As Andy will vouch for, things with me and my Mum never go smoothly, our lives are like one long comedy routine, only it's only funny for everyone else! And today was no exception. Having raced back to Manchester Piccadilly, almost killing us twice, my Mum missed her train home to the north east by the skin of her teeth. She was quite happy to wait an hour for the next one but there's no way on this earth I was leaving my lovely Mum sitting in that station, alone, to then do her journey, so we jumped in the car and I drove her back as far as Scotch Corner...she isn't waiting around on my watch!
So my less than an hour return trip to drop her at the station turned into a 5 and a half hour one, the things you do for your Mum!!!
