Finally the rain began to ease off at around midday, so I set off to one of the local DIY stores to buy some tools. I managed to find a decent set of Allen keys, No need for SF to set foot in my home now as we have the tools to put JA's bike together ourselves, besides there has been no sight or sound of him today. I also got a wrench as our toilet seat has mysteriously gained a split. We need to get the old one off before we can put the new one on. Nipping into asda to get food for a week of lunches when the boys are home.
By now it was 1pm and I was starving so I called home and asked if the boys wanted a Macdonalds, the three who were at home (must be the first time in months that DC hasn't left the house all day) took advantage of this unexpected and rare treat. As the drive thru is very close to Asda I didn't think it would be long before I would be eating my burger. Why I wanted this I don't really know as I did know that I would not enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
As I arrive at the turning for Maccy D's I am confronted with a queue of cars meaning that it tok a good 5 minutes to get onto the end of the line. Finally I am across the road and heading for the entrance, there are cars snaking around the edge of the carpark pased the windows where you place the order pay and collect your food. There is a queue of cars from the end of the road back out towards the main road causing a back up of traffic, there is another queue of cars coming from the direction of Asda, more chaos. But the queue for food is moving fairly steadily. After about 10 minutes I reach the lady taking the orders on an an electronic order pad. Another five minutes and I am by the window to pay. Two more minutes and I am collecting my food. I am passed the tray with 5 drinks then a large bag of food followed by the happy meal. So getting this fast food wasn't as fast as I had expected.....I had even considered driving down the motorway to get my food as that might be quicker!!
Anyway eventually I have escaped from the crowds of Macy D's or so I thought. when got home I was unloading my shopping when OJ asked where his and ET's burgers were. It seems that they were missing. so Off I go back across town park up and jin the long queue of diners until I get to a place where I can make my way passed the queue and go over to the corner where the drive through orders are despatched. I told them I didn't have two of my meals I had paid for. I soon had in my possession a bag of the missing food. By the time I got home it was now 2pm so my fast food had taken me an hour to get.
