There was I minding my own business when the phone rang and..........

It was Mark300SL wanting to pop in for a chat......

What a blooming cheek :devil::D:D

Seriously it was a very nice surprise and extremely thoughtful of him to think of me and pop in.

Just excellent and very informative conversation.

I dread to think about what time he made it back to the his home address, those 'ten minutes' :devil: flew by :eek::D

I was in Paignton and it would have been very rude not to scrounge a cuppa :D - ten minutes turned into nearly an hour and a quarter!


Left at 6.00pm but the weather was dire last night, and with external temperatures hitting -7/-8 my washers froze, then the fog froze as well in sympathy. I finally got home just before 11.00pm



John & Gloria were the gracious hosts as ever and it made a very pleasant break in my journey :)


Thanks again John

I have to say that John and Gloria make everyone feel welcome. Possibly the worlds best hosts.

Agreed, having had the pleasure and honour to meet the family in the summer.

John - so lovely to see you back again, hope you are feeling a trifle (Gloria does make exquisite trifles!) better.

Happy New Year, may 2009 be a more comfortable year for you.
