The aftermath!

Today should have been the gathering of my clan here chez Jennytc but fate conspired to ensure things didn't go according to plan.
Younger son in Crewe couldn't come because of a visit from his father-in-law, elder daughter, in Liverpool from Sheffield, should have been collecting car-less elder son and family from Bradford and bringing them with her but that plan was scuppered because she has been really ill and not able to drive. That left younger daughter and boyfriend and they did come.........eventually, when boyfriend had finished shopping and driven from Doncaster to pick up daughter from Liverpool and they had stopped getting lost en route (cue sales pitch from Keith on GPS systems!)
So we did have a very pleasant meal mid-afternoon and all was well except that they brought their dog, a lively 2 year old bitch and it was hate at first sight between her and Lucy - no Christmas spirit for them, it seems.
Oh, and to top it all, Keith hasn't been well since yesterday evening and has finally agreed to give up the struggle and go to bed.

No, I don't think so, I think it's more like a bug of some sort. It's not like him to give in, I must admit.
