Well, our baby started her long journey today. Very sad saying goodbye to Bluebell and - yes, it rained! She looked very forlorn sitting in the nasty depot but there was a rather fetching Ferrari nearby who definitely had his eye on her. I can see a shipboard romance blossoming!
Teddy travelling with her to keep an eye on things, he had sunglasses and a copy of Australia/NZ magazine to keep him occupied. Doug was a bit neurotic about putting the Teddy in so he contacted our shippers last night asking if it was OK. They replied saying it was fine as long as we didn't leave Teddy any snacks or nibbles for the journey!!!
Nice to know we're not the only silly ones out here!
Borrowing my Dad's very old Mini for next 9 days, no central locking, no 5th gear and no assisted steering. It's bloody hard work!!!
