    We were up dogs walked, out of the house and on the road by 08:00. Satnav predicted getting to Newark from W Cumbria at 11:30 - good, that'll give us time to spend a couple of hours there and then visit a couple of dealers before heading home again.

    All was going well until 3 miles from the show when everything sound to a halt and we virtually didn't move for 2 hours. Gather it was a bad accident that needed the air ambulance to land on the carriageway. So we made the decision not to bother with the show and headed straight to Brownhills, followed by SMC and then Lowdhams.

    I had one excited wife in my hands though who still loved the day out, lost count of the times I had to stop her wandering randomly including out into a road going "oooh - look at that !!"

    Lots of homes and lot of ideas which ended up being time well spent for us and gave us a few more things to consider. And I have one excited and happy if very tired wife.
