Well yesterday was my birthday (smoke free!) way hay!!! I've got a sinus infection at the moment so didn't really plan much for the evening ( I know a bit of a waste of a Saturday birthday :() I decided to go for a walk followed by lunch in a country pub with my daughter before heading to see my mum. As we do quite a lot of walking decided to go somewhere different. I found a nice short walk starting and finishing near a country inn and only 40 minute drive. It turned out to be a lovely sunny day so I wrote down the instructions for the walk and drive (no ink in printer), popped some painkillers for sinus pain and off we went.
Well the driving directions were absolutely hopeless. Got very lost and completely gave up on the directions. At one point we were instructed to turn down a lane which turned out to be a Ford unsuitable for motors!!! After driving round what seemed most of west yorkshire in some pretty horrible traffic we arrived somewhat frazzled 3 HOURS LATER!!! We got out of the car and realised we had left behind the THE DIRECTIONS FOR THE WALK!!!! We were too late for lunch at the Inn so decided to go to the garden centre down the road for something to eat. Although they purported to do food all day and it was only 2:30 they had no food left :rolleyes: There was nothing for it to head back as by this time by sinus pain had increased from dull ache to screaming pain and unfortunately the local chemist was also shut:rolleyes:
We stopped at a Macdonalds on the way back (which actually only took 35 minutes)as my daughter was hungry by this time and I celebrated with a cheese burger overlooking a carpark :rolleyes:. Well I did laugh about it on the way back and have done since but the strangest thing was - I NEVER WANTED A CIGARETTE!!!!
