow the adventure begins but as yet nothing has been planned other than a trip on the Falkirk Wheel next week.
