    That’s life, it’s the way it is!

    (It’s because you find hotels without family rooms! :p)

    Hopefully the issues we had are now resolved (confirm Monday the 8th) . If so we look more likely to make it but will take a sparrow fart crossing Saturday aiming to arrive around midday. Our return will be sometime around 6pm France time Sunday.

    LK , So lets suppose I get pulled and fined. Do they impound the car or can I continue on my journey? Can I get fined again? Point being cost of winter set of tyres £600ish. Another set of alloys or pay someone to change on and off each winter/summer period. Or a £73ish fine?

    No idea. Just something to be aware of if the weather looks iffy.

    Planning on giving Michelin Cross Climates a go, so should be OK.... but it does say you're ok on summer tyres as long as the surface is cleared.
