Christmas is coming so take care out there people as the police are on their usual pre- Christmas drinking and driving campaign.

I went out last night and drunk far too much so I left my car at the pub and took a bus home. I passed a police checkpoint where they were breathalysing all the drivers but they waved the bus through.

I arrived home safely and accident free which was surprising as I had never driven a bus before and I still have no idea where I got it from!

I never even have one small drink and drive. Best to use a bus or get a lift or taxi, better safe than sorry
