Well as I expected it was a bit lumpy going west but once north of the M25 we flew home. Record time I think. 315 miles 5 hrs 25 min.

Wet and horrible in the Dales but not very windy.

Ah well another trip done and dusted. Fish n Chips tomorrow and a few drinkies I reckon. House seems to be in one piece, gardens been mowed, re-taxed the car and ready for some grub and a bit of X factor.

Exactly as we thought

I wanted fish and chips last night

But Albert was driving and didnt want a detour
So it was beef burgers salad and home made chips, in beef fat

Our daughter and grandson joined us

But he owes me fish and chips

From the big cod

They are fantastic

I know its a bit of a Brit Cliche but our chippy in Barney is award winning and their Large cod lightly cooked with "real" Mushy peas is something of a real treat!

I still have some French cheese for later. Will be saving my Leffe Rituel for special occasions, one of which will probably be Tuesday when I have to go out and actually do some proper work.

Now I must agree with you on this Barry, its a quality chippy, absolutely lovely. What a cracking occasional treat they are, washed down by a few Timothy Taylor Bolt Makers and then finish off with a nice vintage port, a bit of music on, what a night.

So is ours, although not strictly local, in prestwich

The home of the giant cod, although their ordinary cod is plenty big enough

Perfect mushy peas

Great

You can't really blame them for the weather! The proper hard standings had gone by the time we booked so I knew what we might be in for but we needed to be there. Plus I can't be bothered forever living like a budgerigar, cheap, cheap....
