We were not out on AmyJo this weekend as we had a date in Essex with Chris's mum Mary, as Sunday was her 85th birthday. We set off Friday night and stayed at Chris's brother Alan's house.
On Saturday we visited my parents and took them out to lunch but forgot my camera so did not get any photos but on Sunday I did remember it, We took Mary out for a meal and she enjoyed the attention.

After a lovely meal we took Mary back to the home and spent some more time with her there

Later at Watford Gap services it felt strange as only the weekend before we had past the services on the cut in AmyJo yet there we were barely 100 yards away from the cut but on our way home via car.
For those who asked at home here is a video of us in Crick tunnel to give you a feel for what its like
