Even though I emailed the valet team the previous day, my car wasn’t prepared for me at T5 M&G, so I was walked to where it had been stored.  No apparent issue with the car considering the alarm went off on the day I dropped it and the window was reported as not being closed properly.

Having spoken with the Vickster, I agreed to pick up Starbucks from Didcot on the way home.  The Tesla sat nav directed me through Henley, which led to me hitting a pheasant on the way home.  I was doing 60+ and it just wandered out into the middle of the road.  I braked as hard as I could, but the ABS kicked in and I couldn’t slow down in time.  I heard a thud but couldn’t see anything in my rear-view mirror.  I am assuming it didn’t survive.  I felt horrified – first time that sort of thing has happened to me.

There was a long queue at Starbucks in Didcot, but using mobile ordering allowed me to bypass the queue.  Finally, when I got home I received a lovely welcome from Vick and the cats.
