But I hear Blackburn, Derby and Stoke are nice places to visit this time of year..................and Huddersfield!!! :thumbup:
Your new avatar is brill even though it does remind me a little of ' Joe 90 ' :lol:

Places that are probably nicer than say Wolverhampton, Burnley and Leicester .... surely :angel:
While you're visiting Stoke you can get a quick Covid test at the drive through testing station in the car park. Possibly the best bit of any visit to Stoke.

It has. So don't bother bringing your salopettes or sun goggles.

So all that is left, apart from the test Centre, is the sheer excitement of driving along a completed section of the A500

Unless a vaccine comes avaliable you'll be better off booking a tin-can in Dorset somewhere...apparently they do a very good click and collect service. :thumbup:
I hope it's better than that cheapo face mask you palmed off on me..................

We’re having a new one fitted at the moment.
Three weeks in. Thank goodness for the bbq and sunny evenings.
As usual for me, We’ve gone miles over budget but I will say that the guy I booked to fit it is a proper tradesman.
So far, so good 👍

Ps Kfc tonight 😁

We're thinking of having a new patio and some other landscaping in the garden next year - that's one way of using our Fred Olsen refund.

I've got the South America cruise booked for January 2022 - I have a feeling we will cancel that one. Whatever happens with the virus, the cruise now seems too long and too far from home after all that's happened.

Yesterday we went on a day trip by coach, and we had to pick up people from Gravesend. We could see poor old Columbus over the river in Tilbury - I felt quite sad, as I'll probably never sail on her again, now that CMV have folded.
