2 Tone's To Cumbria

Tony came to my house for 6am Sunday morning, yes 6am on our day off, then set off up the M18,M62,A1(M) heading through Harewood (leeds) then through Ilkley to stop off at Kirkby Lonsdale for a Brew.
We then re-fuelled up and off again, destation was Parton Near Whitehaven, we arrived about 12pm after stopping off at Windermere and then Keswick (no rush then eh).
Sunday dinner at Tony's mum's house & met his sister and her grandson (dinner was very nice ).
After some pudding and a cuppa it was off down to Barrow In Furness to see Tony's brother who came off his Gixa 1000 last Sunday in Kendal, he was a lucky man and is now on the mend.
Re-fuelled up at Ulveston and next stop was Squires Cafe at Sherburn on the way home, we just had to go there as a Sunday would not be Sunday without a visit there and another cuppa ( needed the break anyway ).
We left Squires at 19.40hrs and back home it was. I covered 362.5 miles today and Tony a bit more as he lives out near Scunthorpe, Great day was Had....

Post from John Lewis 'Europe-End-to-End'

Dear Blog477, All over The World.

I had a glitch there!

Three days at local retail outlets raised £780! I was on my own - demonstrates the feeling for our guys in Afghanistan. Of all the people I spoke to in theses three days NOT ONE wanted us to stay there!

Not a lot to report this weekend apart from my little Escapade on the A 18 near Crowle, travelling to may mate Tony's house near Scunthorpe to put some of that Ultra Seal in the Tyres when the little box of the stuff decided to leave my Grab Net holding it on to my seat.
I might as well have thrown £25 in the Air as for what had happened LOL.
Anyway I still went over to Tony's for a cuppa and a chat and then came back to Doncaster, so a new order will be placed with the Distributor of Ultra Seal in the morning ( & it's cheaper as well ).
