Holbeach Lincs

I saw two yesterday, in Holbeach Lincolnshire.

One blue, one silver, almost identical to mine. Bound to happen the day after I picked mine up I suppose!

Knowing where I live, I suspect the two I spotted belong to people too old to even know the internet exists.

I have a feeling she is in the Norwich area, which is about 60 miles from me I think.

That sounds like a plan, I'm always looking for an excuse to go for a drive somewhere.

Got a long weekend in Brighton this month (although we're taking the TT so we can share the driving), then I'm off to Sheffield for a weekend at the start of March, then Stroud for another weekend! Then Spain at the end of March, and I'll be driving there in the SLK.

I was in Wisbech today, that's where I do my youth work, and my shopping! It was Wisbech Halfords where I got new wiper blades today. I normally avoid Halfords but I needed wipers instantly as I am anal about a clean windscreen!

Are you that close to Sandra and Sean Jon? Can't we get you to travel a little less? :-)

I'm not averse to a bit of travelling, and it looks like between us all I'm the most central anyway!

I used to drive for a living so distance doesnt worry me and when you look on the map wisbech is as near midway between Norwich and Leicester as dammit is to swearing. cant see any need to drag you towards Leicester unless you wat a longer drive out A47 for me A52 for Sean easy driving

In that area would be OK but not Peterborough itself. Its just a boring city . Been a while since I was out that way I am trying to think what places are nice out there. Market Deeping is nice as I recall

If you're looking Peterborough, Deeping, what about Spalding? It's quite a nice little town. Or Stamford.

Peterborough is categorically boring, I lived there for over 20 years until I escaped over here.
