Southampton - not

Now yesterday didn't turn out at all as expected in many ways, some that I am not even going to go into on here.  The trip down to Southampton was extremely long as we got caught up in massive delays on the motorway due to accidents and traffic going to the boat show.  We would have picked another weekend if we had realised.  Needless to say by the time we arrived at the College we decided it wouldn't be wise to attempt to get into Southampton itself as we had seen the massive queues of traffic and had of course been stuck in some of them!  Instead we went and had a tea and coffee with our son in the local village and then we went into Portsmouth as our son needed to get a computer mouse!  It was lovely to spend some time with our older son and so good to see him settled, happy and enjoying his course.

As a result poor Henry didn't get to see much of the area, and his mean mummy wouldn't by him any toys either, explaining the newly enforced budget!

He was impressed by this model though.


  1. Lots of traffic can really be a downer and dangerous too! But it sounds like you made the best of the trip.
    Good for you not buying any toys this time. Henry will be okay. LOL! And he will have lots to tell his friends.

  3. So sorry to hear that you weren't able to actually get into Southampton due to the Boat Show Event. This is always a very popular weekend which I have been lucky enough to attend on several occasions in my 'sailing' years.
    I hope that Henry wasn't too disappointed about not getting to see or even go on the ships, at least he was sporting a very smart and suitable jumper for the occasion. I'm sure too that he will soon get over not being allowed to have his usual little 'retail therapy.'
