We’ve all been there haven’t we? When you really, really need to ‘go’ and there are unexpectedly no facilities to use. My worst experience isn’t even my own. I drove to Kilkenny (I know, long way, but at least it wasn’t Tipperary) and once we got off the ferry, in the car, we were in Dublin. I know there are many people who love Dublin, but I’m not one of them and especially when I’m driving. I got confused, I got lost. I had my aged mother beside me holding the map upside down, pressing the satnav ineffectually and saying she needed the toilet. I went BOTH WAYS through a toll road… god knows how.
Eventually I got a bit churlish and suggested she hold her wee and her tongue until I was clear of Dublin’s dismal drive ways and onto the motorway going south so that I could find some appropriate rest area or services.
This, as it turned out, was a mistake because there simply wasn’t one.
I could feel her pain. There were no lay-bys, no pull-ins, no services AT ALL. The poor woman had to hold it for a long time and it all got a bit surreal as miles and miles of motorway passed by with narry a car or lorry, not a sniff of a building for hours. I’d have come off at a junction, but there weren’t many junctions and when there were, there was no visible sign of human life
We eventually left the motorway at our correct junction and found we were in the middle of nowhere with – again – no buildings, but eventually found a garage where she divested herself of the facilities with as much dignity and grace as she could muster.
This blog picture is for her, by way of an apology. I’m sorry Mum. I bless your bladder.

KoKoLoReS’s Nathalie Hair is out right now at Hairology and until the 30th of this month. It’s a long, classic style with some great colour HUDs.
Addams made the Betina Tank top and Luna Rubberised Pants for the current round of Collabor88. I love the laced up detail of the tank top, a cleavage enhancing piece of design genius 🙂
Here’s some more pictures, including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
And finally, here is the ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. Don’t worry, I’d had a visit to the Ladies Room before I recorded it.
