Morning folks. 

What a weekend that was. Pomp, circumstance and pork pies on Saturday with bright sunshine and Lionel Richie yesterday. It was a beautifully hot Sunday, we went to Bowes Museum and the Winston Spitfire bridge before settling down to play 'around the world' board game which we then abandoned to watch the concert. 

Today I'm driving back up to Glasgow. I'm going via a shop called Cranston's at Penrith, I need more of their brilliant coronation sausages, the best I have ever tasted, which I'll stick in Alan's freezer for when I return from my travels. Yes, I'm now getting excited! 

DP1 - have a wonderful time with your little one at Butlin's, she'll love it. 

I hope that everyone is doing well. Happy Bank Holiday Monday.
