He was caught last Wednesday but the letter arrived yesterday. He has an option: he can pay the £80 and get points on his licence or take a Speed Awareness course. He hasn't had time yet to think about what to do as he's off again today to Derby to pick up Father-in-law to bring him to stay for a few days.
When I saw the letter I was just so relieved it wasn't me who got it. Husband laughed when he opened the letter - after swearing mildly - but I imagine I would have got the full 'driving carefully and sensibly' lecture.

The phone rang this morning before Husband set off. He answered him and I heard him say, 'Today,' and my heart flipped out of my ear. 'Is Daughter-in-law in labour?' I yelled.
She wasn't. It was Pop checking if it was today Husband was collecting him. But Due Date is next Wednesday so every time the phone rings now I'm on it like an expectant father.
