“That’s good then you can be my guest if you like.’

“Will your daughter not be home?’

“No, she is staying with her real father but I will call her when we get back.’

Tracey poured the coffee for them and placed a piece of Edam cheese on a digestive biscuit.’

It’s a nice day again today isn’t it?’

Yes; we could take a drive out somewhere if you like?’

“We could where do you fancy?’

“How about Wales?’

 “I could take you to my mother’s house and introduce you to my brother.’

“Well we would have to stop of and buy some clothes first; I wouldn’t want to meet your family looking like this.’ Don’t worry my parents live in the valley and they are used to seeing fell walkers.’

“I need a change of underwear and some clean socks.’

“Don’t worry we can call into a shop along the way and pick up something.’

“Right then North Wales it is then. They packed the car then waited until John came to collect the key he was early which was good. They thanked him then got on their way. We are talking about a good five hour journey to Llandudno you know.’

“I know its seven from where I live.’

Do you drive down there very often?’

“It’s been at least nine months since I was home last; so it will be nice to see mam, dad, and my brother again.’

“You will have to translate for me if your mother speaks Welch as I don’t speak a word.

“Just say this “Rwyn Falchi Gwrdd a Chi’

“What does that mean?

“It means I am pleased to meet you.’

Gordon practiced it over and over as he drove along before asking the quickest way to Llandudno. Take the M62 to Blackpool then carry on towards Liverpool on the M53

That should bring us onto Chester on the A65 then onto Llandudno.’

Once they reached Liverpool they stopped off to buy some clothes. Gordon bought himself a pair of Levi Jeans some Fred Perry tee shirts a lightweight jacket, some underwear, new socks, and a pair of smart shoes. He waited until Tracey had brought her clothes to the till and Gordon paid for them all by cheque.’

“I will pay you back Gordon when we get back I promise; I didn’t bring that much out with me. I was thinking that we were just going home after walking up the mountain.’

“Forget about it Tracey it is nothing.’

No I’m sorry I like to pay my way; it’s how my parents brought me up.’ They stopped off at a café and ate a cooked meal, drove to a garage and topped up before heading off again. The drive down to Chester was quick as the traffic was light and Gordon was able to put his foot down.

They turned left then headed toward Llandudno.

“We ought to be there in an hour.’

Sooner if I put my foot down said Gordon;

“You should have been a racing driver, you always drive fast.’

“The only way to travel I say.’

“Have you ever been caught speeding?’

“Never, well in Wales be careful because there is a lot of traffic police.’

“Thanks for reminding me.’

“Have you ever been to Wales before?’
