No point in me typing the same again so I have quoted Jot's reply above and edited it slightlyJot and I played away from home by joining South Wales OC on a short run in Monmouthsire.
Then we bid them farewell and drove the nice route to Hereford - thro' there and then the nice route up to Bromyard where we met Admiral and Mrs and Captain Haddock and the Captain's wife for a late lunch.
Admiral and Mrs then went home as they were en route back from their work's christmas-do [ya gotta laugh] and the Haddocks and I followed Jot the nice route to Ludlow where we met another .COMer who's gonna help Jot with brake pads and their fitting.
That's where we split and I had quite a long run home over more than 50 miles of mixed roads and it was definitely dark by the time I got home!!
