And he is . . .
. . . on his way.
We made it to bed after a pleasant meal. H woke early and took himself off for a swim - 2 miles in the local leisure centre. He then had to go and collect some medication from Tesco - I was getting a bit worried by now so went and fetched him, brought him home and gave him breakfast.
Quick repack and off to the Bus station where we waited for the Coach to arrive. It was on time so off he went, still quite apprehensive, but I am sure he will be fine. At least he is on the way now.
