no through road
Today we got in the car and headed south.
Grace: "Where are we going Mum? What do you mean you don't know? You're driving!"
We found an abandoned house and a patch of "prickly purple thingy's that look so lovely but hurt my butt". We found a view across some farms and listened to the echo's of the cattle. We stopped in the little village and had a flat white, caramel milkshake and a mango smoothie. We poked around in antique shops looking for an old mirror and found old glass milk bottles instead.
We laughed and laughed and laughed.
We rang Ian at work and told him that we loved him and wished he was with us. He wished he was with us too.
I like to get in the car and just drive. Down dirt lanes. No through roads. Streets I've never been before. Because I can.
