Back up in the, erm, 'frozen' north!

Well, I made it! It was a nightmare journey for my daughter and I as we drove from Newcastle to London to collect my belongings, then to Chadwell Heath in Essex to collect some stuff from my sister, then back home to Newcastle again!

In all it took us from 8am on Monday morning until 2am on Tuesday morning. The worst part of the journey was going to my sisters house, as there was an accident on the A12 and I didn't know of an alternative route. We sat in traffic around Gants Hill for about 2 hours!

Anyway, we have now sorted all of my stuff out and put it away. My wife, daughter, dog and cats are all pleased to see me home! My wife still has another four weeks or so to go before the baby arrives, but I think it will arrive earlier than planned. I'll keep you all informed.

Not sure why they call us the 'frozen north' as ever since I arrived back on Saturday afternoon, the temperatures have been in the 80s with bright sunshine. We've been forecast thunderstorms for the last 5 nights but they never arrive! The poor garden is looking parched, but at least up here I'm not subject to a hosepipe ban!

By the way, many thanks to all of you who left goodwill messages in my comments or sent me an email. All very much appreciated.

I start working back on the buses again on Monday so I'll let you know how it goes.
