    right - all votes in?

    The answer is
    the last one - we got stuck waiting to get on the M25 dartford crossing!

    we went to Lakeside to get all our buffet food from the wholesaler in the morning - though quick journey and we'll have al afternoon to do the stuff we need to do
    but!

    there was a lorry fire on the QE2 bridge, and we got to the junction of lakeside and the road about half an hour after it had happened - they'd put a barrier down on the slip road to clear the traffic on the main road and we had to turn off our engine and sit in the queue for three hours, while the radio people helpfully told us the same thing over and over again.
    Katherine and I walked down to burger king after an hour and got us all lunch. then we sat for the rest of the time.

    we finally got moving at about 4 o'clock, and we went under the tunnel back to kent (the bridge was now closed)
    there was talk about people saying they should stop charging cars for the privilege at the tolls, but we had to pay - as soon as we'd got home, they said that they'd stopped the charge temporarily!
    :D

    all that food in the back !
    worst thing was, the main wedding party was in the car - me, Ian, my mum and Dad and my Best Woman!!
    we had to get back for the wedding rehearsal at 6:45!

    and it meant that everything we should have done on friday afternoon we had to do on saturday morning!
    not what you need a few hours before your wedding!

    Bloody hell! That's a massive pain in the ass right there! I hate being stuck in traffic at the best of times, I'd have been going crazy! Well done for not going completely bridezilla and murdering anyone :D x

    Oh what a nightmare! I'd have gone nuts. You seem soooooo remarkably calmer than I would be :)

    I HATE the m25, used to live until very recently in East Sussex and regularly travelled to Colchester so know that bridge only too well. Nasty bad motorway!
