Don't know what you're all on about. The only water I found on my way was spray from the cars in front of me driving over a wet road. I has sun most of my trip.

Arrived fine at Richard. He'll tell you later on, I bet.

Didn't last long but then we do get the same annual rainfall as central Spain.

I've left the North and Richard and am on my way South to Cornwall. Will arrive there tomorrow, after a lay over in Bromsgrove's Holiday Inn.

Richard's wall managed to finally do what I had expected it to do from day one: scratch my wheel arch. The neighbor had parked his car a bit in the way of the exit, so I had to take a tighter corner than normal, or scratch that car... Oh well.

On top of that, I managed to fall out of bed and hitting my head on the window sill or radiator. Difficult to say what exactly as it was dark, I was in pain and wondering what to do. That was also on my mind when I drove off this morning.

Not to worry - our Yorkshire stone is hard enough to take those sort of knocks. I've done exactly the same (it's almost a ritual whenever I get a new car), and so has everyone else. My neighbour's house is still standing, 150 years on.

I was sorry to hear about your head this morning. I hope rest and clean sea air will help to clear it before your birthday.

Richard's hardly qualifies as,"the North." Heading up to Dundee on Monday.

No, but Acomb is in the north of England. Mind not saying north of the UK. I was on the Roman border with Scotland. 😃

Mine sure isn't "The South", either. But Jord went on up to Acomb (Northumberland), not the better-known Acomb (York).
