10 m.p.h.

We left the house on Friday evening for a wedding in Southport and returned almost exactly 48 hours later, having driven almost exactly 480 miles. Which means that we had an average speed over the weekend of 10 miles an hour. Even when we were asleep :-)

Notable moments include a visit to the Royston Vasey Photographic Store (I kid you not, it was a truly surreal experience), and watching fireworks from the roof of the hotel (if I had any chance of finding the member of staff who risked his job for our entertainment, I’d buy him a drink - it was stunning).
