In short. I was stressed about the week ahead. The weekend was being stolen by imperatives.
It started to go wrong when my driving licence plus a van hire plus a sunday morning added up to a no-can-do. They needed to get extra approval for my extra points and the insurers weren't open. That was that plan stuffed. I went through plenty of crazy contingency plans before deciding to make the van-pick-up a second trip at some later juncture. Sigh. It's never easy.
Stonehenge was fun. The audio-commentary made me laugh. "Why is it here? We don't know. Maybe Merlin spirited the stones here." Good old Merlin.
We followed the trip up with lunch in a nearby pub and then parted company in good spirits. I loaded a car up with some essentials and headed to Newcastle. I arrived late enough to want nothing more than the company of my bed. Why is life so tricky? It's a mystery.
