Many hugs, kisses and promises to text/phone/email/Skype later and the party was ready to roll. We honoured the travellers’ ritual which is to enter a motorway service station to be fleeced by a range of franchised fast food vendors providing negligible nutrition for scandalous prices, but the rest of the trip to Heathrow was uneventful.
