Saturday 20th April
I drive to Northampton to collect the old biddy. I arrive at 12:30, and I'm greeted by some Spam sandwiches.
"Never again." she said. "I was so exhausted last year, I said I'd never go with you again."
Now she tells me. This would have saved a lot of suffering for both parties.
She's now recovered and wants another trip!
I pack her many mysterious bags in to the car.
"Haw Haw Haw," Jolly Molly cackles, "Off we go!"
I choose a leisurely circuitous route. We'd be there in just over an hour if I went the
direct way. We skirt around Northampton, Daventry, Southam, Morton in Marsh to
Batsford Arboretum, where we have a welcome relief stop at 14:30.
We pass Cousin Arthur's house, and on through Broadway and Winchcombe to this year's holiday destination: Bishop's Cleeve.
