Jan has been so good recently, getting gold stars for each of the last two weeks and no corrective interviews, that I decided to reward her with a shopping trip. A shopping trip with an extra little treat thrown in.
On the way down the A1 there was a service station that boasted a Costa and an M&S.
As it was getting near lunchtime I pulled in, the place was absolutely heaving, and, as well as buying her a hot chocolate (I'm all heart), I allowed her to choose something for her lunch from M&S. Me, I had The Ultimate New York Deli, Pastrami on Rye. God it was good.
But wait, the fun didn't stop there. It was then on to Ikea just south of Leeds on the M62. Some people dream of a holiday in the Seychelles but for me it's seeing the smile on Jan's face as we get to Ikea. I really know how to spoil a girl!
However, what I'll never understand is how everything I suggest that we buy is either not needed or a waste of money but we still come away with a trolley load of stuff.
Oh well, at least she has a smile on her face, lucky girl.
