Not really decided on dates yet. It will be via train, boat and bike and will probably be fine.

Actually coming back to London with more stuff than when I arrived is usually a bit of a pain in the bum, but we’ll probably offload any large goods on Mike’s brother and ask him to drive up with them.

Haven’t booked my flights yet. I’m positive I’ll have plenty of choice and will be happy with the price.

Actually it’ll be too cold to take the snake to Blackpool so upgrade that to a minor irk

Haven’t decided what day I’m getting the Megabus back to That London, probably the 21st or 22nd.

I can leave any time (providing I’ve not been on the sauce the night before) which isn’t too bad. Throw in an overpriced double bacon cheeseburger in the services at the half way point and it’s verging on bearable.

Christmas Day - wander just over a mile up the road and back
