Many hours later, the bleary-eyed pig was travelling west along the A13. She glanced in the mirror at her slumbering family. They looked beautiful.
Yet Pig can’t shake that niggling feeling that some detail has been overlooked, did she turn the heating off? Did she pack the…oh. The husband. Forgot to pack the husband.
Pig thought of the many kilometres the excited, holiday bus had already travelled. She thought of how long it had taken for all the piglets to fall asleep. She thought of them all waking up as she turned the bus around.
Then she thought of her poor, beleaguered husband in his crumpled, jet-lagged suit. She thought of how many countries he had visited in the last 7 days. She thought of his week-end away with his mates. Pig knew she had to do the right thing. She reached for her mobile.
"Hey hon, I think you’re going to have to get a train…".
Have a happy Easter with your loved ones!
Pig will be back sometime in Aprilx
