We've also been away for a couple of long weekends, the first to Warners at Cricket St Thomas, Somerset. A 60s weekend with our Lincolnshire friends, although the weather could have been a bit better.
The second was up in Staffordshire for our niece's wedding, and on to the Peak District for a few days. Again the weather could have been better, but we saw Chesterfield, Matlock, Bakewell (along with the world and his wife on Bank Holiday Monday), and beautiful scenery.
On a personal note, we've used numerous Travelodges over the years, and this time for one of the nights decided to use a Premier Inn. Fantastic choice of breakfasts included, but oh dear, about time they replaced their old mattresses, or has Lenny Henry being trying out the one we had?
