Are you still awake Nicholas ?
On Friday afternoon we visited the Chandlers, the Farm shop and for some reason we had to go to the garden centre, Just to look around apparently although we did end up buying a couple of sets of battery operated Christmas lights. (Who said I was worse than Scrooge)
We spent the night at Whilton then pulled pins at 10.15 on Saturday morning. The temperature was just nudging 3 deg but the sun was out which made it feel a lot warmer. We stopped off in Weedon bec to pick up a few supplies and then another couple of stops to pick up wood we found on the towpath.
