Christmas adventure

December 19, 2010

Last night Team Green went to the Royal Albert Hall to see Carols by Candlelight. We were meant to be going by coach, but it was cancelled due to the snow. We could change our tickets, but then it clashed with something else, so we decided to risk it and drive.

I was a bit very nervous about the drive. I googled "emergency car snow kit" and loaded the car with blankets, changes of clothes, flask of hot water, tea bags (Earl Grey because we wouldn't have any milk), food, torches, bits of cardboard to put under the wheels in case of wheel spin, a shovel, first aid kit, miniature of whisky (!), magazines, my crochet and the DS in case we got bored, and God knows what else.
Mattgreen rolled his eyes. A lot.

In fact, the journey wasn't too bad. A bit hairy in a few places, but not as scary as my 'should've been 45 mins but actually took 3 hours' journey home from Surrey on Friday.

We arrived, we got settled in our seats, and Mattgreen sat back in his seat and sighed. "What an enormous organ," he said, with a perfectly straight face. "It certainly is," I reply, grinning. Mattgreen continues, "That's the second biggest organ Mummy has ever seen", a smile creeping across his face. Isabel immediately said, "What's the first biggest Mummy?"

Mattgreen doubles over in his seat, choking with laughter, leaving me to come up with some implausible excuse and change the subject.
