The following happened between 9:00 and 23:59 on Saturday 1 April

We were due to get up early to tidy the flat and be in a state to go get Mark and Clares couch early doors. A mix up with Vonnie’s mum however meant that she couldnt get that van and we had to wangle her dad’s huge van from him. This meant we were running late for that and Mark and Clare decided to go through to Airsoft Scotland to pickup some gas and shooting glasses earlier than planned and sort the couches out later on.

Mark had pilfered a sat nav from work so we follwed that rather than start off the journey ourselves. It ened up taking us through Cambuslang and onto the M74 only to get us stuck in roadworks at Bothwell services for 2 and a half hours. Clare wasnt happy and by the time we nicked out at the services and got out of Bothwell she was ready to launch the thing out of the window under a passing artic. Eventually got to the shop which appears to be the only shop in the town and purchased the things were were through for then headed home. It was about 6.30 by the time we hit EK I think when we should have been back by 3.30pm!

Vonnie went and got the van and it took about 10 minutes to get teh couches out of Mark and Clares house and we were expecting 20-30 minutes to get them into the flat. The bloody things wouldnt fit through the living room door!
In the end it took 2 hours to get them in and it involved takeing the door and half the doorframe off. Clare kindly looked after Nairn during this time and I think its drove her to never want a kid ever. I can only thank you guys for your help and we’re really sorry everything took so long and ruined everyones night.

I think I collapsed about 10pm when my hangover stopped and sleep kicked in.

    It didn’t put me off at all – he was just doing what babies do!

    He certainly seemed fairly taken with Nairn anyway!

    Again though, thanks for everything last week Clare, and especially on Saturday – we’ll make it up to you guys when you’re free :)
