I get something from the shop. Something a little different from the 3 famous Grouses they have here. I wonder if they will like it. If nothing else the bottle is nice.

We crusie for some miles until we get to Corley services where I’m requested to make a pit stop. I consider plugging the car in but the people with the blue car seem to be having enough trouble plugging there’s in, so I don’t bother.

As we have stoped I decide to have a burger. Then Rob and Dad want a burger.

keeping up the christmas cards for another week.
