We took a day out to be proper tourists.
First, in Stratford-on-Avon where Farm Girl told Young Will she was looking forward to studying A Midsummer’s Night Dream next year.
Then on to Coventry, a place where the message of forgiveness never fails to humble me.
Then it was a quick dash up the traffic-choked roads for a dinner date with the Lichfield (formally Spanish) branch of the family. All was going swimmingly until the Homestead Holiday Mobile stopped being mobile.
You take a different view of traffic-choked roads when it’s you doing the choking.
Luckily, the RAC and Uncle Steve arrived at the same time and the planned family rendezvous was able to take place complete with delicious cottage pie, real vegetables…and a couple of glasses of wine.

That wasn’t too bad in the end then.
All part of the adventure and it makes a great story once a bit of time has elapsed😊
sounds like a busy day! I would hate to have a breakdown in unfamiliar territory like that. Glad it was resolved. And cottage pie – a very satisfactory pick me up. Real vegetables? Been a bit short on the greens so far?
Starting to crave a proper stirfry. Baked beans just don’t cut it!
I hope Farm Girl eventually took her coat off…!
😊washing clothes can be troublesome on the road. She had no clean too layers😊
Sounds like a great day despite vehicle trouble, glad you got it sorted.
Contrary being that I am, I don’t enjoy being among “tourists”, but there is no denying the draw of both cities
Breaking down on familiar roads is bad enough but abroad must be the pits!! Glad you were rescued and had some good home cooking for a change.
Trying to work out exactly where we were was the hardest thing. Our Sat Nav was vague as was gps and none of us had any idea. We’re lucky anyone found us😊
