Default Missed visit

Was planning on visiting Homebrew shop uk while in the area this weekend, as others were driving they refused to take me, then as a temptation as we were going to the crematorium drove past it, ten metres away and sister wouldn't let me out of the car and had others following behind on way back so couldn't stop.

On a positve note picked up 3 ltrs of waitrose pressed white grape juice.

You definitely need to change your chauffeur!

Mind you, a sister that drives you past the crematorium is to be loved.

Mine would probably just drop me off there and kind of hope!

I passed the love brewing in Chesterfield on a bus to Bakewell to visit Thornbridge. Then forgot to pop in on the way home when I was driving.
