After that I went and had a nice warm long shower got dressed then watched some TV. Tewnty minutes later we were at the shop getting some snacks for the bus drive (lollies and more lollies).
Then we got to the bus station my mum was cryingbecause my brother lives with dad and he was coming back with me she gets really emo its really funny!! But then I started crying I hadden't seen my dad in six years.
