I've got a challenge this weekend, back on the road to get son to Wales squad training. As me and Mrs Quins are just getting over flu we are both going to share the driving. Kent , Cheltemham this afternoon, Then N Wales, Cheltenham and back to Kent tomorrow. Staying Saturday in his student digs so will have to eat out.... I'm thinking Harvester... Then we've got all day in Deeside on Sunday while he trains. I usually take my bike and have a ride but I'm not up to that at the moment.Might pop into Chester. Any tips on eating out, I can only think of getting a picnic from a supermarket that's SW friendly, chicken thighs etc, the sports centre does a decent omlette but it is deffo cooked in oil. I suppose jacket potatoes are the other option. It's going to be a long Sunday.

Any tips @Trefoil @Happy Holidays @Texty_F @Poppet12
Just back home, horrible driving conditions, me and Mrs shared. Freezing fog in south east.

B. Wholemeal spaghetti with chopped tomatoes that I put in a pot and ate in the car

L. Cheese ham onion mushroom Omelette at sports centre 1/2 jacket and salad, sysn for omlette 2-3 for oil.

D. Asda tandoori chicken thighs , ate in the car in way home.
