FRIDAY> We planned to have the whole family at Wrenbury and have a few beers send off for our Son was due to report to Catterick on Sunday afternoon for training with the Para' reg't. A carer for Sian's mum couldn't get here till Saturday so that put paid to that. SATURDAY> Me Sian and James decided we would would travel to Wrenbury, leaving two girls here to look after Sians Mum. Few beers Saturday, then drop young James off at Crewe station early Sunday. Loaded up the motorhome. Got one mile down the road, went to change down and the gear lever was stuck in 5th, wouldn't budge. Walked back home got the Lanny and towed it home while Sian stood on the clutch. AA Arrived, popped the end off the gear box, bits broken, going nowhere. SUNDAY> Me and Sian took James to Catterick 13 hours round trip in her car, talk about numb bum. MONDAY> It's weird, I'm in a sort of mourning state, had James with me most days for the last 20 years, that I'm now only going to see him for a few weeks a year makes me soo sad and I'm moping about miserable as sin.
